Open Calls, Together Apart

#Future (English cohort)
OPEN CALL CLOSED - On going residence

02.06.21 14.07.21

The best way to predict the future is to create it. Peter Drucker


The possibility of the future is one that is in constant crisis, and the pandemic context has made its instability even more explicit. Faced with and within that context, the questions, longings, but above all, the affirmative gestures of the present and the way in which we express them, come to be reviewed and be questioned.

#FUTURE is the word that summons us and through which we invite you to join us in the next edition of  our online program Together Apart.

From #FUTURE, we propose a space and time for collaboration, creation and analysis to, collectively, activate our imagination about possible futures: what future(s) do we want in our present(s)? And how can we use our practices to expand those futures or contribute to their realization?

We will also review what futures have been imagined by artistic practices in the past and how these have been normalized or discarded with the passing of time. This being the 5th session of the program, we have come to understand that the diversity of participating artists and cultural actors contributes to creating and considering these issues from more complex and inclusive perspectives: what common futures can we sketch from seemingly so different contexts? And what futures do we envision for the arts?

Remote shelters thought of as virtual residencies and the encounters that are generated in and through them have been the way in which, from Fundación´ace, we have circumvented the impossibility of international mobility—this, in turn, has been transformed into a methodology that allows us to make international meetings more accessible.

During 2020 and the first half of 2021, this program has been completed by 90 artists, curators and academics from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Croatia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, England, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, United States, Holland, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and Venezuela. During August-September 2020 we developed #Shelter, its first edition in English, which was followed by #Nido, its second edition, in Spanish, during October-November 2020, #Frontera / #Frontier (in Spanish and English), which took place in February -March 2021.

In the past, after this program, many of the participants have continued to do joint projects after the end of the program and all have expanded their networks of contacts, leaving us very stimulating testimonies that encourage us to continue with this activity.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
