Open Calls, Together Apart
#5 | FUTURO (Spanish cohort)
Open Call closed - On going residence
The best way to predict the future is to create it. Peter Drucker
#FUTURE is the word that summons us and through which we invite you to join us in the next edition of Together Apart.
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 put to the test. From #FUTURO 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 hybrid residencies. 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. The program, 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, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Croatia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, England, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, United States, Holland, Norway, Spain 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, and #Frontera in Spanish, which took place in February -March 2021. 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.
