IPACCHow did this institution come about? How did art agents and institutions manage to act long-term under the short-termism of the Present’s political and economic structures? Were they able to prefigure more-than-human institutional ecologies?
The Jan van Eyck’s Stone of FollyThe current state of urgency paradoxically demands for systemic-thinking, complexity, opacity and delay, which are at the core of creative, innovative and speculative practices.
Temporary SpacesThe presentations hinted at a struggle with modern heritage in countries such as the UAE and Kuwait, while pointing to ways in which architectural, curatorial and artistic methodologies can provide new ways of dealing with such heritage today.
construction-construct'Things' are more than just stable and objective matter, being in fact mediatory, transitive and in constant entanglement with both humans and non-human agents. Not only does materiality take on social meanings, but also social agency is enacted and shaped through materiality.
ConstructoThe stacking of bricks is at once the embodiment of his exploitation and his personal fulfillment. He mirrors himself in the brick, they share the same disposition, a certain quality of character, a state of readiness and a tendency to behave in a specific way.
assertion/ expulsionthey occasionally reveal themselves under the right light and to those who are attentive enough. Only then, they are able to point to the invisible and silent conflictual forces that continuously build our common ground, and which are permanently throbbing from within its foundations.
Landscape with BearFrom a collection that is fragmentary, uncertain and unstable, there is potential to create a consonant kind of knowledge: one that constantly reinvents its alliances. This collection called for different outlooks, expertise, knowledge and diverse perspectives beyond an art historical approach.
The Metropolis Within a SiteComing soon
Assisted ReproductionIn the butcher shop of the Futurama supermarket, in the city of São Paulo, a freezer cabinet contains several sculptures made with ground meat. The sculptures are small-scale reproductions of 'Two-Piece Reclining Figure: Points' by Henry Moore.
Diagram for AttackSince every critique of current conditions depends on the basic premise that reality might be different, how can such interpretive projections of perceptions be developed as part of an effective and affective engagement? Where and how can one nourish the capacity to see beyond what we are supposed to see?
System-Cinema: Ecstasy & ExerciseThe intimate sphere becomes a spectacle, a currency for exchange and an object of political management, carried out through techno-capitalism, biotechnologies, global media, social networks, and the citizens themselves.
Urban DataIt was increasingly evident that the ability to reveal or omit information was a major political bargaining chip. An indispensable skill to implement policies that shape an urban environment which emboldens the hegemonic structures of power, and caters to the logics of reproduction of capital.
Techno-political pacts in urban vectorsThe land, once a symbol of an intelligible present, increasingly sees its social function eroded by these successive displacements, and by the replacement of its use value by a monetary and political worth.
The order in urban informalityVolatile forms of spatial occupation proliferate in the gaps of the city. These forms evade the pragmatism of urban planning and of the authorized visions for the metropolis. They generate informal and illegal urban universes through provisional appropriations of (semi)public or private spaces
Historico-spatial matrixes of inequitySpace, from the territorial to the domestic scale, has been a central tool for this self-perpetuating system of classist and racist hierarchy, which guarantees the maintenance of a strong socio-spatial segregation.
Between Sign & CoordinateThis grid was one of the tools for a wider transculturation strategy, which acted through a direct intervention in space resulting in a series of violent infringements to the (social and individual) body’s tacit knowledge.
Amnesic Displacements, Times & SpacesBeing unable to act directly upon abstract dimensions, man shapes what is tangible, acting upon space as a means of controlling time. The city is not a fortuitous accumulation of disparate rhythms and velocities, but an environment that is structured in order to impose different temporalities upon distinct social constituencies.
Handmade DisruptionsThe inherent (self-)destruction of the works, performed in the public space, contradicts the fixity and didactic logic of monuments. It also challenges the illusory idea of permanence that they claim, putting it against the volatility, mutability and perishability of our collective spaces, buildings and beliefs.
Correspondence as Political TractionWhen reaching its final destination, the letter carries another dimension beyond the initial message. The limits of its paper sheets and envelope are now parallels and meridians of a new cartography of the city, that conveys the places, arrangements and hands through which the letter has gone through.
