How can we reconfigure the art institution from the transformative pedagogic practices that inhabit it?

In the year 2050, a state of worldwide climate emergency has been declared and the various international organisations are looking for solutions to reduce the impact of human activity on the planet as much as possible. In its latest report, the UN announced that the cultural model of museums and art centres is completely unsustainable due to the quantity of ecological, material and energy resources needed to maintain it. Given the state of emergency, the report decreed the closure of all museums and art centres within a period of 12 months.

A series of Crisis Cabinets (of political fictions) was called in order to tackle the situation and to study a series of measures to take within the stipulated deadline. Given the fragility of many of the contents of said institutions, the first Crisis Cabinets will be dedicated to “The Museum is a School”, (borrowing the title from Luis Camnitzer’s work). This Crisis Cabinet will transform museums and art centres into “schools” to learn, test, rehearse, analyse, produce, post-produce, etc.T

he Museum is a School is the title of a seminar divided over five sessions conceived to rethink the relationship of cultural institutions and critical / transformative pedagogic practices. Each session will begin with a Crisis Cabinet of political fictions and will then continue with a working group and a debate on the theme The Museum is a School. These inter-institutional encounters, to be held over the 2015/2016 academic year, will enable a series of art institutions and pedagogic collectives to mark out common ground based around the following goals:

1)   Broaden the radius of reflection on institutional policies and education through the exercise of radical political fiction. 
2)   Agree on shared goals, working methodologies, projects, urgencies and challenges.
3)   Foster the creation of an emotional community among the participating agents and institutions and a space of intensive care in which collaborative links may be forged.
4)   Define working strategies between collectives and institutions with the purpose of effectively transforming the art institutions that we inhabit and that inhabit us.

Venus:

1. Visual depiction of the goddess Venus.
2. A prehistoric statuette of a female figure usually carved in stone, ivory or bone.
3. An exceptionally beautiful woman.
4. (obsolete) Physical desire, sexual appetite.

How many images of Venus can you recall? What would you do if you were one of them? How can the position of Venus be occupied from a feminist and critical perspective, breaking with the dichotomy between subject and object? Is it possible to enact this re-appropriation through a process of working with performance? Can this feminist re-appropriation be used to articulate other non-patriarchal, non-racist and non-heteronormative art histories? How can we re-appropriate the works of Manet, Gaugin, Velázquez, Picasso and Yves Klein, to name just a few of those classic and contemporary geniuses?

Taking Venus as a paradigmatic figure of the position assigned to women within the hegemonic narrative of art history, the workshop Venus. Feminist Remakes proposes, through a process of working with performance, to re-appropriate manifold artworks, both classic and contemporary, which have gone towards cementing the mythology of the artist as genius, and helped to structure the two opposing positions of subject and object. Viewing the remake as a political strategy of subversion and at once as a possibility of rewriting, we will undertake various feminist remakes in which we will occupy, displace and go beyond the multiple Venuses that populate the history of art.

Colektivof is a duo comprised of Eva Garrido and Yera Moreno, who have been working together since 2007 on various projects which address, from the optic of feminism, the relationship that bodies establish with time and space, positing new ways of experimenting with the everyday that subvert normative reality. These works are materialized in varying formats including performances, workshops, photographic archives, writing, videos and research projects: http://colektivof.com/

Aimed at artists, cultural producers, performers, educators, fine art and art history students 

Enrolment free until 30 May. Download the enrolment form, fill it in and return it to actividades.ca2m@madrid.org Participation in the workshop will be confirmed on 1 June

Project selected in the call organised by MAV for inclusion in the Women’s Views Biennial 2016, for its feminist content in consonance with good practices, social return and the recovery of feminine memory.

he performance Quarter of an Hour of Metaphysical Culture is a presentation of physical training created from a poem by the same name by the Romanian poet Ghérasim Luca. The goal is to situate the metaphysical ideas contained within the poem (life, death, emptiness, anxiety, ideas, shivers), without any drama, based on a repetition of physical and sound exercises. The poet provides the “meta” and the performers the “physical”.

This performance is the first piece in a wider collection within the project La Conquista de lo Inútil (The Conquest of the Useless), which examines what we normally consider as unimportant, ineffective or unproductive. https://vimeo.com/user12478543/

Oscar Gómez Mata was born in San Sebastian, and lives and works in Geneva. He is an actor, director, and also playwright and scenographer, who started out working in the theatre in Spain in 1987. He was a cofounder of the Legaleón-T company, with whom he created shows until 1996. In Geneva in 1997, he founded the L’Alakran company where he has conceived, written and directed various shows.

Admission free while places last

The performance is part of El Lugar Sin Límites, a project exploring two common ideas: the idea of home and the idea of story. Set in conflict within the space of the performance, the aim is to make them clash together, producing sounds, sparks and unexpected encounters. For this purpose, artists were invited to provide voices, bodies and experiences to this ongoing reflection.

This year the idea is to observe the construction of a place to inhabit, a place to sit, observe, speak and listen. To be able to make a home together, to guide us through a territory that we decide together, to build a space for meeting and, in addition, to still believe in the possibility of continuing to tell our story to one another.

The programme is accompanied by places for reflection and encounter for artists and between artists and the audience.

He also has won a Goya for Best Photography in 2005 for his work in Iberia, by Carlos Saura. “CA2M, 10 años en Móstoles” is his first collaboration with the Regional Government of Madrid.

During this 21-hour theoretical course, key aspects of contemporary art will be openly discussed in order to understand and interpret contemporary art: from the death of the author and the crisis of the subject to the end of meta-narratives and the emergence of art as critical thinking.

While we raise the main existing issues in current art, we will analyze the possibility of using images as useful resources to be used in the classroom (and not only in Art History classes): the image is built and proposed by the artist as an artifact or a machine which creates discourses.

Through 7 sessions of 3 hours, professionals of art from different creative fields (museums, artistic practices, scholars) will deal with different subjects.

Sessions will be divided into two parts: a theoretical discussion based on reading materials followed by practical cases and exercises of images analysis.

Attendees will receive a 2-credit certificate issued by Consejería de Educación de la Comunidad de Madrid.

By David Cortés, Marta de Gonzalo and Pablo Martínez.

The course will take place at IES Prado Santo Domingo in Alcorcón.
