ART FOR UBI (manifesto) | Book presentation in Venice

Talk performativa 14.12.33 ore 18:30 Libreria bruno Dorsoduro, 2729 Venezia

In collaborazione con Sale Docks, Art for UBI (manifesto): A cura di: Marco Baravalle, Emanuele Braga, Gabriella Riccio (Institute of Radical Imagination) – Intervengono: Federica Arcoraci, Chiara Buratti, Ilenia Caleo, Roberta Da Soller e IRI Institute of Radical Imagination

Art for UBI (manifesto): il libro è il primo volume della Collana IRI il cui scopo è quello di produrre conoscenza in comune e attorno al commoning situato all’intersezione tra arte, pedagogia e attivismo per una transizione verso il post capitalismo.

Art for UBI è un manifesto: il mondo dell’arte si posiziona a favore del reddito di cittadinanza universale e incondizionato, ponendo in primo piano le sue condizioni di vantaggio in termini economici, sociali ed ecologici. Il manifesto nasce come scrittura collettiva all’interno della School of Mutations, un progetto dell’Institute of Radical Imagination, una piattaforma internazionale di artisti, ricercatori, attivisti e curatori impegnati nella sperimentazione di pratiche artistiche post-capitaliste. Oltre all’introduzione delle curatrici, il volume raccoglie i contributi di diverse artiste, teoriche e attiviste che affrontano UBI nel panorama della precarietà generalizzata del lavoro artistico, della domanda di reddito nelle lotte transfemministe e decoloniali, delle pratiche mutualistiche nel scena artistica indipendente, il rapporto tra finanza, fabulazione e cripto filosofia.

Il volume include la drammaturgia di Una Renta, Muchos Mundos / One Income, Many Worlds, un’indagine performativa dell’IRI sul tema del reddito condotta a Madrid coinvolgendo un campione eterogeneo di residenti. La performance è stata allestita al Museo Reina Sofia nell’ambito del programma On The Precipice of Time. Practices of insurgent imagination. The Zapatista Forum nel Settembre del 2021.

Il libro è pubblicato da bruno

UNCONDITIONALLY. Life Income Love

What would the world be like if everyone had enough money to lead a worthy life? What if everyone got a universal and unconditional basic income?

Starting from the Art for UBI (manifesto), IRI proposes discussions on the role that art and the world of cultural production should have in the struggle for financial redistribution based on mutualism, on the methods of self-management of resources, on access to the means of production. and other solidarity practices.

With performance UNCONDITIONALLY. Life Income Love, people of different backgrounds and working conditions gather in a choreographed assembly to discuss the impact that a universal and unconditional income would have on their lives. Is the RBUI a “simple” financial measure or a fundamental tool for a radical alternative to the neoliberal reality in which we live? What would it be like if income and working hours weren’t linked? If you could say no to the blackmail of precariousness? End the race and gender asymmetries so common in today’s labor market? Detoxify the planet from ecologically dangerous jobs? Caring and helping each other in the face of the endless invitation to be competitive individuals? These are some of the questions that inspire public dialogue.

On this occasion, an IRI team worked to adapt Anna Rispoli’s proposal and produce a performance that takes up these lines through a series of interviews with a group of people who live and work in Milan and who are interpreters of this representation.

ART FOR UBI (manifesto) | Book launch

Art for UBI (manifesto): the book is the first volume of the IRI Series whose aim is to produce knowledge in common and around commoning situated at the intersection between art, pedagogy and activism for a transition towards post capitalism.

Art for UBI is a manifesto: the world of art positions itself in favor of universal and unconditional basic income, placing in the foreground its advantageous conditions in economic, social and ecological terms. The manifesto was born as collective writing within the School of Mutations, a project of the Institute of Radical Imagination, an international platform of artists, researchers, activists and curators engaged in the experimentation of post-capitalist artistic practices. In addition to the introduction by the curators, the volume contains the contributions of diverse artists, theorists and activists addressing UBI in the panorama of the generalized precariousness of artistic work, the demand for income in trans-feminist and decolonial struggles, mutualism practices in the independent art scene, the relationship between finance, fabulation and crypto philosophy.

The volume includes the dramaturgy of Una Renta, Muchos Mundos / One Income, Many Worlds, a performative investigation by IRI on the subject of income conducted in Madrid involving a diverse sample of residents.

INCONDIZIONATAMENTE Vita Reddito Amore

Come sarebbe il mondo se tutt* avessero sufficiente denaro per condurre una vita degna? Se tutt* ricevessero un reddito di base universale e incondizionato?

Partendo dall’Art for UBI (manifesto), l’IRI propone discussioni sul ruolo che l’arte e il mondo della produzione culturale dovrebbero avere nella lotta per la redistribuzione finanziaria basata sul mutualismo, sulle modalità di autogestione delle risorse, sull’accesso ai mezzi di produzione e altre pratiche solidali. 

Con la performance INCONDIZIONATAMENTE. Vita Reddito Amore,  persone di diversa estrazione e condizione lavorativa si riuniscono in un’assemblea coreografata per discutere dell’impatto che un reddito universale e incondizionato avrebbe sulle loro vite.  Il RBUI è una “semplice” misura finanziaria o uno strumento fondamentale per un’alternativa radicale alla realtà neoliberista in cui viviamo? Come sarebbe se guadagno e ore di lavoro non fossero legati? Se si potesse dire no al ricatto della precarietà? Porre fine alle asimmetrie di razza e genere così comuni nel mercato del lavoro di oggi? Disintossicare il pianeta da lavori ecologicamente pericolosi? Prendersi cura e aiutarsi a vicenda di fronte all’infinito invito a essere individui competitivi? Queste sono alcune delle domande che ispirano il dialogo pubblico.

In questa occasione, un team dell’IRI ha lavorato per adattare la proposta di Anna Rispoli e produrre una performance che riprende queste linee attraverso una serie di interviste ad un gruppo di persone che vivono e lavorano a Milano e che sono interpreti di questa rappresentazione.

La sua ricerca si concentra su modelli alternativi di produzione culturale, processi di trasformazione sociale in relazione alle tecnologie digitali, all’economia politica, ai diritti del lavoro e all’istituzione dei commons.

Anna Rispoli lavora al confine tra creazione artistica e attivismo, per esplorare in modo performativo la triangolazione tra uomo-città-identità e per testare possibili appropriazioni affettive del territorio pubblico. Le forme variano a seconda della necessità concettuale di ogni progetto.
