BIENNALOCENE Se ‘l mare fosse de tocio is an event by the Goethe-Institut and Institut of Radical Imagination in the framework of Performing Architecture a series of events run by the Goethe-Institut as program partner of the German Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.
Corte delle Casette, Calle Cantiere (Giudecca Palanca), 19 May 2023 h 7.30 pm
BIENNALOCENE is a performative inquiry into the conditions of cultural work in Venice. The play was written starting from a series of interviews with a group of workers in the Venetian cultural industries. The interviewees themselves will stage their considerations on professional and existential precariousness, housing, income and the future of the lagoon city to the test of global warming.
The performance takes its cue from Art For UBI, a project by the Institute of Radical Imagination which started in 2021 with the collective writing of a manifesto in which the art world takes a position in favor of universal basic income and which resulted in the publication of the book “Art For UBI (Manifesto)”, (Bruno, 2021).
BIENNALOCENE è una ricerca militante sulle condizioni del lavoro culturale a Venezia e sull’ecosistema Biennale, grande evento che mobilita centinaia di lavoratori e lavoratrici ogni anno. A partire dalle interviste effettuate ad un gruppo diversificato di questi lavoratori e queste lavoratrici (precari, stagionali, freelancers, artisti, mediatori, tecnici, addetti alle pulizie e non solo) emerge una drammaturgia che da vita ad un’assemblea performativa animata dagli stessi intervistati e messa in scena nello spazio pubblico.
La performance prende spunto da Art For UBI, progetto dell’Institute of Radical Imagination iniziato nel 2021 con la scrittura collettiva di un manifesto in cui il mondo dell’arte prende posizione a favore del reddito di cittadinanza universale e che ha portato alla pubblicazione di il libro “Art For UBI (Manifesto)”, (Bruno, 2021).

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.
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.

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.
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.

Third public assembly organized by the ART for UBI (Manifesto) an initiative born within the framework of the activities of The School of Mutation by the Institute of Radical Imagination. The Pandemic of Covid19 has been correctly defined as a syndemic. The term clearly shows how pre-existing conditions of social, race, gender and environmental asymmetries, influenced the impact of Covid19, exposing to serious consequences poor and precarious workers, women and lgbtqia+ subjectivities, racialized and indigenous people and those living in areas more subjected to pollution and extractivism. In Europe (and elsewhere) thousands of billions of Euros are allocated to respond to the crisis. Unfortunately, at least from European perspective, it looks like the vast majority of these funds will go to the supply side, in the vain hope that financing private companies will have an overall positive impact on society. The result will be a further polarization of global richness, and the progressive impoverishment of millions of people. Contrary to this option, It is time to support the implementation of forms of universal, basic and unconditional income. We believe UBI is a struggle of primary importance in order to finally achieve a fair remuneration for the value freely extracted from our lives on a daily basis (for example through platform capitalism and through the still invisible care work performed mainly by women). We believe UBI will have a radical impact on social life, not only in terms of reducing poverty and precarity, but also freeing time and energies to build worlds where care, mutual aid and the commons become priorities.
Using the ART FOR UBI [Art for Universal Basic Income] Manifesto as its starting point, the IRI has been proposing discussions on the role that art and the world of cultural production should play in the fight for financial redistribution based on mutualism, methods of self-management of resources, access to the means of production and other solidarity practices. This activity begins in the Museum’s Sabatini Garden, with a “performative round table” based on the proposal of the artist Anna Rispoli, who regularly works on topics such as remuneration, income and the UBI (universal basic income), mixing performance, social research and conducting real experiments on how to share assets and financial resources.

Con el Manifiesto ART FOR UBI [Arte por la Renta Básica Universal] como punto de partida, el IRI viene proponiendo discusiones sobre el papel que el arte y el mundo de la producción cultural deben tener en la lucha por una redistribución financiera basada en el mutualismo, los métodos de autogestión de recursos, el acceso a los medios de producción y otras prácticas solidarias. Esta actividad comienza en el Jardín de Sabatini del Museo, con “Una renta muchos mundos” mesa redonda performativa basada en la propuesta de la artista Anna Rispoli, que trabaja regularmente temas como la remuneración, los ingresos y la RBU (renta básica universal), mezclando performance, investigación social y realizando experimentos reales sobre cómo compartir bienes y recursos financieros.
En la performance Una Renta, Muchos Mundos (One Income, Many worlds) un grupo diversificado de personas interpretará una asamblea ficticia en forma de discurso público coral donde se analiza el hipotético impacto en sus vidas de una renta universal, básica e incondicional en el contexto de la actual crisis pandémica. ¿Es la RBU una medida financiera “simple” o una herramienta fundamental para una alternativa radical a la realidad neoliberal que vivimos? ¿Qué pasa con ganar dinero no relacionado con el trabajo y las horas de trabajo? ¿Y la posibilidad de decir no al chantaje de la precariedad? ¿Qué hay de poner fin a las asimetrías de raza y género tan comunes en el mercado laboral actual? ¿Qué hay de desintoxicar el planeta de trabajos ecológicamente peligrosos? ¿Qué pasa con el cuidado y la ayuda mutua frente a la interminable invitación a ser individuos competitivos? Estas son algunas de las preguntas que inspiran el diálogo público La actuación será seguida por el panel Art For Ubi # 3 en el Museo Reina Sofía.
En esta ocasión, un equipo del IRI ha trabajado para adaptar la propuesta de Rispoli y realizar una dramaturgia que retome estas líneas a partir del diálogo con un grupo de personas que viven y trabajan en España, y que han participado en una serie de entrevistas que han dado lugar a la dramaturgia de esta performance. Esta fase de investigación, se enmarca dentro del Programa Abierto de DESVÍO una herramienta de diálogo y trabajo colectivo impulsada por hablarenarte / Planta Alta que se propone accionar y afectar nuestro contexto inmediato.

In the performance Una Renta, Muchos Mundos (One Income, Many worlds) a diversified group of people will perform a fictional assembly in the form of a public coral speech, where the hypothetical impact on their lives of a universal, basic and unconditional income is analyzed on the background of the current pandemic crisis. Is UBI a “simple” financial measure, or is it an essential tool for a radical alternative to the neoliberal reality we are experiencing? What about earning money unrelated to jobs and working hours? What about the possibility to say no to the blackmail of precarity? What about putting and end to race and gender asymmetries so common in today’s labor market? What about detoxing the planet from ecologically dangerous jobs? What about care and mutual aid in front of the endless invitation to be competitive individuals? These are some or the questions inspiring the public dialogue.The performance will be followed by the panel Art For Ubi #3 at the Museum Reina Sofia.
On this occasion, an IRI team has worked to adapt Rispoli’s proposal and carry out a dramaturgy that takes up these lines from dialogue with a group of people who live and work in Spain, and who have participated in a series of interviews that have given rise to the dramaturgy of this performance. This research phase is part of the DESVÍO Open Program, a tool for dialogue and collective work promoted by hablarenarte / Planta Alta that aims to actuate and affect our immediate context.

How would we organise our lives if we didn’t have to earn a living? Indeed, what would we do if our livelihood was secured? In 2021, the Wiener Festwochen will once again open with a discursive debate; artist and activist Anna Rispoli is elaborating a choral speech on unconditional basic income. It is an appeal to reflect on distributive justice, precarity and sustainability. Based on interviews with Viennese citizens and against the backdrop of a work environment thrown even more out of sync by a virus, Income. The unconditional speech sees our present-day utopia as tomorrow’s realities. How would unconditional basic income redesign our lives, our towns and cities, society, and the world as a whole? Rispoli’s interventionist art practices aim to change the public space and are founded on the principle of affective mutual contamination. When words uttered by others pass through our own mouths, a form of non-monetary exchange is able to occur. An economy like we have never seen before!
Wie würden wir unser Leben organisieren, wenn wir nicht von Erwerbstätigkeit abhängig wären? Wenn für unsere Lebenserhaltung gesorgt wäre – was würden wir tun? 2021 eröffnen die Wiener Festwochen erneut mit einer diskursiven Debatte; die Künstlerin und Aktivistin Anna Rispoli gestaltet eine chorische Rede zum bedingungslosen Grundeinkommen. Ein Appell, über Verteilungsgerechtigkeit, Prekarität und Nachhaltigkeit nachzudenken. Basierend auf Interviews mit Wiener*innen und vor dem Hintergrund einer durch ein Virus erst recht aus dem Lot geratenen Arbeitswelt begreift das leidenschaftliche Plädoyer die Utopien von heute als die Realitäten von morgen. Wie würde ein bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen das Leben neu gestalten, die Stadt, die Gesellschaft, die ganze Welt? Rispolis interventionistische Kunstpraktiken zielen auf Veränderung des öffentlichen Raums und fußen auf dem Prinzip der gegenseitigen affektiven Ansteckung. Wenn die Worte anderer durch den eigenen Mund wandern, kann eine Form von nichtmonetärem Austausch geschehen. Eine Ökonomie wie noch nie!
1/ Universal and Unconditional Basic Income is the best measure for the arts and cultural sector. Art workers claim a basic income, not for themselves, but for everyone.
2/ Do not call UBI any measures that do not equal a living wage: UBI has to be above the poverty threshold. To eliminate poverty, UBI must correspond to a region’s minimum wage.
3/ UBI frees up time, liberating us from the blackmail of precarious labor and from exploitative working conditions.
4/ UBI is given unconditionally and without caveats, regardless of social status, job performance, or ability. It goes against the meritocratic falsehoods that cover for class privilege.
5/ UBI is not a social safety net, nor is it welfare unemployment reform. It is the minimal recognition of the invisible labor that is essential to the reproduction of life, largely unacknowledged but essential, as society’s growing need for care proves.
6/ UBI states that waged labor is no longer the sole means for wealth redistribution. Time and time again, this model proves unsustainable.Wage is just another name for exploitation of workers, who always earn less than they give.
7/ Trans-feminist and decolonizing perspectives teach us to say NO to all the invisible and extractive modes of exploitation, especially within the precarious working conditions created by the art market.
8/ UBI affirms the right to intermittence, privacy and autonomy, the right to stay off-line and not to be available 24/7.
9/ UBI rejects the pyramid scheme of grants and of the nonprofit industrial complex, redistributing wealth equally and without unnecessary bureaucratic burdens. Bureaucracy is the vampire of art workers’ energies and time turning them into managers of themselves.
10/ By demanding UBI, art workers do not defend a guild or a category and depreciate the role that class and privilege play in current perceptions of art. UBI is universal because it is for everyone and makes creative agency available to everyone.
11/ Art’s health is directly connected to a healthy social fabric. To claim for UBI, being grounded in the ethics of mutual care, is art workers’ most powerful gesture of care towards society.
12/ Because UBI disrupts the logic of overproduction, it frees us from the current modes of capital production that are exploiting the planet. UBI is a cosmogenetic technique and a means to achieve climate justice.
13/ Where to find the money for the UBI? In and of itself UBI questions the actual tax systems in Europe and elsewhere. UBI empowers us to reimagine financial transactions, the extractivism of digital platforms, liquidity, and debt. No public service should be cut in order to finance UBI.
14/ UBI inspires many art collectives and communities to test various tools for more equal redistribution of resources and wealth. From self-managed mutual aid systems based on collettivising incomes, to solutions temporarily freeing cognitive workers from public and private constraints. We aim to join them.
