Location / Lugar: Plaza de Juan Goytisolo Date / Fecha: September 17, 18:30 Language / Idioma Spanish/Español Duration / Duración: approx. 30 min.
The performance is an output of two different but somehow connected projects: the ART FOR UBI Manifesto, a collective text written starting from a public dialogue between art operators, scholars and activists, and Income. The Unconditional speech, a work by artist and director Anna Rispoli.A diversified group of people will perform a choral 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.Continue reading “UNA RENTA, MUCHOS MUNDOS | performance”
