the performance introduces the Art for UBI #3 | assembly at 19:00

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 Sabatini Garden of the Museum, with “An income many worlds” 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.

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. 

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.

RES EXTENSA | Gabriella Riccio


within the framework of the residency Program DESVÍO by Planta Alta / Hablar en Arte, in collaboration with the Institute of Radical Imagination, with the hospitality of Museo en Red / Museum Reina Sofia – Thursday May 25th, 17:00-21:00


RES EXTENSA

Res Extensa is a project idea, a hybrid format combining the dimension of critical thinking with the somatic-sensory erotic experimental (experiential) dimension of physical thought; its theme / matter / object / starting point is the body in its relationship with other bodies.

Res Extensa in its experiential form is a participatory event that proposes a framework for experimentation and physical thinking. Res Extensa is proposed as a way to participate in a collective dialogue: enter a choreographic system that does not depend on physical ability, has no audience and only works through its action.
Using choreographic practices, Res Extensa invites participants to reflect from their bodies, to critical thinking, wanting to find the exception to the norm, to active listening, to sharing experiences and perspectives among them. Res Extensa moves from pleasure, it is a strategy to reestablish social bonds, re-eroticize other ways of inhabiting the world, reduce the distance and somatize in action. It does not accommodate, and it does not anesthetize, swimming against the current, it says no to the autonomy of aesthetics, it can only be experienced from the inside.

“I am interested in exploring how dance and choreography can contribute to an understanding of the political in our times. I am interested in Movement and Movements of ideas and of the individual or collective bodies. At its chore choreography moves around the relationship between body, space and time, and the possibilities of their reconfigurations. As a choreographer, my creative and investigative process develops through systems of rules and exceptions to the rule: in other words, I can say that the choreography creates systems and atmospheres where to observe the rupture point – deviations – that transforms them into other configurations. I am interested in this moment of transformation: the manifestation of the rupture, which always seems to me like a form of “withdrawal” to let something different appear, from a need, a desire, an imagination in a process that has something aleatory and necessary at the same time: allowing, welcoming, letting appear, being open to change, transformation, by letting other bodies affirm themselves in space and time. Therefore, as an activist committed with the movement for the commons, I also understand the gestures of reconfiguration of our way of being in the world as choreographic gestures that are manifested through a reconfiguration of bodies or space and tautologically of the law.”

Res Extensa dialogues with the theoretical elaboration of contemporary researchers and philosophers:
– Andreas Philipopoulos Mihailopoulos and his concepts of Spatial Justice, Normorama and Atmosphere;
– Andre Lepecki and his concept of Choreopolitics and Agency in the era of control.

NEW PARADOXES OF THE POLITICS OF CARE 

Both ethics of care and care practices have moved forward during this last crisis. One of the aims of this collective 3-sessions-iteration would be to analyse this new tension among groups whose “care practices” were active from before the Covid-19 turn and also with groups which have been rising during covid. 

We plan to start a conversation among collectives by asking: 

  • who cares and who is cared for? 
  • what needs of “socialising care” (redistributing) are we meeting now? 
  • which tools are we using or building new because of new needs? 
  • how have reconfigured the public language/space/media. 
  • how care is becoming a term of the power, governments, media? 
  • which conflict in our practices are we finding? 
  • which relations we found among our “autonomous” practices of care and the role of the public sector nowadays?
