Art & Mobility: Call for texts and artistic projects

For the publication of issue #55, the digital journal InterArtive will publish a special issue dedicated to diverse aspects of the current discussion about Art & Mobility. Theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject are invited to participate.

Artistic practices and creativity are directly and closely linked to mobility. A great part of the art and architecture that we know would not have existed if it weren’t for the urge to travel, to discover, the need to go beyond the limits – territorial and intellectual – of the known. To reflect on mobility today means to widen the perspective, to go beyond the concepts of travel, discovery and displacement; it calls for an analysis of the social, political, economic and cultural phenomena linked to it.

Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words: Format Guidelines (pdf)
The works and art projects will be published in the form of Virtual Gallery (images and short text): Format Guidelines (pdf)
Proposals should be submitted up until July 15, 2013, by mail at: [email protected]

A utopia é possível

por Daniela Labra (de Barcelona)

“O mundo está se preparando para uma metamorfose dos deuses. Abandonam-se os valores e arquétipos da cultura vigente e adotam-se novas formas de vida nascidas de outra visão do mundo”. Assim começava o manifesto da Instant City, uma das proposições do VII Congresso do ICSID – International Council of Societies of Industrial Design, ocorrido em outubro de 1971 na outrora idílica ilha de Ibiza – ou Evissa. O evento foi organizado pela Agrupació de Disseny Industrial del Foment de les Arts Decoratives (ADI/FAD), baseada em Barcelona, e teve um formato revolucionário, cujo objetivo era transformar um encontro profissional convencional em um acontecimento experimental e libertário, sem precedentes na Espanha – que amargava os últimos anos da obscura ditadura de Franco.

O congresso, que durou três dias, foi inspirado pela contracultura dos anos 1960 e fazia referência ao espírito livre da época, marcado por eventos artísticos, ativistas e políticos, que reuniam multidões de jovens nascidos no pós-guerra, desejosos de um mundo mais criativo, amoroso e pacífico.

Novo texto: Performar, Performando

O texto que segue foi publicado no livro Performance Presente Futuro Vol. 3. Rio de Janeiro. Automática/Oi Futuro, 2011.  Como o carnaval é a festa da performance espontânea, re-publico este texto do ano passado mas ainda em dia com o mundo da arte e da carne.

Performar, Performando

Performar é um verbo inventado, derivado da expressão em inglês performance, que significa desempenho. Um boa performance – ou bom desempenho, tem sido uma das maiores exigências da contemporaneidade. Na vida cotidiana, performar é um ato a ser cultivado diariamente, seja pelo executivo ou pela manicure, no exercício de suas profissões. Na arte, a performance é uma linguagem estabelecida na lista das práticas artísticas contemporâneas, que processa e ressignifica em ações ao vivo atos tão banais quanto amarrar os sapatos.

Em sociedade, a performance é percebida em situações de coletividade em que há um acontecimento ritualizado, como uma boda, uma festa junina ou uma final de campeonato estadual, e também em situações de alto apelo estético, como no caso de um espetáculo ou obra de arte. Como tema de estudo, a performance é passível de ser abrangida por muitos campos como a antropologia, o teatro, a dança, a sociologia, a comunicação social e as artes plásticas, entre outros, e é essa pluralidade que circunscreve a indefinição – e a liberdade – do termo e seu respectivo fazer.

Hurt Now, Feel Later: Noise, Body and Capital in the Japanese Bubble

Matthew Mullane

“The short-lived bubble economy at the end of the 1980s was a period of collective hysteria, a crazy time of frothy fortunes, pie-in-the-sky projects, and lavish living that suddenly evaporated. The impact of the crash of the stock market and land prices has had profound consequences, hammering banks, businesses, investors, borrowers, customers, and employees.”[1]

-Jeff Kingston on Japan’s “lost decade.”

“I cut my leg with a circular saw (…) I knew I had cut myself, but I didn’t feel any pain (…) It was some kind of extreme emotional state.”[2]

-Yamatsuka Eye describing Hanatarash’s second live performance in Osaka, 1984.

Echoing the “boom” of the Japanese economy in the 1980s was an explosive feedback caterwaul shot from underneath the country’s ballooning stock markets. A potent mixture of ecstatic improvisation, raw performance and psychedelic sound mangling, “noizu” (noise music) manifested as a violent and transgressive practice juxtaposed against Japan’s sleek hypermodern expansion. Acts such as Hanatarash and Hijokaidan emerged from the underground eager to destroy not only their ears but their bodies in each performance. Enticed by rumors of blood and auto-destruction, audiences grew in number and in determination to be assaulted by sound. They entered concert venues as war-zones: chainsaws, backhoes, shattered glass and industrial tools were accompaniment to blown-out guitar fuzz and distorted human shrieks. Artist profiles and mythologized tales of performances were disseminated in zines while cassette tapes documenting live recordings and bedroom studio experiments were bartered across oceans. These artifacts were quickly consumed by like-minded listeners in America, Europe and elsewhere, prompting the moniker “Japanoise.”

Desta vez, o  artesquema.com não entrou na lista…

1. VANDALOG
Top Art Blog of the Year
blog.vandalog.com

A perfect blog. Regular and interesting postings about street art across the world have created a genuine international community interested in this art form. To date there are just under 4000 followers, who are active in debating and posting and it is all very nicely brought together by its editor, RJ Rushmore. If you are looking to set up a blog to promote a specialist art form, then use this one as a model.

2. ARTS JOURNAL
Art News Blog of the Year
www.artsjournal.com

With its daily digest of the art news, seventeen highly qualified bloggers and a huge following, Arts Journal wins a top prize here. The sections are divided into clear sections such as: architecture, issues, art, music, culture, ideas, and the bloggers include leading figures in the academic and art world. The content is intelligent and the debate real. A guaranteed good read every day.

3. JONATHAN JONES ON ART
Art Blogger of the Year
www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/jonathanjonesblog

Jonathan’s short blogs fuel your brain and tell you exactly what you should go and see. We particularly liked his recent piece ‘The streets have stolen a march on modern art’. Working for The Guardian, his brief must be to feature events of ‘national interest’, but he manages to weave into this an eclectic mix of shows across the country in all sorts of places and not just the big names and brands. Other journos on the nationals should follow suit. We had many votes for Jonathan sent in to us, and the number of daily comments on his site shows that he a serious community of followers.

4. THE ART NEWSPAPER – FAIRS
Art Magazine Blog of the Year
www.theartnewspaper.com/fairs

If you did not received The Art Newspaper’s Daily bulletins from this year’s art fairs then you have missed out. The well-designed and up-to-the-minute newsletters drop into your inbox feeding you with news, opinion and gossip on the daily events at Frieze and Miami. For a moment in your morning you too are under canvas rubbing shoulders with oligarchs and celebrity collectors.

5. CATHEDRAL OF SHIT
Art Polemic Blog of the Year
cathedralofshit.wordpress.com

If you like a bitter rant against the art establishment with lots of expletives, then this blog is for you. It is very active, with plenty of anonymous researchers on the ground picking holes in government policy and exposing in-fighting, hypocrisy and nepotism in the art world. Examples are favourable reviews by national art critics of work by their personal friends. The design is pretty basic but the comment notable.

6. 1000 WORDSPHOTOGRAPHY
Photography Blog of the Year
1000wordsphotographymagazine.blogspot.com

This photography blogs highlights a sensational array of photographers, many of whom are relatively unknown. The blog, written mostly by Tim Clark, offers a mixture of well-written book and exhibition reviews, advice to photographers and news of fairs and competitions. The organisation also runs events in places such as Fez. Truly international.

7. SELF SELECTOR
New Art Blogger of the Year
selfselector.co.uk

Absolutely loads of people put forward Lorena Muñoz-Alonso for art blogger of the year. She clearly has a passionate group of followers. Lorena reviews exhibitions in such a way that you feel that you have been there. She asks enough questions about the art to challenge it, but she is not deliberately controversial or egotistical. She draws together exhibitions from public, commercial and alternative spaces, in a thematic way that makes you look at wider cultural issues.

8. ARMAGHOCLOCK
Artist’s Blog of the Year
armaghoclock.wordpress.com

There are so many good artists’ blogs that this is very difficult to choose. We were very careful not to select any artist that we represent or know as we don’t want to be outed in ‘Cathedral of Shit’. We have a preference here for the artist blogs that simply bring you behind the scenes as we are not artists ourselves. This blog was put forward by a subscriber and is an excellent example of an artist writing a journal on the development of a project. It brings you into the making of the work over the course of a year with clever use of images and sound. Unpretentious, clearly written and interesting.

9. ART RABBIT
Art Listings Blog of the Year
www.artrabbit.com

So many listings sites let us down because the searches don’t work or give you too much information or the content is out-of-date. This one doesn’t. It is beautifully designed and works perfectly – commendations to the graphic and software designers as well as the editors. The opinion pieces are nicely-written and the email blogs give you exactly the information you want on your selection of exhibitions opening or closing across the globe. A big thank you to Art Rabbit for bringing so many visitors into galleries and museums this year.

10. ART FAG CITY
Urban Art Blog of the Year
www.artfagcity.comCurator, lecturer and journalist Paddy Johnson goes around New York’s galleries and events and reports on art in the city with a fair amount of gossip and news too.

www.on-curating.org/

Esta publicação internacional sobre curadoria, produzida por alunos e professores de um curso de pós-graduação em curadoria de Zurich, mostra a nova tendência de discurso curatorial: o da curadoria como uma arte e formato autônomos, que se auto-discute, independentemente dos trabalhos de arte. Isto é, a prática curatorial hoje pensa a seu respeito num nicho à parte da história das obras de arte. É a curadoria pela e para a curadoria.

Ainda que vejo isso ser dificil de ter plenitude no Brasil – uma vez que a carência institucional não permite um campo de trabalho exclusivo para a prática curatorial – esta leitura é bem interessante. Abaixo segue a sinopse da publicação (que aliás, é de graça, feita num page maker salvo em PDF. Um grande estímulo para as revistas de arte independentes…)

An independent international web-journal which will focus on questions around curatorial practice and theory. Our interest as curators, lecturers, researchers and participants of programs on curating is to create a platform for presentation, discussion and research.
