NEXES CITY / INTERSUBJECTIVE CONNECTIONS
RESEARCH AND ARTISTIC EXPERIMENTATION PROJECTS
IDENSITAT + LA ESCOCESA
Nexes Ciutat is an Idensitat project together with La Escocesa that, based upon the theme of “Intersubjective Connections'' and immersed within a context of social distancing, suggests a line of artistic research to explore the transformations and new imaginaries that affect concepts which underpin contemporary social space; concepts such as connections, linkages, relationships, interactions, or others such as collective creation, rights to the city and to culture, the overlapping of public and common spaces, concepts that appeal to the conception of a "we", and the construction of intersubjective relationships.
When relational space is generated from domestic space, and through the virtualisation of relationships, the idea of proximity changes, and distances alter their meaning, the house may be converted into public space, and public space disappears. Starting from this premise of the domestic sphere and its relationship with the public sphere, we are interested in opening up an investigation which aims to rethink the role of art and culture in the construction of spaces of intersubjectivity that affect the construction of social space.
The module within this open call is the result of the collaboration between Idensitat and La Escocesa (Research Grants and Artistic Experimentation 2021). This Module B may be organised budgetarily as the applicant wishes, with a maximum of € 1500 which may be added to the other modules requested.
Within the framework of this module, two (2) artistic research projects will be selected that attempt to activate processes that involve people or groups from the city of Barcelona, always within the procedural logic indicated in the open call, and taking into account the current situation that makes it difficult to work in collective spaces. The aim is to encourage artistic practices that combine active public involvement in processes of collective creation, contextualised research within the city, shared learning, knowledge exchange, and socialisation of processes and results. Proposals will have the full assistance of the Idensitat team.
