La pratica del comune nella metropoli della crisi.
Gentrificazione, colonialismi, conflitti, arti e architetture.

L’idea è di analizzare concetto di metropoli nel contesto mutato della crisi globale.
I relatori sono stati scelti per presentare diversi punti di vista. Dal ruolo dell’organizzazione dello spazio e dell’architettura di Israele nei territori palestinesi, all’utilizzo dell’arte nel grembo delle città globali dove è stato messo in pratica il dispositivo della Creative-City.
Il Focus sarà dunque sull’architettura, l’arte e la pianificazione come strumenti utilizzati all’interno di un campo di forze. Questo campo è estremamente differenziato: da vere e proprie zone di guerra, fino ad uno spazio in cui la creatività è catturata come vettore economico e sociale per lo sviluppo urbano.

Una collaborazione tra S.a.L.E. Docks e Institut Ramon Llull in occasione di “180°”, mostra personale di Mabel Palacin. Padiglione della Catalogna e delle Isole Baleari alla 54 Biennale di Arti Visive di Venezia.

Speakers:

Decolonizing Architecture: (www.decolonizing.ps)
Our project (started in 2007 and based in Bethlem – Palestine) uses architecture to articulate the spatial dimension of a process of decolonization. Recognizing that Israeli colonies and military bases are amongst the most excruciating instruments of domination, the project assumes that a viable approach to the issue of their appropriation is to be found not only in the professional language of architecture and planning but rather in inaugurating an “arena of speculation” that incorporates varied cultural and political perspectives through the participation of a multiplicity of individuals and organizations.

Anthony Iles: (www.metamute.org)
Author of the book “No Room to Move Radical Art and the Regenerate City; with Josephine Berry slater; Mute publishing; 2010). As the Creative City model for urban regeneration founders on the rocks of the recession, and the New Labour public art commissioning frenzy it triggered recedes, Anthony Iles and Josephine Berry Slater take stock of an era of highly instrumentalised public art making.
Focusing on artists and consultants who have engaged critically with the exclusionary politics of urban regeneration, their analysis locates such practice within a schematic history of urban development’s neoliberal mode.
Breaking down into a report and a collection of interviews, this investigation consistently focuses on the forms and, indeed, possibility of critical public art within a regime that fetishes ‘creativity’ whilst systematically destroying its preconditions in its pursuit of capital accumulation. How, they ask, is critical art shaped by its interaction with this aspect of biopolitical governance?

Marti Peran: (www.martiperan.net)

He has collaborated with many contemporary art books and catalogues. He was a member of the editorial board of “Transversal” (1996-2002). Member of the editors team of “Roulotte”, he is also a collaborator in newspapers and art magazines (Exit Express, Artforum International).
He has imparted different workshops on art criticism and curatorial practices in different institutions. He has lectured in different museums and universities (MACBA,Barcelona; MNCARS,Madrid;USP,Sao Paulo; Trienale,Milano; CCEBA,Buenos Aires; Townhouse,Cairo; Contemporary Art Center; Larissa; NYU, New York; Art Beijing; Jeu de Paume,Paris;…)

S.a.L.E. Docks, Dorsoduro 265, Venezia

The Practice of the Commonwealth in the Metropolis of the Crisis
Gentrification, Colonialisms, Conflicts, Arts and Architectures.

The point is to analyse the concept of the city within the context of the global crisis.
The invited people have been chosen to highlight different points of view. From the role of the organisation
of the space and of Israeli architecture within Palestine to the postion of art in the context of the global
cities where the device of the creative city was put to practice.
So the focus will be on architecture, art and urban planning as instruments employed in a field of forces.
This field can vary from actual war zones to a space in which creativity is captured as a capitalistic vector for
the socio-economical urban development.

A collaboration between S.a.L.E. Docks and the Institut Ramon Llull on the occasion of “180” the solo
exhibition of Mabel Palacin for the Pavilion of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands at the 54 Venice Biennale
of Visual Arts.
