— AN ARGUMENT RATHER THAN AN OBJECT —  WE CREATE AD-HOC INTERVENTIONS THAT CELEBRATE THE POSSIBILITIES OF APPROPRIATING SPACE. WE USE AN ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE THAT IS ACCESSIBLE AND CAN BE IMPLEMENTED WITHOUT A GREAT DEAL OF PLANNING AND ADMINISTRATIVE EFFORT. THIS APPROACH AIMS TO MAKE PARTICIPATION EASY AND BREAK DOWN BOUNDARIES. WE ORGANIZE WORKSHOPS, CONCERTS AND PERFORMANCES IN UNUSUAL PLACES WITH A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT ACTORS. WE USE INFLATABLE INSTALLATIONS AS A WAY OF ENGAGING A DISCUSSION ABOUT CURATORIAL PRACTICE, OPPORTUNISTIC URBANISM AND THE ROLE OF ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS AS PLACE-MAKERS AND PROVOCATEURS.

AERO SCREEN


Agora & insurgencias.net present during Berlin Art Week a two-day public program facilitating a workshops, a video mapping artwork, a theatre screening, a fermentation bar and a panel discussion to share artist-led research projects from Latin American artists in Berlin dealing with environmental activism.

Contributing artists: Gabriel Vallecillo (Honduras), Julia Mensch (Argentina) and Michelle-Marie Letelier (Chile), in conversation with Paz Guevara (Chile). As remote guests: YAMA Theater Collective (joining from Ecuador), Paola Ospina (joining from Colombia). As workshop facilitators: GA Estudio (Tomás García de la Huerta & Xaviera Gleixner, Chile).

With the desire to open spaces of possibility, the practices highlighted by this event are works-in-progress that research, resist and formulate new questions around the hegemonic extractive logics of consumption and control. Divided in 4 subtopics: Extra(a)ctivism / Alternative Narratives / Artistic Operations / Ethics, “Ecologies of Protest” offers an opportunity to give visibility to a vast but fragile cartography of social concerns which often remain at the periphery of our attention, transversed by the consequences of a neo-liberal economic model brought by colonial history.

The architecture of this encounter is embraced by “The Screen Air Pavilion”, a creation by GA Estudio (Chile) in collaboration with Popticum Collective (Berlin), specially designed to host Agor a Collective at Ufer Studios.









curated by Paz Ponce (Founder and director of insurgencias.net) and produced by Agora Collective e.V. in collaboration with ZK/U - Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik as project partners. The program is Funded by Berlin Senate for Culture and Europe in the frame of the Fellowship-program "Weltoffenes Berlin" and hosted by Uferstudios Für Zeitgenössischen Tanz.
