Publishing Practices. Gathering Collectives # 1: Casa Kuà and Sickness Affinity Group

18-19 December 2021

Contested Landscapes is dedicated to the often neglected rural space, its landscapes and its producers. Rural production acts in the complex fabric of human and non-human life, between state regulations and regional as well as global market structures. Issues of industrialization, biodiversity, climate change and sustainability shape everyday agricultural life. To this end, the event seeks an exchange between artists, rural producers, urbanists and city dwellers, since the city is hardly thinkable without rural production.

Publishing Practices

Publishing Practices is a yearly program committed to an expanded idea of publishing not confined to the production and dissemination of printed matters but open to a multi-sensorial reflection on other ways to know and exist. 

How can we dismantle the way we know the world? What if the iterative power of knowledge as affirmed and reinforced by patriarchal, colonial and capitalist paradigms is replaced by publishing virtuality, its capacity to re-imagine the wor(l)d as “contingency and possibility” rather than “necessity and determinacy” (Denise Ferreira da Silva)? In which ways can publishing be activated as the ground for collective solidarity and inseparability, and participate in the undoing of fixed marginalities and boundaries?

In Search of Archives

23-26.01.2019

In Search of Archives inquires into contemporary notions and practices of the archive in postcolonial constellations. While the state of archives in former colonial settings is continuously marked by limited access, dispersed documents and repressed histories, contemporary art and research have been opening various ways of appropriating, (re)collecting and rendering visible the diverse traces and memories, creating new meanings of the past for the present and the future.

That relation between us, or among us follows bodies on the move, their action, retracing displacements and transitions, but also those passages from one place to another constituted by acts of translation. The programme recovers some of those moments recorded by the camera: it examines the process of an “experimental archaeology of the present”; it exposes diachronies, the shifts between different border regimes, the continuities of power and the subjectivities that resist it. The programme reconstructs transnational counter-histories as they emerge from the productions and practices of “minor”, decolonial, accented cinemas: they oppose the fiction of an ever-present migration emergency – an “emergency” produced and perpetuated by European policies that make people illegal, by borderisation and spectacularisation mechanisms, and which goes from one “crisis” to the next.
