Iridescent Skins: performing the blending towards mixed dramaturgies

Meeting with Francesca Corona, Selamawit Biruk, Muna Mussie, Emilia Verginelli and lawyer Silvia Calderoni, member of the association Progetto Diritti, specialised in immigration law. Coordinated by Anna Serlenga.

A comparison between Italian companies characterised by “cultural cross-fertilisation”: artists who made the encounter with otherness the heart of their narrative and made mixture the amalgam of their aesthetics. These artistic paths offer us a snapshot of our socio-political present, challenging the rhetoric of nationalist simplification.

Language: Italian with simultaneous translation into English.

Wintering: how to resist the glaciation of Fus (and other dinosaurs)

A meeting with all the groups of the Begin Anywhere section coordinated by Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande, who will discuss – with different forms and poetic/political modalities – the question: what does it mean to undertake independent paths of creation outside the fences today? We are aware that this day will be but a spark in a dark time, but it is like a small time-capsule: a platform to launch common practices that we will try to extend to other realities of the Italian and foreign scene.

Language: Italian with simultaneous translation into English.

Friday 16 July 3.30pm –  Biblioteca Comunale Antonio Baldini
–biofiction– a space for mermaids witches and eggs

Curated by Antonia Anna Ferrante and Ilenia Caleo together with Maddalena Fragnito, Beatrice Busi, Federica Timeto and others.

A space for sharing traces – between theoretical research and transfeminist activism – on the imagination of the body / bodies {human, non-human, inanimate}, fiction and biologies. A collection of 11 objects – beings, experiences, images, artistic practices, imaginations – each told in a slot lasting six and a half minutes. Something to compose and leave to freely ferment. The words we will be composting are: natureculture ° bio-hacking ° co-design of care ° protocols ° knowledge of the body ° fiction and biologies ° anti-speciesist technologies ° DIY/DIT ° toxic bodies ° genealogies of genres ° cyberwitches&bio-witches.

Language: Italian with simultaneous translation into English.
