Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto
May 13 - 20, 2023
︎︎︎ Organised by UNIDEE Residency Programs and Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto
UNIDEE Residency Programs and Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto residency module in the programme Neither on Land not at Sea. Meeting by the Mediterranean Im/Possible, curated by UNIDEE Visiting Curator Chiara Cartuccia.
Neither on Land nor at Sea invites to meander around unreducible complications and on shifting grounds, to explore together ways in which geography is historically, socially, and politically produced. The project pluralises Mediterranean concepts/spaces as sites of worldmaking and experimentation in communal living. To do so, it adopts un-grounded geographies and colliding historicities as meeting places, in which to congregate to elaborate on the role played by situated practices and shared processes in the promotion of social transformations, towards epistemic justice.
G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation Research Residency
October 15-22, 2022
The first edition of the G&A Mamidakis Foundation Research Residency Program, which took place between 15-22 October, 2022, in Agios Nikolaos, Crete, was a week-long intensive residency promoting creative interaction among cultural practitioners. It brought together nine professionals from the fields of fine art, performance, curating, writing, research, cultural production, and graphic design, who explored recent research around the themes of Care/Eudaimonia, and how we can all work together to redefine care, resulting in a more caring world. The residency program was shaped around discussions and workshops organised by invited lecturers, during which the participants debated about critical current issues including the crisis of social care and healthcare in Greece and abroad, the gradual shrinking of the welfare state, the refugee crisis, the pandemic, and the environmental crisis, as well as the secondary traumas of carers, the lack of (their) care, and ‘care washing’.
Residents: Maita Chatziioanidou, Christos Chrysanthopoulos, Ariana Kalliga, Dina Ntziora, Foivos Oikonomidis, Eleni Riga, Georgia Sagri, Mariana Stefanitsi, Nikolas Vamvouklis
