Eligibility:

A never ending story of what we have lost with the pasage of time (life)

Identity and exploration of the artists

Document and curate the artist’s lifeline  and creation all the while asking the question: What have you lost?

Since I was little I have wondered where do things go and where are we going?

As individuals and as society we organize and try to keep and collect as much as we can, but there are many times that we lose track. “We lose things, thoughts, people”

We know all those things we just need to dig to ourselves (in this case the artist self ) and expose.

And inventory can trace a lifeline too, The past, the present and the future. An artist can explore their past or just try to explain their future.

The Land is a Library

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The land and its animal inhabitants have always been integral to the creation of books: parchment produced from the skin of calves, tree pulp for paper, vegetable charcoal into ink... If one were to make books localized materially and conceptually around Anima Casa, what might that look like? How can a kiln, burning donkey shit, produce a book? Are the black embers floating through the sunset from nearby burning sugar kane just a series of punctuation marks waiting to find their pages? Are the fish sucking up algae in the swimming pool acting as

editors of some acquatome? How does environment allow us to inhabit the space between languages? What is learned from skinning rabbits? What space is made by pulling air, sand, and water into the pages of a book? What does it mean to create books that blur and bridge geographies; books that promise an undoing of languages; books that offer an experience? These and many other questions will shape the residency until we prove The Land is a Library.

Queer Environmental Worlds 2

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Future worlds. Alternate realities. Parallel universes. Far off planets. These are just some of the places we may discover in Queer Environmental Futures, which is the theme for this residency.

Queering environmental futures will bust down the divisions between utopia and dystopia. We already occupy liminal bodies, have activist histories, have lived with and through toxicity. What can queering the future bring to the current environmental crises? If we dismantle the colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and hetero and cis normativity that have brought us to this environmentally precipitous moment, what can we create in their place? 

Seeking artists and collaborators working in any medium, Queer Environmental Futures will turn to tropes of science fiction where we can render the familiar unfamiliar and see it anew. We imagine environmentalist futures fuelled by collective spirits of radical ethical experimentalism.

Site & Cycle

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

This residency is about  combining hands-on Super 8 and 16mm filmmaking instruction with geographical and historical workshops, curated screenings and public programming, Film for Artists – Site + Cycle is a residency program that endeavors filmmaking practices that engage with the materiality of filmmaking as it intersects with issues of land use and site specificity.

Site + Cycle project at Anima Casa Rural is an iteration of our on-going project, which teaches hand-processing and decay techniques on Super 8 film in conjunction with teachings about the landscape, history, and cultural memory of Jalisco. 

We strive to ground our residency with a focus on site-specificity and land issues. We believe that capturing or creating photochemical images cannot be separated from the spaces and places in which this image-making takes place. Through our pedagogical frameworks and programming, Site + Cycle aims to combine filmmaking with a geolocational awareness of history, memory, and the potential for decolonization.

Call for Proposals

Country:

Eligibility:

We are currently seeking proposals from curators and cultural organizers to program a two-week residency at Anima Casa Rural. As well as leading the residency, curators will have a chance to present their programme and curatorial practice on a panel discussion at the Escuela de Artes de la Secretaría de Cultura de Jalisco (depending on school’s program and availability) in the city of Guadalajara.  Programmers will be responsible for selecting and cultivating artists for their programme, and are expected to assist ANIMA staff in promotion and marketing of their programmed residency.
As remuneration ANIMA will cover the costs of food (three meals a day) and lodging for the visiting curator, as well as travel from and to the airport. The curator is responsible for their own airfare, and Anima is happy to assist in helping them source funds with an invitation letter.
