Future worlds. Alternate realities. Parallel universes. Far off planets. These are just some of the places we may discover in Queer Environmental Worlds, which is the theme for a residency at Anima Casa Rural.

Queering environmental futures means busting down the divisions between utopia and dystopia and asking: what can queering the future bring to the environmental crises of the current moment? As queers we already occupy liminal bodies, have activist histories, have lived with and through toxicity, and thus bring a unique perspective to environmental catastrophe. Queering the future is about refiguring the paradigms of colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and heteronormativity that have brought us to this environmentally precipitous moment.

Anima Casa Rural, because it creates ecological alternatives, is an ideal location for imagining environmentally sustainability. Queer Environmental Worlds turns to tropes of science fiction where we can render the familiar unfamiliar and see it anew. We like to imagine the future as environmentalist and fuelled by an spirit of radical ethical experimentalism.

Rethinking The Table is a two week residency program that seeks to reconceptualize the communal dining table. Challenging both the physical parameters of the table and the symbolic layers of meaning manifest in communal eating. The residency will utilize a series of workshops, excursions, group discussions, interventions & rituals, as well as each participant’s personal creative practices to build collectively towards a final group dinner as exhibition with local guests.

We conceive of the table and the act of eating together as an entry point into a myriad of politically and socially charged conversations We seek to use this simple act as a lens through which we can examine, research, deconstruct and ultimately rethink our relationship to food, eating and the each other.

Animacasa offers a unique opportunity to explore these conversations. Situated in rural Jalisco state outside of Guadalajara, the residency takes place in a farm to table permaculture setting with vegetable gardens, food forests,  animals and mountainous horizons.

This artist residency aims to the creation of projects that aim to work through the development and process of creativity within the art work highlighting not only the values of cultural identity, if not as their own potential of deconstructing and criticizing homogenize discurse. Artist would look into the capacity of creating conflict in those already created identities, normalized in spread through out the different social/political cultural mechanism. We will debate from literature, film and activities.

Within this frame, our focus will be to understand the dialogue that becomes from the art piece itself, the ideas of the participants and the artistic traditions. Talking through collective identities and individual identities in art practice, the artist will analyze images and the subject-persona, blending their own memory to those images of history.
