Ambactia Memoria

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Ambactia Memoria is a group exhibition to be presented at SomoS Art House Berlin between March 2-13 2021, coinciding with the Berlin Travel Festival as an alternative critical venue. Applications are welcome that deconstruct the idea of Hispanicness and/or collectively imagine its transformation. Ambactia Memoria offers artists, critics and activists an open framework to articulate non-normative artistic positions and peripheral perspectives regarding tradition, memory and identities positioned in relation to the Hispanic. 

Curated by Vanesa Peña Alarcón (ES), the exhibition takes as a starting point an institutional critique of the global stereotypical representation of the Hispanic by international diplomatic organizations and cultural institutes. In Peña’s view, this representation of the Hispanic or the concept of Hispanicness, is a form of patronization of people’s history, collective memory and subjectivities, a one-sided perspective that doesn’t allow for a real inclusion of transculturalism.

Contributions may reflect on:

- The international (re)presentation of so-called “Spanish-speaking cultures” and the politics of the Hispanic gaze. Can the Hispanx speak? 

- The rise of national cultural identities vs “Otherness” (racial, gender, sexual, able-bodied, class oligarchies…).

- How can traditions be made anew, moving away from national identity? 

- The interconnection between decolonial perspectives, patriarchy and gender (eg. Cuir Theory as a critical displacement from Queer Theory, trans*feminist imaginary, ecofeminisms, cyberfeminisms, indigenous feminism...).

- The role of (post)memory in visual culture. How can memory be used to deal with (intergenerational) trauma? How can forms of oppression become challenged through the expression of (inter)personal experience? 

 

Spanish version:

Ambactia Memoria es una exposición colectiva que tendrá lugar en SomoS Art House Berlín entre el 2 y el 13 de marzo de 2021, coincidiendo con el Berlin Travel Festival como un espacio crítico alternativo. El objetivo de dicha exposición es el de invitar a artistas y públicos a deconstruir la idea de la Hispanidad e imaginar colectivamente su transformación. Críticos, activistas y artistas son llamados a articular y explorar lenguajes y prácticas artísticas no normativas con respecto a conceptos como el de tradición, memoria e identidades en relación con lo hispano.

Comisariada por Vanesa Peña Alarcón (ES), Ambactia Memoria toma como punto de partida la crítica institucional hacia la representación estereotipada de lo denominado como hispano por parte de organizaciones diplomáticas internacionales e institutos culturales. Para Peña, esta representación de lo hispano o el concepto mismo de hispanidad, es una forma de administración falaz de la historia, la memoria colectiva y las subjetividades, una perspectiva unilateral que excluye toda reparación y realidad transcultural.

Las contribuciones deben reflexionar sobre:

- La (re)presentación internacional de las denominadas “culturas hispanas” y las políticas de la mirada hispana. ¿Puede hablar el hispanx? 

- El auge de las identidades culturales nacionales frente a “la otredad” (oligarquías raciales, de género, sexuales, de clase, funcionales...).

- ¿Cómo se puede reimaginar el concepto de tradición alejándose de dichas identidades nacionales? ¿Es posible reapropiarse de las propias tradiciones?

- La interrelación entre decolonialidad, patriarcado y género (ej. la Teoría Cuir como desplazamiento crítico desde la Teoría Queer, el imaginario trans*feminista, los ecofeminismos, los ciberfeminismos, el feminismo indígena...).

- El papel de la (post)memoria en la cultura visual. ¿De qué manera puede emplearse la memoria para lidiar con el trauma (intergeneracional)? ¿Cómo pueden desafiarse las formas de opresión mediante el testimonio de la experiencia (inter)personal?

English version:

SomoS is an artist-run initiative, therefore financial support is limited. While we are working on the funding, the exhibition is not currently subsidized by third parties. In the Berlin area, SomoS can assist with, or arrange transportation and may assist in installing and helping in the creation of new work in the exhibition space according to the artist’s concept. 

 

Spanish version:

SomoS es una iniciativa dirigida por artistas, por lo tanto el apoyo financiero es limitado. Mientras trabajamos en conseguir formas de financiación, esta exposición no está actualmente subvencionada por terceros. En el área metropolitana de Berlín, SomoS puede ayudar con el transporte de obra, así como con la instalación y creación de obras nuevas en el espacio expositivo de acuerdo con el concepto del artista.
