Share

Eligibility:

In a short amount of time, the Internet and digital technologies have dramatically changed the way we live our lives, and we are beginning to register and quantify how our daily contact with the digital world has altered the archive. How is technology being mobilized today to preserve and present archive and history? This residency invites participants to experience ANIMA Casa Rural through the lens of the archive, and consider how can the historical archive be used to find a way forward and makes sense of today.

Throughout the residency we will visit The National Archives of Mexico, Archivo de Instrumentos Públicos, Archivo del Arzobispado de Guadalajara, Archivo General de Notarías del Estado de Jalisco, and various archives in the surrounding area. Studio visits with archivists and local artists, will give participants the opportunity to explore these archives and further their own research. This residency will develop terms for working in the archive, and explore examples from contemporary practices that we can deployed when engaging with archival materials. Workshops on the farm will consider different ways of digitizing the archive, as well as explore experimental ways that the archive can be used in your artistic practice like digital editing, green screen, performance and installation. Participants are encourage to apply to this residency with a particular theme or focus they wish to research in the archives.

Site & Cycle

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.
