Ambactia Memoria

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?

Opening PEP exhibition - « Interior »

What does the interior of a space reveal about its inhabitants? Houses, offices, corridors, waiting rooms... inside spaces are never really neutral. They are built and used by humans with a certain intention or ideology. They are places where people meet, events take place, stories are created. Interior photography, even in the absence of any character, reveals more than what is represented, inviting to wonder what happened or will happen inside, but also outside of the frame. The depicted spaces become like still lives that serve as a tableau of their occupant's inner life.

"Interior" is the first collective exhibition of PEP, the Photographic Exploration Project

OPENING: Saturday, August 10, 6-10 PM

Photo exhibition - Dance - Music

19:30 - 20:00
WURZELN - composed and performed by Ikrali Mamrikishivili and choreographed and performed by Mary Miracle. A short piece reflecting on the legacy of photographer Lee Miller.
Additional piano solo by Irakli Mamrikishivili

20:00 - 21:00
Ulysse (DJ)
Music is an experimentation of sensations helping us to find elements of our own truth. This project aims to explore those by embracing a purposely strong eclecticism in music selection.
