HOME / AWAY
Call for projects open until November the 15th, 2006.
IDENSITAT 07 starts its fourth edition calling
for projects. It is addressed to artists who
offer proposals in the field of public space,
from a multidisciplinary perspective and having
the will of interacting in the social space of
the territory where the project is promoted.
IDENSITAT is a programme developed biannually
with the aim of offering mechanisms for the
structuring of creative projects in the field of
public space and that are related to the territory.
Since 1999 a series of projects and activities
have been done in the town of Calaf, and
progressively other relations have been
established with more towns, with the aim of
allowing the development of projects that can be
adapted to the own and multiple specificities
arising out from the singularity of a place.
IDENSITAT 07, just like in the previous edition,
takes place in two towns of the Barcelona
province, Calaf and Manresa, and moreover expands
the territorial network with the development of a
project in the town of Mataró, supported by Can Xalant.
TERRITORIES IN PROCESS
IDENSITAT 07 is conceived as an observatory of
the territory and a laboratory for the
development of projects, offering the opportunity
to intervene in an active way in the urban
processes, precisely when there is a phenomenon
of expansion and growth, as well as a redefining
of the identities that characterise them. The aim
is to favour a field of action, experimentation
and debate, which started in the previous edition
of the programme (IDENSITAT 05).
Considering the moment of intense urban evolution
going on now in Calaf, Manresa and Mataró, the
participants must articulate certain artistic
activities which include critical, analytic and
propositional regards that can involve certain
groups of population; or that permit formulating
alternative proposals at the same time, so that
it is possible to perceive, face and participate
in the urban processes taking place in a specific moment.
CALLING FOR PROJECTS
The call IDENSITAT 07 is structured around two
categories of presentation, having each different
goals and characteristics. One points to the
production of projects and the other one for
already implemented proposals (documentary
projects). HOME / AWAY is the motto chosen for a
possible project development based on the tension
between the two concepts: the belonging to a
territory, the identity issues, the long-term
cultural structuring, etc; being opposed or
related to the superficial, distant, curious and
less engaged regard, the tourist experience, or
others which could be stated thanks to the projects emerging in this call.
PRODUCTION OF PROJECTS linked to a place and
activated through procedural strategies and
strategies of cooperation with social groups; or
with projects intervening specifically or
incisively in the public space of these different
towns, existing the possibility of using the
infrastructure and means already available in the territory.
PROJECTS OF DOCUMENTATION. This category gathers
those works developed in other contexts, thus
promoting their diffusion and linking them to
different activities of debate, exposition and edition organised by IDENSITAT.
SELECTION COMMITTEE. The selection committee of
this call will be constituted by Santiago
Cirugeda, architect and artist; Amanda Cuesta,
independent curator; Alicia Murria, art critic
and director of the magazine ARTECONTEXTO; Ramon
Parramon, director of IDENSITAT; Lorenzo Romito,
architect and member of STALKER.
ECONOMIC ENDOWMENT. The economic endowment
destined to each selected project in the section
PRODUCTION OF PROJECTS will be determined by its
budget, having available a maximum amount of
11,000 ¤. In reference to the DOCUMENTATION
PROJECTS, the economic endowment might depend on
the presentation format of the project; having available a maximum of 1,500 ¤.
The deadline for this call of projects is November the 15th, 2006.
