4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture

Multi-Chapter Exhibition

About the Multi-Chapter Exhibition

The multi-chapter exhibition is coordinated by FCH-UCP and organised by all partners with the goal of raising the awareness of community members regarding their roles as active agents in the cultural scene at local, regional, national, and international levels.

Rather than a travelling exhibition that presents the same works in different institutions, which often has a homogeneity effect, this multi-chapter exhibition will allow partner institutions to contribute with their own context-based exhibition to the overarching concept of the 4Cs. All chapters of the exhibition will be conceived under the same conceptual umbrella: the transition from Conflict to Conviviality.

Each one will follow its own narrative, therefore forming a larger non-linear narrative composed of eight chapters. Each chapter will be organised and curated by one partner institution and show a group of international artists or commission a new project by one artist. The final exhibition chapter will work as a conclusion of all exhibition chapters developed in each previous partner institutions.

New Eelam

New Eelam, by Christopher Kulendran Thomas (London) in collaboration with Annika Kuhlmann (Berlin), is a long-term artwork in the form of a start-up—a real-estate technology company founded by the artist to develop a flexible, global housing subscription that aims to make homes as streamable as music or movies. Based on collective co-ownership rather than private property, it aims to rewire property relations through the luxury of communalism rather than of individual ownership.

Aimée Zito Lema. 13 Shots

The work of Aimée Zito Lema (Amsterdam, 1982) addresses the dynamics between individual and collective memory, with a particular focus on the recording and intergenerational transmission of events, both through material history and through the human body as a mnemonic repository. Placing aesthetic and social practices side by side, her work inhabits a world of critical interaction between the material and the human.
