A series of online talks, lectures and meetings streamed on Facebook and Youtube Channels featuring international scholars, curators and artists, in the frame of Atlas of Transitions Biennale 2020.
Performing Resistance is a digital discursive platform aimed at exploring the ways in which artistic practices build spaces of resistance, forms of subversion, counter-hegemonic postures on migration, actions capable of outlining other visions of and in contemporary cities.
From different perspectives and using various methodological tools, the Summer School dialogues investigate the relationship between the arts, migration and citizenship.deconstructing paternalistic, neocolonial and exoticizing positions that stigmatize the migrant as a fetishized "figure”. They also transversally discuss issues such as the borderline between art and activism, the creation of alternative dispositif of knowledge, countering silenced and invisibilized subjectivities, the notion of participation, the dynamics of a re-appropriation of public space, right to the city, forms of "affective" citizenship, critically reflecting on borders and mobility.
Performing Resistance is organised in the frame of the project "Atlas of Transitions, New Geographies for a Cross-Cultural Europe (2017-2020)" co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme, which brings theatres, cultural institutions, universities artists, researchers, local communities together through culture and performing arts in 7 European countries.
