Margarita del Carmen + Kristian Byskov

Margarita del Carmen and Kristian Byskov are working together on a practical research since
2013. This research takes its point of departure in a search for methods and practices of how
groups of people together can creatively work with the spaces they inhabit. Within this search,
Kristian and Margarita have looked and tried methods of collaborative design; ecological
practices; urban planning; artistic pedagogical tools; as well as exercises and approaches from
the Theater of the Oppressed.
During their period in Capacete, they will research further on theatrical approaches to space,
groups and conflicts within the framework of Félix Guattari’s notion of ‘micro-fascism’ as well as
Augusto Boal’s exercises on ‘the cop in the head’. Margarita and Kristian would like to
participate in conversations and activities around questions like:
If space is always political, loaded with structures of power and domination, how can we as
artists structure our spatial practice and refine our methods to artistically create spaces for
emancipatory practices? How can these artistic actions counter the micro-fascisms from being
expressed through us in our daily, social relations? Does the history of fascist domination repeat
itself in spaces and how can this be changed?





Katherine MacBride

Katherine MacBride is an artist. At one point she was also an art therapist. She works with performance, installation, writing, video, sound, and event making, with and without institutions. Collaboration and supportive practices are important to her: she prints small-edition feminist publications; edits other people’s writing for income and pleasure and sometimes both; works in a drop-in art studio for homeless people; plays synth and quiet vocals in a non-binary music sprawl; and is learning to play and make space with Tender Center, a collectively-run venue for queer events in Rotterdam.
Much of her practice focuses on relational entanglements, listening across and being attentive to difference, and working creatively towards an ethics of inseparability and interdependency.
At Capacete, she’s learning Portuguese so she can talk slowly to people about how they do what they do, sewing small things, listening, walking, cooking, writing, reading, talking. She’d be interested to do any of these things with you and maybe having a chat about what kinds of listening, attention-giving, hosting, and space-making you use in your artistic, collective, political, caring, personal, or any other day-to-day practices.

Prerna Bishnoi


Prerna Bishnoi is an artist, filmmaker and researcher whose practice is at the co-influence of filmmaking, performativity, study and spatial production. She is concerned with the conditions of work and play and works with strategies of creating, organising and mobilising communities in struggles of commoning through films, texts, storytelling, games and sound pieces. Operating from a position of critical intimacy, she works towards actively re-imagining existing systemic relations. She currently lives in Trondheim but roots her practice in both India and Norway.
During the residency I will be working on my project ‘Surface Tension’ that is primarily located around the spectacularly foamy Bellandur lake in Bangalore. I hope to draw lines between the commons experiences of toxicity (from Bangalore to Brazil), paying special attention to symptoms of toxicity (aural and visual), acts of resistance, toxic time (from spectacular toxic events, their aftermath to the slow impact of toxicity on bodies and spaces). I will also work on creating a plant portrait of the invasive species Water Hyacinth, native to Brazil. In India (called ‘Bengal’s Terror’ among other names), the plant is a remnant of an encounter with Western imperialism and is now a symptom of dissolved pollutants in the water while making water transportation and hydro-power difficult. In its native waters, I am interested in its manifestation in art, folklore, oral histories, literature and poetry. Water Hyacinths fascinate me because it is historically an exotic plant, gifted far and wide for its beauty but who finds it beautiful today when it insists on resisting and transforming economic uses of water bodies?

Ina Hagen

During her time at Capacete, artist and writer Ina Hagen (NO) sets out to learn about the residency’s long history and how it has maintained connected to its local and extended community over the years. Central to her inquiries is intimacy; how it is enacted across relations that have been forged in times of difficulty, how intimacy gives and takes, and how it eventually weaves or unravels a feeling of solidarity with others. With Capacete as a frame of reference, she is curious to discuss how such solidarity is maintained, and whether intimacy still remains a meaningful force in the current face of increasingly polarised public life.

Ina Hagen (b.1989, Norway) is an artist and writer based in Oslo. Her work explores layers of mediation between audiences, artwork and artists, in order to create instances of collective, critical reflection. She explores this through performative situations and platforms for social thinking. Hagen has been running one such platform; Louise Dany, together with artist Daisuke Kosugi, from their home and adjacent store-front since 2016. She writes regularly for the Scandinavian online art journal, and is the deputy chair of the young artist’s membership organization and contemporary art institution, UKS (Young Artist’s Society). Hagen has exhibited at: INCA, Seattle (Solo); Kunsthall Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Podium, Oslo, among others. Upcoming exhibitions include the tenth Momentum biennale in Moss (The Emotional Exhibition, 2019) and INDEX – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm.

Tenzing Barshee (born 1983) is an independant writer and a curator at Sundogs in Paris. In Rio de Janeiro, he reflects on how the idea of „touching and being touched“ can assist and complicate the displacement of one‘s own body. Following different cues, he approaches people and places with a determined willingness to engage, paired with the melancholy inherent to the memory of a childlike curiosity.

About the residency: The focus of my research is the Invisible Knowledge, which I have developed experimentally, based on anti-colonial strategies, self-care pedagogies and non-cartesian epistemologies. I present my performance “de_colon_isation”, which is part of my research at the University of Fine Arts Vienna. I release the book in Brazil “Anti*Colonial Fantasies – Decolonial Strategies” and I work on my project “Anti-analysis”, where I schedule an appointment with 6 artists (individually or in groups) per day, in a free session of 50 minutes each, focusing on art, critical theory and pedagogy.

She is available to share the practices and tools I use and research (Political Therapy as well as various reading and healing practices) with whomever is interested in experiencing and further exploring them with her. She is particularly interested in approaching study as a practice of healing, but how that can be done and what kind of collective experiments of study we could set up during the residency is totally up to encounters, circumstances and urgent necessities that emerge.
