Seminar Indigestion Languages ​​and Visual Policies

Languages ​​of Indigestion and Visual Policies is the title of Daniel Sepúlveda's seminar and performance reading. The notions of aesthetics, language and visuality are crossed by the white colonial heritage, a factor that determines the ways in which these concepts were materialized throughout the so-called universal history. The seminar “Languages ​​of indigestion and visual policies” is proposed as a place to put these categories in tension, in order to imagine other forms of perception that, in turn, intervene in the field of production of the sensory to disengage / disable oculocentrism and its colonial dictatorship (Valencia, 2019).

 This seminar lasts 8 months and will be held in person and online with several invited professors and intervention actions in the public space. We are calling on all artists, researchers and people interested in the topics raised by the seminar. The first block has the following form: -visual languages ​​and coloniality of seeing -cartographies of coloniality, oculocentrism and its colonial dictatorship ** @ laryssamachada will be our first invited teacher in this first block



The Seminar on Indigestion Languages ​​and Visual Policies (@cipei_) along with the 
# CAPACETE2019_2020 program features:

Workshop with Laryssa Machada * on days 2 (from 17 to 20h) and December 3 (from 16 to 19hr)

the fiction of the end has arrived; One of the paths passed through the leaves is to double time space. 
It's all made up now, the world I'll tell you. ///
"Sometimes to Access the Earth We Must Fall" are imaginary (and energetic) rituals of reconnecting 
with our [non] memories to enter the future from a critical eye on colonial historicity and the 
transit of non-hegemonic bodies through the city. . Through the construction of photoperformances 
that include symbols / objects / gestures from Amerindian and aphrodiasporic populations, the idea 
is to visit the healing process that racialized bodies build daily from their [re] creations of reality.
 In the ambition to redesign the future, it is impossible to do so from the oblivion of these violence.
 Thus, we evoke imaginary rituals to realize the axes of cleansing, discharging negative ebos, 
historical quizilas.
The purpose of the workshop is to visit the participant dxs memories seeking to double time-space, 
building new imagery references and rewriting the historicity of the land we ascended. 
|| LIMITED VACANCIES || * @ laryssamachada is a visual artist, photographer and filmmaker.
 builds images as rituals of decolonization and reinvention of reality. His works discuss 
the construction of image about LGBT's, indigenous people, quilombolas, people of the street. 
believe in the weather and storms.

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.

Epiphyte Program

programa epifita

Agência Transitiva is a landless space-vehicle that, as lives an epiphyte plant, at suit 3301 of jardin CAPACETE, where it germinates work, encounters, exchanges and co-living. Without removing nutrients from the hull the epiphyte program utilizes this space-situ as a support to reach its ideal environment in the forest strata. Common in tropical forests, this practice allows for herbaceous plants to cooperate circularly for light, air, and space prospering even without soil.

Agência Transitiva came about in 2013, as a multiple organism formed by artists, researchers, translators, hackers, designers, students, managers, dancers, etc., that reconfigure itself according to each action. In 2015, in addition to piloting this prototype plant the agents Pedro Victor Brandão, Maíra das Neves, Kadija de Paula and Thais Medeiros also cultivate CAPACETE’s bookstore, from Wednesday to Friday from 15:00 to 19:00 together with participants of CAPACETE’s annual program.

Agência Transitiva creates co-living experiences, shared auto-education, socio-economic experiments, and chain reactions.
