Papers for Words to Develop Cultural Plans (2013)

A residency program organized in collaboration with artist Diego Cibelli and independent researcher Angelo Ciniglio to identify tools, strategies, and technologies for rethinking the relationship between organism and environment (such as art and its institutional environment, citizens and their cities). The project focused on the re-elaboration of the practice of dwelling in the surrounding space, sharing it interculturally, fostering interdisciplinary exchanges and trans-species encounters (humans and non-humans aggregates), in order to perform unpredictable citizenships. I contributed in the concept development of the project, in the planning of and participation to open seminars, and in the elaboration of a critical essay as the output of the project.
