Graphic Storytelling (2024) Pinzón Lizarazo Oscar Daniel
Esta página web recoge la memoria del proyecto narración gráfica a partir del proyecto Narración gráfica, laboratorio de objetos, cartografía digital y mediaciones en experiencias con comunidades de artistas migrantes, registrado con Cód. 10160180521 proyecto institucionalizado sin financiamiento del Centro de Investigaciones y Desarrollo Científico - CIDC de la Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas. Hace parte del proceso metodológico de desarrollo de la tesis doctoral Narración Gráfica de Experiencias: Intercambios en Imágenes de migración. Como Laboratorio de investigación - creación ha indagado y trabajado en sus 17 años de existencia en procesos de creación, gestión, investigación, formación y producción de conocimiento desde tres líneas de trabajo: - Imagen, arte y cultura: como campo de prácticas pedagógicas y estudios de la cultura; donde se cruzan diversos discursos sobre la identidad, los procesos de memoria, lo simbólico, es de interés la sistematización de prácticas artísticas en donde surgen experiencias generadoras de conocimiento sensible. - El conocimiento libre: Trabaja en la elaboración conceptual de talleres y laboratorios de creación con procesos que se desarrollan desde el concepto de cultura hacedora, promueve el aprendizaje activo, la colaboración abierta, el D.I.Y. y su aplicación en diversos escenarios y contextos. - La narrativa y la lectura: Se han trabajado procesos de mediación y agenciamiento desde hace mas de 15 años, acompaña sus procesos desde el estudio y elaboración de propuestas creativas que refieren a la narración gráfica y los cruces generados entre las nociones de objeto, plataforma, libro, público y sus relaciones en los procesos de difusión, promoción, producción, edición y diseño de piezas interactivas. Este proceso fue concebido por Daniel Pinzón Lizarazo quien es Doctorando en Estudios Artísticos de la Universidad Distrital, Magíster en Escrituras Creativas de la Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Diplomado en Antropología del arte de Latir A.C. y el CIESAS en México, Diplomado en estudios editoriales por el Instituto Caro y Cuervo; Licenciado en educación artística de la Universidad Distrital, trabaja como docente, investigador y creador, ha sido gestor y asesor en el diseño de políticas referentes a las pedagogías del arte y la cultura.

MY PUBLIC STAGE (2024) Ioannis Karounis
"My Public Stage" is not merely an artistic practice; it is a dynamic fusion of performance art and civic engagement that transcends conventional boundaries. At its core, this practice navigates the intricate relationship between the artist and the public sphere, offering an unconventional perspective on how art can reshape our understanding of the world. The essential aspect of this artistic journey lies in the intentional placement of artistic interventions and performances within public spaces, where the encounter with viewers is not a predetermined spectacle but a meeting. This deliberate approach seeks to dissolve the traditional separation between the artist and the individual, fostering a unique connection that is spontaneous and genuine. I view public space as not only a material but also a social environment that is produced, reshaped and restructured by the citizens through their experiences, their intentions for action and the relations they develop in it. My project draws on Lefebvre’s (2019) approach to urban public space not as a neutral container of social life, but as a fluid entity, both constructed and produced by social practices. Lefebvre’s approach confirms and expands my view that public space is not fixed, yet it requires a conscious effort to intervene in its production. The philosophy driving "My Public Stage" aligns with the concept of civic engagement. By presenting long durational performances in the heart of everyday life, the artist consciously assumes the role of a creator, using performance art as a medium to unveil the interconnected elements that bridge art with life. This philosophy echoes the sentiment of Joseph Beuys, who believed that everyone is an artist, actively sculpting the intricate sculpture we call life. In embracing the public sphere as its canvas, this practice transcends the conventional boundaries of art and daily reality. It becomes a catalyst for a different perspective on how individuals perceive and engage with their surroundings. The transformative power of performance art is harnessed to reveal the latent artistic potential within each person, emphasizing the symbiotic relationship between art and life.

Performing Precarity (2024) Laurence Crane, Anders Førisdal, LEA Ye Gyoung, Io A. Sivertsen, Lisa Streich, Jennifer Torrence and Ellen Ugelvik
To be a contemporary music performer today is to have a deeply fragmented practice. The performer’s role is no longer simply a matter of mastering her instrument and executing a score. Music practices are increasingly incorporating new instruments and technologies, methods of creating works, audience interaction and situations of interdependence between performer subjects. The performer finds herself unable to keep a sense of mastery over the performance. In other words, performing is increasingly precarious.

WALKING BETWEEN WOR[L]DS WITH LINES (2024) Benjamin Jenner
WALKING BETWEEN WOR[L]DS WITH LINES is a workshop. It was delivered at Convocation II, Vienna, 2023, a gathering arranged and facilitated by the Language-Based Artistic Research Group. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this research is to explore how, in the absence of vision, the body, language and landscape combine to form a particular type of cartographic, text-informed, mental image in the mind, that is both a record of movement and a score for future object intra-actions. Ordinarily, I fill the role of blindfolded navigator, with a colleague playing the role of the sighted interlocutor. This activity flipped these roles, enabling me to utilise the experience I have acquired through navigating many forests without sight, to assist participants in navigating blindfold through the landscape of Convocation II, Zentrum Fokus Forschung (ZFF). The blurring of physical site and temporal event is deliberate here, the activity of navigating blindfolded with the body generatively blending with psychic travel in the mind. This is an opportunity for participants to think about how vision enables a particular version of the wor[l]d, and to speculate on what other kinds of wor[l]d might be possible in vision’s absence.

Come rendere visibile l'invisibile? (2024) Michele Rinaldi
In occasione del workshop tenuto dal prof Ripa di Meana e dal post-doc Andrea Guidi, sono stato invitato a leggere la scena quarta e quinta dell'Amleto di Shakespeare. Dopo una iniziale lettura personale, il prof ha tenuto una lettura collettiva in cui ciascuno studente esponeva le prime impressioni sul testo. In questa fase il prof ci ha aiutato a focalizzare meglio i temi principali delle scene lette, agevolando noi studenti l'osservazione di alcune delle dinamiche principali della tragedia. Dopo la lettura collettiva, è iniziato il mio personale processo sul testo di Shakespeare che si è composto di tre fasi principali: - reinterpretazione, - ricerca, - rielaborazione. 1 FASE DI REINTERPRETAZIONE Sono partito rileggendo il testo dell'Amleto e, contemporaneamente, su un foglio scrivevo quelli che ritenevo essere i "punti principali" delle scene analizzate. Successivamente ho iniziato una fase di "brainstorming personale" in cui andavo a scrivere tutte le parole-chiave che mi venivano in mente, cercando connessioni, approfondimenti e punti di vista diversi tra le varie parole che venivano fuori. 2 FASE DI RICERCA Una volta completata questa prima fase di reinterpretazione del testo, mi sono concentrato sulla ricerca delle principali tematiche che sono venute a galla nei punti chiave e nel brainstorming. Nel farlo ho utilizzato due strumenti: il primo è KOBI e il secondo è Perplexity. In questa analisi, non mi soffermerò sul secondo ma esporrò le ricerche effettuate sulla prima piattaforma menzionata. In generale, la fase di ricerca è consistita in un'alternarsi e un'influenzarsi di entrambi i motori di ricerca. Su KOBI ho cercato parole-chiave come: "delirio", "sogno", "complesso di edipo", "piattaforma", "memoria", "ricordo" ecc... Per alcune ricerche non usciva nulla, per altre invece venivano suggeriti media e materiali estremamente interessanti che hanno indirizzato il mio percorso di rielaborazione del testo. 3 FASE DI RIELABORAZIONE Una volta soddisfatto la mia necessità di ricerca di materiale, in maniera molto naturale, ho avuto l'idea di come rielaborare uno dei temi principali emersi nel testo shakespeariano. In sintesi, ritengo KOBI uno strumento efficace per aumentare la creatività, tuttavia in questa fase embrionale della piattaforma, risulta ancora difficile ottenere sempre risultati, per via del ristretto database di cui la piattaforma fa uso. Tuttavia, se sviluppata al meglio, ritengo che questo possa essere un medium fantastico per chiunque faccia ricerca, artistica e non, ampliando le proprie possibilità creative e il proprio bagaglio di conoscenza.
