MAY 24 – JUL12. 2012
THU 21:00 H
Every Thursday during the months of May and July, CA2M terrace will feature a space for developing a whole new programme of activities which will mix together body and sound with education and participation.
CURATED BY ISRAEL SOUSA, RAFAFANS AND JOSÉ LUIS VILLALOBOS.
In this time of recession and economic cuts, CA2M expects to celebrate a Picnic wrapped in the essence of abundance. Let´s open the gates from imagination to vindicate that even though things don´t look that good, or maybe for that very reason, art offers us another way for creating abundance, clues that serve us for the day to day and for the social and political praxis: a celebration of how much we have (words and actions) and how much we can create with inimaginated tools. An abundance which is not other than the outcomes from the encounters we create for each edition, encounters where everything that might not happens, and which finally happens. And why not, when our "democracy" reaches its maximum limits of restrain -regulations, prohibitions, orders, rules...- we celebrate what is politically incorrect, as a way for liberation and creator energies.
The idea of abundance, although it might contradict the spirit of the Picnics (under the concept of precarious, the do-it-yourself )which links with and takes advantage of the picnics to otherwise understand this state of abundance that we want to celebrate. When they want to strip us from everything we have, we might not only question ourselves about how to create wealth, what is essential and what is superfluous, but also to answer in a imaginative way to that bet made by the public powers. Investigate new ways of production, other forms of living the community. We are not only to tighten our belts; they are going to burst out.
