La comunitat inconfessable (The Unavowable Community) A project by Valentín Roma with:

Joan Vila-Puig and Elvira Pujol/Sitesize

Daniel G. Andújar/Technologies To The People
Pedro G. Romero/Archivo F.X.

Based on the book of the same name by Maurice Blanchot, The Unavowable Community is a proposal that explores the types of social intervention adopted by various artistic practices that are developed around the idea of the communal.

Three different projects have been selected to form part of this project: Sitesize by Joan Vila-Puig and Elvira Pujol, Technologies To The People by Daniel G. Andújar, and Arxiu F.X. by Pedro G. Romero. These projects share communal strategies of transversality and antagonism, in a territory that is difficult to chart, found in the cracks in both the institution of art and models of cultural productivity.

Entrevista con Valentín Roma

La “preocupación decorativa” es, como el tigre de Borges, una presencia dormida pero siempre a punto de despertar

por MARTÍ MANEN a-desk.org

Valentín Roma es el comisario del primer pabellón catalán en la Biennale de Venecia. Formando parte de los Eventi Collaterali, la apuesta de Roma va más allá los días de emoción, destellos y prisas de la más histórica de las bienales. Valentín Roma nos habla de cómo van las cosas y de qué ideas conforman su propuesta.

Martí Manen: Hace ya unos meses que, después de un proceso que destacó por su valentía en una apuesta por las buenas prácticas, tu proyecto para el pabellón catalán en la Bienal de Venecia resultó ganador. La bienal ya ha aceptado la propuesta, así que no quedan escollos para que podamos ver el pabellón. ¿Cómo va todo?

Valentín Roma: Bueno la verdad es que estamos trabajando a un ritmo frenético. El proyecto es bastante complejo en el sentido de tener una gran cantidad de interlocutores con los que colaboramos y, también, en el de dirigir su mirada hacia muy distintas direcciones, por lo que no nos sobra demasiado tiempo.

2009 Venice Biennial Turkish Pavilion delves into concept of ‘LAPSE’

Curator Başak Şenova’s project, “Lapses,” which is going to be showcased in the Turkish Pavilion during this year’s Venice Biennial, was introduced to the press this week by Şenova and artists of the exhibition Ahmet Öğüt and Banu Cennetoğlu.

Şenova explained that the word “lapse” connotes numerous verbs and nouns in English, yet there is no one word that corresponds to it in Turkish. “A lapse in the linear and continuous flow of time implies either a sense of disorientation or a disconnection with our personal surroundings. Only by recognizing such a lapse do we realize our ability to restructure memory in the space and time continuum through an uninterrupted flow, with afterimages that recur by narrations and our senses,” she said, adding that the whole project is based on reconstructing the memory again and again by remembering the past.The project will be realized through Cennetoğlu’s “Catalog,” and Ögüt’s “Exploded City.” “Both shows reveal the possibility for diverse memory formations — or diverse narratives — conceivable through lapses,” the curator elaborated. Cennetoğlu’s photographs are presented in the form of a performative “mail order catalog,” where hundreds of photographs are classified under subjective categories. All of the photographs from the mailing catalog can be downloaded for free exclusively during the duration of the Venice Biennial. “Rather than selling my works for higher amounts, I chose to give them away for free, so, in a way, the audience will be rewarded when they go home,” she said, explaining the reasoning behind her work.
