Festival House of Displacement - Postponed
The curatorial collective CampoBase, selected through an open call in 2019 to participate in Encura 4 program, is planning a four-day festival called House of Displacement, as a final outcome of their residency. Originally planned between 27-30 March 2020, the festival was postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis and it will be soon rescheduled to a new date. Meanwhile, you can check on their updates and whereabouts at Art Spy's blog.
House of Displacement takes place at Poblenou, Barcelona, and delves into questions such as: How to orient ourselves in a world of constant change? How can we see the question of displacement as an opportunity for action and not a limiting factor?
The festival creates a temporary platform that aims to collectively explore new ways of living displacement. The project creates the paradox of a displaced house, by pairing together two contradictory words: on the one hand the solid structure to inhabit, on the other a state of instability and precariousness. During the weekend, the public is invited to live and experience this condition in different places of the Poblenou neighborhood, through a series of artistic interventions and workshops, in the belief that each movement produces an effect of knowledge.
The festival ends with Paratext, the final event of the residency, which consists in a moment of collective reflection on the shared experience.
The participating artists in House of Displacement Barcelona are:
Lucía Egaña Rojas (Münster, Chile)
La Más Bella (Pepe Murciego & Diego Ortiz, Madrid)
Sofía Montenegro (Madrid)
Anna Irina Russell (Barcelona)
