WHICH LANGUAGE WILL I SPEAK TO YOU? COLLECTIVE VOICE AFTER THE END OF PROTEST
Mentor: Luigi Coppola
Guest: Daniel Blanga-Gubbay
Where: Cittadellarte, Biella
Which theoretical frame do we need to preserve as root in a new process of creation of a shared
language of mobilization? And how to use it? How can we formalize a language that has a capacity to be effective and “popular” without loosing the complexity inherent in the global context? How can the artist and the artistic approach be relevant in the co-construction of such a language?
The module is a shared moment of research and practices on strategies of taking and giving voice in the public and political sphere, starting from some urgent questions in the construction (as linguistic agent) of a collective consciousness. These questions are the starting point to re-imagine the script, the storyline and the ways of thinking about activism, social change and protest.
Luigi Coppola is an Italian artist who works within the fields of performance, video and public art projects. Through his research he develops social choreographies as democratic models, partecipative and collaborative practices, politically motivated actions, bringing to front a notion of art practice as mise en forme of political, economic, social issues and claims. He is currently involved in a project aiming at the common reorganization of the political, agricultural and economic systems of a entire village in the south of Italy and in long term projects on “political chorality” in different places in Europe. He created projects, performances, projects and exhibitions in different international contexts such as “1st Democracy Biennale”, Turin; Nomas Foundation, Rome; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; Galleria Lungomare (in the frame of “Manifesta 7” and Lungomare Gasthaus). He was with Michelangelo Pistoletto joint artistic curator of the “Urban Art Biennale” in Bordeaux and was part of the knowledge circle “Art in Society” directed by Pascal Gielen at the Fontys University.
