FANTASMAGORÍAS DE UN CISNE AZUL 2021
The program of residencies, activities and publications for this period is built on the basis of concepts such as chimera, illusion, fiction, myth. The story of the Greek mythology Leda and the swan acts as an invitation to experiment around what does not exist but can be imagined. The speculative, the magical, the unreal, that which can be activated in another plane of perception and knowledge, will be part of the different projects in 2021.
A swan seduces and penetrates a woman on the shore of a lake. She becomes pregnant and months later she gives birth to a couple of eggs from which her children are born. "How can imaginary meanings be distinguished from rational meanings in history?" asks Cornelius Castoriadis. Our culture, the political system that governs us, our economic paradigm, the collective identity of a territory is built on stories this fantastic and unreal.
Imagination is and has been a political tool. It raises projects as chimerical as they are destructive, but it also opens perspectives, allowing drawing collective desires, which are born from the very heart of a community.
