What One Can Be...
Public programme including a series of screenings, talks,workshops and performances by international artists, in the context of domestic interiors and spiritual spaces of the historic building of St. Barnabas and its chapel. ‘What one can be, one must be’ is a quote by Abraham Maslow, where he states that every person is capable and has the desire to move towards the higher level in the order of human needs. Following this idea, the programme seeks to reflect upon different hierarchies that emanate from socio-political structures or from our daily lives. The aim is to explore the fluctuation and relationship within the human needs: spontaneity coexisting with the need of shelter, creativity influencing the security of the body, morality squatting our sleep. These videos, performances, workshops and interventions stage and display the fragility of the human condition and its vulnerability. With a mix of wit, rawness and playfulness, they point out different ways and strategies with which human beings seek protection, shelter, and affection.
‘Moving Images and Shifting Needs’
Moving image programme exploring the human potential and the fluctuation of the order in the hierarchies of art and human needs. With the use of poetry, music, and by means of sounds and visual imaginaries, these videos provide an observation about finance and labour, communication and language, the virtual space and the space of history, and safety, crisis and protest.
