International Meeting – Another Roadmap School
Another Roadmap

October 18-22, 2015, Madrid
Public presentation Thursday 22nd at 5.30 pm

Intermediae hosts  the International Meeting of the network Another Roadmap for Arts Education, which will be develop during  5 working days and gather together approximately 20 working groups from America, Asia, Africa and Europe . The participants in the network collaborate to reflect and research on the histories, policies and possible alternative practices in arts education.This meeting will work on the research platform The Another Roadmap School , a learning  and exchange project focussing on education, cultural policies and  southern epistemologies  in arts education. The working meeting will be at Intermediae for four days. On Thursday 22 at 18.00 pm, a  public meeting  will take place with various panels in English or Spanish, in order to present part of the work of the groups invited specific practices as well as issues raised by research in the fields of culture, popular education or collaborative work.

Another Roadmap is an international network of research groups which was initiated by the Institute of Art Education (IAE) at Zürich University of the Arts (ZHDK). The joint research aims to critically analyse cultural policies concerning arts education such as the UNESCO Road Map for Arts Education (Lisbon, 2006) and the UNESCO Seoul Agenda (Seoul, 2010) in terms of their history and terminology, subtexts and paradigms as well as their application in each geopolitical context. The groups draw on critical studies and practices in arts education in each region in order to develop paradigms for their field of practice and research.

The Another Roadmap School aims to inspire and enable a process of learning and thinking across regional and disciplinary borders, actively involving researchers, educators, scholars, theoreticians, practitioners, artists and curators. It will offer a space for development, critical reflection and the dissemination of knowledge in arts education. It will work as a learning and exchange platform for transnational and trans-regional collaboration in the diverse fields of practice, comprising formal arts education, gallery education, art in social context, community arts and social justice work.
Whit learning units resulting from the school’s projects as well as a multivocal glossary of Arts Education, it will actively archive and disseminate outcomes of the knowledge produced both locally as well as internationally.

KOMMUNE An installation by Andrés Senra

From 21 of november

Kommune is an offering from artist Andrés Senra who, based on the experiences and testimony of the residents of Christiania, reflects upon the possibilities and limitations of utopia, common good and self-governance.

Standing in the very heart of Copenhagen, Christiania is an area that has been squatted since 1973 and home to over 900 people. Their aim is to create a self-governing society outside the state system. Based on this approach, the inhabitants of Christiania were asked what their ideal city would be from their own personal perspective, what are their feelings, fears, dreams and needs and how to manage positions of power, consensus decision-making, interpersonal relations and individual-community disputes in the face of daily reality within the community.

The work combines video and watercolours to portray Christiania's people, landscapes, architecture, recreational areas and places of work, establishing links with the history of utopian writing, painting, architecture, territory, cartography and urban design of ideal cities.

404: Amar en tiempos Hipster

Hipsteria Lane: Gentrifying Intimacy

April 20-21 11am-2pm and 4pm-8pm.

A workshop kicking off collective research into a new cultural paradigm through its media representation.
It would be quite hard to understand cultural industries without first understanding the central position that love has attained in the heart of them.  If we took away love as a theme for pop music, film, literature, and television programmes, we would be left with scarcely any content, or we would at least have to make do without a main content that simultaneously forms the backbone for many others.
Here when we say love we do not mean a set of emotions and feelings that are felt and lived by those consuming cultural content.  Instead we are talking about a complex instrument pertaining to cultural industries and having different genealogies and manifestations.  We are talking about a discursive framework containing collective imaginations and sincretic representations.  We mean a set of archetypes, narratives, key words, situations, and conduct that are inextricably linked and woven into the content of cultural industries in a sort of discursive consensus of love.
Therefore, we must escape from the proverbially inrreproachable individual feeling and focus on disecting a social instrument represented and presented incessantly as text, pretext, or subtext in contemporary cultural products.
Amar en tiempos Hipster [Love in the Time of the Hipster] is a workshop that sets out to discover what is the ideal for love and what ways of experiencing sexuality are represented by all things “hipster”.  It is a workshop for analysis and the building of (ambiguous) texts using several kinds of language (discursive, journalistic, fiction and non-fiction, textual and audiovisual, ethnographic, pictorial, stage, and podcast) pertaining to the socio-emotional forms and sexuality that the hispter “subculture” offers and how we are affected, both socially and individually, by it.

Open Terrario / Presentation of the book 2000 Kcal / 8439.5 kJ 2000 Kcal / 8439.5 kJ
Rafael Suárez

Thursday 10 January 7:30 – 10 pm

This work began in 2009 as a reflection on assessing the human body as an economic system. Parallels were drawn between the problem of obesity and the economic system in which we live, both phenomena characterised by improper management of surpluses. The photographic work has turned into a book with collaboration from two specialists, an economist and a biologist. They offer academic perspectives on surplus management in an organism and in a socio-political structure.
This unusual presentation will take place around a buffet table with various components that dialogue with the work to be presented.

Seed exchange bank event

Thursday 3 January, 6 pm

The Seed Exchange Bank is an initiative in favour of decentralizing control of seeds and questioning the management models we generate or in which we take part in this culture with our current way of life. The Seed Exchange Bank and the activities it holds are offered as a metaphor for the need for change in society today.

The first Thursday of each month, a seed exchange session is held for growers, horticulture enthusiasts, and anyone interested in being part of a social network based on organic and sustainable principles, where know-how can be shared about working with seeds and ways to enhance organic agriculture in Madrid.

The Seed Exchange Bank can be visited on a regular basis at the Terrario at Intermediae.

Toxic Lesbian

Mujeres bajo sospecha (Women Under Suspicion). Saturday10 November at 7 p.m.
* The session will be broadcast live as of 7 p.m. via the channel and on @toxiclesbian as of 6.30 p.m.

Toxic Lesbian’s Open Dialogues present Mujeres bajo sospecha (Women Under Suspicion), a book that collects the research carried out from 2007 to date, along with a video directed by Cecilia Montagut titled Memoria y sexualidad de las mujeres bajo el franquismo (Memory and Sexuality of Women during the Franco Years).
Female sexuality, denied, silenced or repressed, is made visible in this project that goes beyond the model of an immaculate woman, a mother and wife, placing special importance on non-normative sexualities and homoerotic/affective relations among women.
The lack of any traces of female sexuality from that period impedes a linear history, aggravated by the silence imposed by the context and women themselves. Many suffered repression but there were also resistant subjects who lived out forms of sexuality that questioned the sole heterosexual model, moving away from passivity as destiny.

Participants at the meeting will include the project coordinator Raquel Osborne in dialogue with writer  Raquel (Lucas) Platero, researchers María Rosón Villena and Fefa Vila, and professors Jordi M. Monferrer Tomás and Kira Mahamud, as well as the public in attendance.

Escucha Pública #1. How to tell stories with sounds, with Antonio Altarriba. Friday 16 November at 8 p.m.

Radio Sures is a new web radio for radio documentaries. Without extra photos, or supporting videos, or multimedia bonus features, or anything like that. They tell stories using only sound resources. Of course that is possible.
They will prove it every month in the public listening sessions in which they will offer narrative sound documents, in Spanish and other languages, with subtitles.
Listening in the darkness, seated or lying down, as if we were in a cinema with a film without images. As Orson Welles said: “Compared to the cinema, radio has the advantage of having a larger screen.” He didn’t say that, but he could have.

The first session will have as a participant writer, professor of French literature and comic scriptwriter Antonio Altarriba, author of the marvellous Arte de volar (Art of Flying) (2010 National Comic Award).

Ovni Archive: Workshop: Collecting, Cataloguing and Categorizing
Thursday 24 February, 6:30 p.m.

Rosell Meseguer is offering this workshop to children ages 6-12. We will explore the archive, its origins and the significance of the “objects” comprising the Ovni Archive installation. A collection of objects, documents, photographs and drawings that create a space in the imagination about surveillance, war and the secret world of espionage, an archive of strangely familiar components. The monotype technique allows us to create imaginary documents, creatures we will attempt to name and classify, leading us to wonder what it means to construct history: to categorize, naming the world in order to be able to understand it.
