Summer workshop in Palermo
This workshop will gather international students in
Architecture, Art and the Humanities during one week in Palermo,
Sicily. A collaboration between Stalker, Umeå School of
Architecture, Master in Environmental humanities at Università Roma
3, Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and local, cultural
institutions and associations in Palermo (Teatro Massimo, CLAC,
Dimora OZ, Polipolis, Caffè Internazionale).
The current urban regeneration project of Palermo focuses on the
importance of art, cultural grassroots initiatives and migrants.
The multi-layered and deeply condensed history of the city has left
its traces throughout its multi-cultural society at the heart of
the Mediterranean area. In 2017 the mayor launched the "Charter of
Palermo"which established free movement of all people in the
territory of the city. Palermo is the European Capital of Culture
2018 and is also hosting the Manifesta
European Nomadic Biennial of Art.
In relation to the Manifesta programme of exhibitions and
artists' interventions, this summer school will explore how the
city can be regenerated in the encounter of art, territory, people
living there and people passing through. What is the relationship
between the monuments of Palermo and the immaterial history of
migration? What constitutes heritage? How can marginalized forms of
habitation be valued?
Guided by Stalker, an Italian collective of architects
and artists, participants will experience Palermo, through the
practice of walking, and investigate how art and culture can
influence the uses and the social relationships that produce the
landscape. Students, artists, local citizens and migrants will
together experiment new relationships with sites by creating
collective works. It can be a performance, an artwork, a monument,
a convivial moment or something different.
