PERFORMATIVE VISITS OF EXHIBITIONS
In our performative visits we will explore other ways of seeing exhibitions by analysing social choreographies and political readings. Using elements like the voice, the body and its relationship with space, we will engage collectively with the works. We believe that in this way the rooms at CA2M can potentially become meeting places where we can negotiate the roles of the voices that teach and the silences of those who always listen. On these guided visits we will ignore the walkthrough of the single discourse and open up the space to create new imaginaries for the body: Is it possible to make our way through an exhibition in another way? What happens when our bodies look collectively and our voices meet in the exhibition room?
Performative visits: Saturdays and Sundays at 18:30 (September at 19:00). No previous booking required.
Today there is a visit with a group of people wandering through the halls in the museum. They smile a lot, look, check each other out, walk about silently. Although they don’t talk, their bodies say a lot. One of them bends down to see a work that is resting directly on the floor, and their eyes suddenly have a different sparkle to them. They move about in groups, in couples, sometimes almost in Indian file, one of them hands a mint leaf from the roof garden to another for them to smell it and the other recognises in the smell a land they love.
In these performative visits we have abandoned the voice in order to let silence have its say, a silence that says to others what can only be said this way.
Associations, organizations and groups of up to 30.
Schedule: Saturdays 12:30 with prior appointment.
