AFFECT is Agora's Program for Collaborative Artistic Practices in Berlin.
AFFECT is Agora's Program for Collaborative Artistic Practices in Berlin. Initiated in 2014 as a residency for artists with a cross-disciplinary approach, the 2015 edition is conceived as a 5-month-long program consisting of four consecutive modules each led by an international artist, who invites participants to collectively explore a topic and develop a set of practices and research methodologies over the period of one month in the city of Berlin. 2015 Summer Program offers international and national visitors the opportunity to join an immersive summer school where to explore four site specific aspects of art’s relation to Berlin, via artistic research and collaboration. The different modules are facilitated by international artists: Stine Marie Jacobsen, Lorenzo Sandoval, Yves Mettler, Diego Agulló. The program is initiated by Agora Collective and moderated by Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga. Each module takes the form of a participatory workshop revolving around a central research question supported by a series of activities proposed by the facilitators. Participants will have the opportunity to collectively delve into the proposed research question, bringing in their own sensibilities, practice and experience. Collective exercises, urban explorations and site visits, readings and discussions will pave the way towards individual projects as well as a final event which will allow the group to share and exercise some of the module’s findings in a public format. During the fifth month of the program, in September 2015, the four facilitators are commissioned to share, test out and expand on the findings of their month-long research in a public format, to be developed collaboratively. The program will be accompanied by a publication, to be published in the fall of 2015. AFFECT is kindly supported by: Creative Europe, Goethe Institut São Paulo, Instituto Cervantes Berlin, Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln e.V, L’Atelier Kunst Spiel Raum and Broken Dimanche Press.
