About The Event
Based on the call "Decolonizing Knowledge, Constructing Masculinities Otherwise", which mobilizes the work of the GlobalGRACE program in Brazil, the Brazilian team invited Andreza Jorge and Simonne Alves of the Maré-base dance collective, Mulheres ao Vento (Women of the Wind), together with the Dance Company Passinho Carioca, represented by Ayesca Mayara and Daniiel Ritmado, to open a dialogue about art as a transformative field of social relations and of the denaturalization of the intersectional norms, standards, and pacts of gender, committed to the protagonism of peripheralized subjects and territories. With the mediation of GG Brazil researcher, Andréa Gill, they spoke to the processes of the 2020 GlobalGRACE Artistic Residency, and shared some reflections on their collective production of the videodance "Na Manha" and how it approaches artistic and political debates on masculinities. The 2021 cohort of the Free School of Arts (ELÃ) is part of of the Brazilian actions of GlobalGRACE, carried out in partnership with IMJA/UNIperiferias, Institute Promundo, Institute of International Relations/PUC-Rio and Observatório de Favelas. The GlobalGRACE Brazilian team would like to invite all those interested to follow along with our online series of public talks leading up to our 2021 artistic residency on "Constructing Masculinities Otherwise". The first talk on "Decolonizing Knowledge, Constructing Masculinities Otherwise", as well as the second and third talks on "Bodies and Masculinities in the Process of Artistic Creation" are available on YouTube with the option of the platform's automatically translated subtitles. The final talk was live streamed on February 9th and continued the conversation on "Bodies and Masculinities in the Process of Artistic Creation", inviting artists and interlocutors from our 2019 artistic residencies to reflect on their experiences and open shared dialogues with the new cohort and general public. Participants from the graffiti residency that GlobalGRACE researcher Jimmy Turner organised with Isabela Souza and participated in in 2019 shared their experiences and artistic productions and processes.
