New World: Violence Remains
ANALCO PROJECT: Nomadic screenings of video/performance
25 - 30.9.2017
The word ANALCO comes from the náhuatl atl 'water', nalli 'the other side' and co 'place', in English it would mean "on the other side of the river”. Based in Helsinki, ANALCO PROJECT is a platform that explores the process of construction of a translocated identity, the process of adaptation and the importance of collaboration. This project is interested in the transmission of local histories and experiences as an alternative way of knowing the other outside the media barrier.
In May 2016 New World: Violence Remains, video/performance from Latin America, was launched as an open call directed to artists, activists, students, art historians, feminists and freelancers. It invited to expand notions of past and present (his)stories in speeches and hegemonic narratives, bringing together a selection of videos that could confront Finnish viewers with the silence and privilege of official histories. The screening aimed to resist official narratives by sharing and expanding Latin American visions in Europe.
By the end of the month the call received around 130 proposals from 14 Latin American countries. From the short list of selected artists some have been invited personally for their long trajectory committed with the topics of the screening.
From September 25 - 30, 2017 ANALCO PROJECT will show at Third Space the outcome of its curatorial call in the form of screenings and workshops.
