The 2020 Edition Fold and Territory addresses both terms. The meeting is framed as an urgent action to create a transformation space that leads us to rethink the concepts of territory and humanity in times of crisis. “We have folded and unfolded ourselves in tangible and intangible territories, with the intensity of social, political and economic revolutions forming cultural traits that were accelerated by the pandemic”, explains Enrique Rivera, president of the CChV. "Any action that does not contribute to this transformation process becomes a distraction. In its fifth edition, this meeting seeks to deepen and put into practice forms of collective work between arts, sciences, as well as analogue and digital ecosystems”, he adds.
The guests will be the selected artists of the first edition Nicole L’Huillier, Alan Bogana and the recent winners of the second edition Patricia Domínguez and Chloé Delarue with Mónica Bello, Curator and Head of Arts at CERN. The discussion will be moderated by Enrique Rivera, president of CChV. The panellists will present the origins, development and future of the Simetría residency programme, as well as the experience of the first participants, and the challenges for the next edition. This talk also seeks to integrate the knowledge of a community that engages with essential questions and current scientific research that expand our notion of reality.
