This is a Radical Intention

Our projects promote a synergy between subjectivities by creating collaborative working groups that bring forth a common critical reflection.

D_CAMP 2014: AMY FRANCESCHINI program and participants

Schermata 2014-02-11 alle 10.20.34A week of decompression, communal living and group working at the end of the summer, before the business of work pick up. During the week participants will experience theoretical reflections and discussions by taking part in daily excursions, situations of conviviality and sociability, and take care of everyday group life through collective tasks. D_Camp 2014 visiting artist is Amy Franceschini (Future Farmers). Working on the boundaries between art, activism and community organizing, Franceschini proposes a special program for D_Camp 2014: Bread Kneads Hands takes rural rituals specifically connected with bread production, as a focus and a starting point to debate such notions as collectivity and communality.

D-Camp 2014 has received the support of Middlesex University, London and has activated an exchange with The Luminary, St Louis.

Program – Bread Kneads Hands

Host artist, Amy Franceschini will be decompressing from an intensive session of production on her project Flatbread Society, a public bakehouse and farm in Oslo, Norway and a Site for Rural Regeneration, a tree house meeting space and exchange radio station at Pollinaria in Aburzzo, Italy. Both of these durational projects draw from fading agrarian practices and as a means to create new spatial and social engagements. Embeded in this current work is an inquiry into the rituals and lore connected to rural life and the conundrum of preservation vs. practice. Amy will share her experiences of each of these projects as they relate to an ethos of what she terms Prototype as Practice.This week together will use the ancient craft of baking bread and its ecology of practices; baking, farming, milling, oven building, forestry…  as a focal point to research notions of communing, convening, collectivity, ritual, everyday and radition. Participants will explore their own work through tactile forms inquiry, readings, excursions and performative actions. Excursions include visits to ethnographic museums, a search for traces of community ovens / home baking and grain production/ milling.

Radical Intention lancia Decompression Gathering Summer Camp 2014

Summer Camp-2014: una settimana di decompressione, vita comune e lavoro di gruppo alla conclusione dell’estate e prima dell’inizio dell’attività lavorativa invernale. Visiting artist di questa terza edizione è Amy Franceschini artista che lavora ai confini tra arte, attivismo e community projects. Con il titolo di Break Kneats Hands (scorri per il programma), Amy Franceschini attivera’ un dibattito sui rituali rurali connessi alla produzione del pane, per una riflessione più ampia sulle nozioni di collettivita’ e vita in comune. D-Camp 2014 ha ricevuto il sostegno di Middlesex University, London e ha attivato uno scambio con The Luminary , St Louis.

Programma – Bread Kneads Hands

Visiting Artist Amy Franceschini decomprimera’ da un’intensa sessione di produzione ai suoi due progetti Flatbread Society – un laboratorio di panetteria pubblica e una fattoria in Oslo, Norvegia – e Site for Rural Regeneration – una casa sull’albero, spazio d’incontro e stazione radio a Pollinaria in Abruzzo, Italia. Entrambi questi progetti a lungo termine traggono spunto dalle pratiche agrarie come mezzo per creare forme partecipative spaziali e sociali. Il fulcro di questi due lavori è un’indagine sui riti e le tradizioni legate alla vita rurale ma soprattutto sulla preservazione di pratiche lavorative antiche. Amy condividerà con i partecipanti le proprie esperienze per la definizione di un’etica di quello che essa stessa definisce come Prototype as Practice. In particolare in questa settimana insieme, si utilizzerà l’antico mestiere del pane e delle sue pratiche – la cottura, la semina del granturco, la produzione di farina, la costruzione del forno, la silvicoltura – come punto di partenza per indagare nozioni quali la vita in comune, il lavoro collettivo e i rituali di vita quotidiana e radizione. I partecipanti potranno esplorare il proprio lavoro attraverso letture, escursioni, azioni performative. Escursioni nel territorio includeranno visite a musei etnografici, la ricerca di tracce di forni comunitari, di luoghi che producono dolci fatti in casa e farine artigianali.
