Co.R – Community of Research
Curated by Loretta Mesiti
The Research Community (Co.R), embodied in Altofest, is a permanent space for reflection and interdisciplinary research. This space includes researchers and scholars, conveyors of multiple perspectives and knowledge, who are invited to develop aesthetic, poetic and political queries raised by the fest. These experts collaborate in the creation of spaces for debate and reflective practices, through which the outline of a choral discourse takes shape and evolves along with Altofest.
The path inaugurated by the Co.R falls into various activities and practices that not only involve the community of the fest but also aim at preserving the memory of the relationships, the experiences and the processes to which Altofest gives rise.
The Journal: curated by Silvia Mei is published every Thursday. It outlines an aesthetic-theoretical guide for the community of the fest. The Journal contains contributions from the members of the Co.R and excerpts from the sources, which altogether offer different approaches to the theme “Inhabiting Future”.
The Agorà: curated by Loretta Mesiti and introduced by a guest look from the Co.R, is an open assembly that takes place every week on Thursday evening. An opportunity to gather for hosts and artists in residence, who are coming from two different geographical areas involved in the project. The theme of the assembly is the sharing and analysis of the experiences lived during the residency, interpreted in the light of the theme “Inhabiting Future”.
Voice Over: curated by Rosa Coppola; radio conversations with the artists held every Sunday morning. The artists in the program analyze their performances in dialogue with a guest member of the Co.R. The conversation is open to anyone to join in and broadcasted via web radio.
