Pre-biennial Manifesta 15 Participant: Diversorium Open Call For Participation
Drawing by Antonio Gagliano, Diversorium party, Sala Paral·lel 62, 9 November 2023.
Diversorium is a collective that aims to explore the cultural and social meaning of difference through new forms of cooperation, interaction and connection between people by creating spaces of celebration and encounter open to all.
In the framework of the pre-biennial research for Manifesta 15, Diversorium investigates the evolution of special education schools focusing on the case of the Vil·la Joana school.
The Vil·la Joana archives rereading club, proposed by Diversorium together with the artist Jaume Ferrete, invites us to collectively approach the pedagogical, diagnostic and scientific-technical documents produced by the centre to bring them up to date, and to imagine their possible future by emphasising the tension between the positive elements of the school's pedagogy and the lack of socialisation of its pupils.
Diversorium is calling for people or collectives interested in joining them to participate in the re-reading club in a speculative, playful and somatic way. If you want to join the "Vil·la Joana Archives Re-reading Club" click here for more information.
