Meetings On The Common Ground
After participating in an artistic residency at Sorø Kunstmuseum, Denmark, with the danish artist Jette Ellgaard, invited by the Participatory Arts for Invisible Communities, I wrote some reflections on common grounds and communication between different peoples. The writing is based on the practices of Nyamnyam and Deriva Mussol, as well as the metaphores of a universal communication made up by the american matematician and machine translation pioneer Warren Weaver, and the thoughts of the feminist indian philosopher Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.
I entitled the reflections “Meetings On The Common Ground” and they were published as a chapter of the book Participatory Arts for Invisible Communities (2019), edited by Irena Sertić, published in Zagreb by Omnimedia with the support of Creative Europe Programme (EU).
