HOW TO BUILD UP A COLLECTIVE IN COVID TIMES

How to build up a collective in Covid times

Begin 2020 nam The Post Collective (POCO), een groep vluchtelingen, asielzoekers, sans papiers en medeplichtigen de dappere stap om, met de steun van Kunsthal Gent binnen het residentieprogramma, te speculeren over hoe ze zouden kunnen samenwerken op een co-creatieve, solidaire manier. En dit in het besef dat ze verschillende juridische en sociale statuten/rechten, creatieve praktijken, culturen, talen, leeftijden, geslachten, behoeften, privileges, kansen en uitsluitingen binnen de samenleving hebben.

In maart 2020 werd de samenleving hard getroffen door de covidepandemie, die vooral toesloeg op de kruispunten waarop het POCO zich bevond. Veel kansen werden ontnomen en daarmee ook de mogelijkheid om samen te werken in dezelfde ruimte. Ze pasten hun aanpak aan en vonden nieuwe manieren uit om verbonden en betrokken te blijven, terwijl ze fysiek op afstand stonden.

In deze 1,5 uur durende presentatie zal POCO hun ervaringen delen met het publiek, op het gebied van het maken van kunst, organiseren, communiceren, experimenteren met online ontmoetingsplatformen, samen solidair staan in eenzaamheid, angst, instabiliteit, gezondheid en ziekte, juridische processen, en de altijd dringende rekeningen voor de supermarkt en huisvesting.

Door middel van onze meerstemmige en meertalige verhalen, gebruikmakend van een samengaan van verschillende media (illustratie, verhalen vertellen, geluidspoëzie, video, fotografie, muziek) willen we binnen deze presentatie een omgeving creëren die een discussie met het publiek mogelijk maakt over het belang van het initiëren van vormen van collectiviteit in tijden van covid, op lokaal en mondiaal niveau.

The Post Collective bestaat uit: Mirra Markhaeva (Boerjatië), Sawsan Maher (Syrië), Marcus Bergner (Australië), Elli Vassalou (Griekenland), Mohammed Tawfiq (Irak), Mahammed Alimu (Somalië) en Hooman Jalidi (Iran).
