Who has made this decision? I don't know how to deal with this violence. Why not me? I can not. They will not let me. I do not know how to do it. I need you to choose me, I must do better than her. I will dedicate more hours. Can we continue to trust them? She is not responsible. My work is much more interesting. Does not understand me. Did not tell me. If I name her, the attention will be on her, and I want her to attend to me. I deserved it. I'm missing possibility references. He says that my work is not art, that it is something else. He says that since I'm not an artist, I don't count. He doesn't consider me a professional, I don't know if I want to be one. Who knows about this stuff? Couldn't we do it together? I don't know if it's possible to organise us, or if it works for anything. I don't know where to protest. No one protects me? Nothing comes here. I depend on you. Why haven't I heard that? We always end up in the same power struggles. I feel they are instrumentalizing me. I don't trust the institutions and structures I know. We have lost the road map. Perhaps we have isolated too much the idea of art, of artist. We have lost bellows. Legal frameworks do not help us. Who cares about art and culture? This is unsustainable. We work with such powerful ideas and with so few tools to activate them among us ... I don't feel respected. I get frustrated. I envy her. It fills me with rage. I feel alone. I need help. I feel like I'm self-exploding. I don't have time to think about what I'm doing. I'm very tired ...
This November 27th, in the afternoon, we will activate a long-term process of critical discussion about good practices, artistic work and political action of the PAAC.
Event open to all the public interested in participating in the dialogue and in listening.
There will be a piscolabis!
With the support of the Generalitat de Calalunya / Dept de Cultura and Ajuntament de Barcelona / ICUB.
