Community & Co-Living with Octopus Collective
We want to create in a partial area within the 5.000 m2 of Hangar X a self-organized space and a community with co-living structures that allow for the emergence of diverse ways of “here and now” of shared artistic practice. That involves long-term and short-term artistic residencies, studio and exhibition spaces, open stages, learning programs, workshops etc. beyond the modern reproduction of colonial-capitalist realities. We understand artistic practice as a constant process of unfolding desires born from resonances within our bodies to decolonize our unconscious. We want to create a playground to awaken and follow these inner movements, a communal space open to people of diverse backgrounds, disciplines and theoretical and practical approaches. A space of learning and creation free to be used by everyone who is willing to critically engage with modern realities (created and reproduced), everyone who is willing to share the questions and findings of the research done on site and who invests back into the structure and development of the space itself. Octopus wants to open and hold this space by creating a network of artists who engage in artistic creation/research outside the logics of "artistic production" and propose frameworks that understand contemporary creation from a collective and critical perspective.
