"Neither here nor there"

C3P proposal as host space for MDE 15 - Medellín International Art Encounter

With “Neither Here nor Allá” C3P seeks to analyze with three international residents the similarities and differences, with respect to the contexts and concepts that arise from activities managed independently and those managed under governmental or private institutions, depending on the culture, territories and the economy in contexts such as Latin America, Asia, Africa, Europe, the United States and Colombia.

Articulated by Guiddens and his definition of globalization -as the intensification of social relations on a transnational scale that link distant locations: “In such a way that local events are modeled by events that occurred many kilometers away and vice versa” - it is proposed for the MDE15 to involve three (3) artists, researchers and / or groups that have projects or cultural and artistic spaces that:

  • They create strategies focused on generating socio-cultural changes framed in the territories.

  • They recognize differentiated circuits of circulation of goods and people.

  • They articulate in their daily work the construction of spatial realities that reduce segregation.
