A+ Exercicis Subversius
ACVic / Sala d'Art Jove
Altering, disturbing, shifting, subverting the state of urban, social and cultural dysfunctionality of the Tannery district of Vic, a valuable architectural heritage complex: this is the intention behind a series of exercises in educational mediation, taking collaborative artistic practices as our tools.
Mediation thus becomes an opportunity to connect institutions, groups and agents which use action and negotiation to link up their needs and interests with the social and cultural potentialities offered by the space. Therefore, Exercicis Subversius (Subversive Exercises) should make it possible to activate the debate on the role of citizens in the urban regeneration of abandoned spaces and in the management of the cultural heritage.
We work, imagine and experiment based on the subversive idea of a nomadic, ephemeral community resulting from the ambiguous, undefined and expectant condition of this neighbourhood with no residents.
ACVic, in conjunction with the Sala d’Art Jove of the Government of Catalonia, presents the cultural mediation project chosen in the Art Jove 2016 call for proposals, A+ Exercicis Subversius
