Be careful with each other, so we can be dangerous together

Be careful with each other, so we can be dangerous together is an ongoing curatorial research on notions of care, social affect and mutual support across a spectrum of visual and cultural practices. It was recently initiated through the program La Práctica in Beta Local (San Juan, PR), as an entry point from where to investigate the types of affective regimes set in motion by different artistic communities and economies. Drawing from an array of feminist practices, theory on the commons as well as pedagogies, archives and artworks, the project seeks to devise how affective apparatuses are created and activated throughout different artistic, curatorial and institutional gestures – what affects do they unleash, and how, in turn, notions such as care, support, vulnerability or glamour articulate them. The presentation will share the initial status of the research, and the materials collected so far.

Julia Morandeira Arrizabalaga is an independent curator and researcher, based in Madrid. Her practice deals with issues of geography and coloniality, production and exhibition apparatuses in art and culture, and their inscription as sites of knowledge production. She is part of the artistic collective Magnetic Declination and of the research group Península. Recent projects include Cannibal House, at the Cultural Centre of Spain in Costa Rica; Canibalia, at the Kadist Foundation in Paris; Until lions have their own historians, with Magnetic Declination at Matadero Madrid; Broadening the battlefield at the Cultural Centre Montehermoso, and Miralda’s Twin Tastes & Tongues at 9th Shanghai Biennale. Morandeira holds a BA in Humanities from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, and an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University College of London. At the moment she is part of La Práctica in Beta Local, Puerto Rico.
