a permacuratorial, artistic experiment
The far° fabrique et festival des arts vivants Nyon team – in collaboration with permaculture practitioners, artists and scientists – draw inspiration from permaculture in order to reflect on and make changes to how they work. In the form of a laboratory, we will start by getting our hands dirty and then transpose some permaculture principles to how we organise far°. We hope to develop a new collective practice, both concrete and symbolic in nature, not only in our curatorial work, but also in our support for artists.
By drawing inspiration from ethical care, a concept that underpins permaculture, we hope to rethink and reformulate the way in which we work and our activity cycles in order to integrate matters of environmental and social sustainability into, as well as leave a noticeable, intellectual and artistic mark on, how far° is run.
We will share our investigations and visions in the form of a manifesto, detailing a permacultural institution that other teams can draw inspiration from, in order transform the world of performing arts together.
