Sweet Home 2018: ¡A la mesa!
Wednesday 6 June 2018, from 6.30 pm to 8.30pm
Medialab Prado. Meeting point: Medialab Prado patio
¡A la mesa! is a ludic work encounter of collective critical thinking, utopia and alienation organized in the framework of the Sweet Home residency programme in which eight artists, curators and international mediators stay in the homes of cultural agents from Madrid.
We invite the residents, hosts and other local cultural agents to an informal and, why not, playful dialogue, around the question of how to generate contexts of possibility - new conditions for new things to happen, dealing with the questions of how to generate communities of learning, action and reflection.
We want to share strategies and formulas with each other in ¡A la mesa!. If you want to participate write us (places are limited).
We will play cards in groups focusing on one of these four themes
1. Is it possible being non productive in this era of post industrial capitalism? Now that almost any relation can be capitalized, is there a way out? Croupier: Gloria Durán (English table)
2. When collaboration is confused with instrumentality: artists, artivists, activists. Croupier: Andrés Senra
3. Survival strategies: esotericism, eroticism and new isms. Croupier: Raisa Maudit (English table)
4. Artist vs. Cultural Manager. from independency to Institutionalization. Croupier Mario Cru

Context without a framework:
The Sweet Home research residency programme was born in 2013 in response to:
The need to generate contexts of exchange with other cultural agents from abroad and the scarcity of programmes of institutional artistic residences linked to the local field.
Today, we see Sweet Home no longer as a response to the lack of infrastructures and support programmes for contemporary creation, but to recover spaces that are not institutionalized (or regulated), and to propose new ways of doing and relating in everyday life.
This edition of Sweet Home is supported by the Creation Grant of the Madrid City Council
