About this Event: 

The artistic lab is based on the methodology created by Pablo Gershanik. Intimate Models is interested in exploring resilience in art. Rooted in the political events that impacted Argentinian society in the 70's and in the idea of reconstruction through the lens of art, psychology and human rights, the process of “modeling” arises. Intimate Models becomes a transposition tool (creation of mechanisms that allow for intermediation between the artist and a painful experience) to work with cases of social trauma that a subject, a family or a community has suffered in recent years (war, attacks, human rights struggles, migration, isolation, etc.), trying to contribute, through an artistic approach, to the resilience of our people.


The workshop will be a time of exploration and creation and will focus on three aspects:


1. "Representation". Through different dynamics and exercises, the team will find the universe that makes up each Intimate Model.


2. "Memory". Each participant will develop an audiovisual story based on a personal experience. Although each process can be purely individual, the project seeks to create dialogues and exchanges in which each project can then feed off work of the other participants.


3. "Social Relevance". Share the audiovisual projects with the public.

Cost: $120
