CO-LAB EDITIONS performance art program
Co-Lab Editions is a project by Márcio Carvalho that facilitates collaborations between artists and other fields of knowledge.
The program was initiated in 2011 by Márcio Carvalho in collaboration with Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung (director and founder of Savvy Contemporary).
Between 2011 and 2014 the project presented twelve collaborations, made by 28 artists from four different continents and a final publication. It was indeed an energetic and innovative investigation fostering new dialogues about performance, collaboration, collective and individual memory, that is about to take one more step forward.
The 2016 program will be made in collaboration with Liveart.dk organization. It will give special focus to the relations between performance and memory by analyzing the various aspects of remembering and forgetting as two sides of a process that shapes our collective thinking, experience and imagination. Eight international artists will spend a month of residency each to collaborate with eight Danish researchers from different Danish public institutions.
