Basque curator Haizea Barcenilla is currently performing, until December 31, an artistic residence in Tokyo, within the framework of the collaborative program created by AIT and Tabakalera - with the support of the Etxepare Basque Institute-, for the exchange of Basque and Japanese commissioners.

On Wednesday December 21 she will offer a talk on the idea of the public and the commons in relation to art practice and art curating which leads to her ongoing research developed as part of her residence at AIT. Her research consists to analyze the ideas of the public and the commons in Japan, especially in relation to the concept of performativity.

At the presentation, Barcenilla particularly picks and introduces the project "Andrekale" produced and curated under "the New Patrons program", as an example of collaborative practice reflecting upon several themes chosen by participants such as urban space, history writing, gender and city empowerment.

Throughout the residency, Barcenilla asks; Can this performative idea be linked to the commons and understood as a social relationship around a resource or a knowledge? What is the role of art and of other cultural practices in the creation of these performative moments of publicness? During her talk, she shares with us some introductory ideas to develop these possibilities to expand further.
