PLASTIC HAS NO FRONTIERS

Basurama and Ida-Marie Corell are cooperating together for a dress-installation performance.

The work deals with ​Sustainable Development Goal 16*​ and its connection to our global mass consumerism, our “plastic behaviour”, its effects on the loss of our individuality and tradition and its occurring global opposites movements such as cheap mass tourism and refugees.

We would like to ​invite the nearby living refugees​ to tell us their stories connected to plastic bags.

The plastic bag represents our global mass and spontaneous consumer society. While the global mass tourists and consumerist are still carrying plastic bags as trophies – ​plastic bags are the only and cheapest means of transportation for refugees​ crossing borders and the sea, carrying their last remaining personal goods.

Whether blessing or curse, cult or trash, loved or frowned upon, the plastic bag polarises and reflects our global consumer behaviour through its fleeting use and its ubiquity. While it is collected, on the one hand, strengthening status, creating an identity and cultural history, on the other hand, it has a destructive impact on aesthetics, culture and on animals, nature, and the environment.

*Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Without peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law – we cannot hope for sustainable development. We are living in a world that is increasingly divided. Some regions enjoy sustained levels of peace, security and prosperity, while others fall into seemingly endless cycles of conflict and violence. This is by no means inevitable and must be addressed. High levels of armed violence and insecurity have a destructive impact on a country’s development, affecting economic growth and often resulting in long-standing grievances that can last for generations. Sexual violence, crime, exploitation and torture are also prevalent where there is a conflict or no rule of law, and countries must take measures to protect those who are most at risk.

The SDGs aim to significantly reduce all forms of violence, and work with governments and communities to find lasting solutions to conflict and insecurity. Strengthening the rule of law and promoting human rights is key to this process, as is reducing the flow of illicit arms and strengthening the participation of developing countries in the institutions of global governance. (http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/ sustainable-development-goals/goal-16-peace-justice-and-strong-institutions.html) 20 Every minute, nearly 20 people are displaced as a result of conflict or persecution. At the end of 2016, the total number of forcibly displaced persons was 65.6 million.

10 million  There are also 10 million stateless people around the world who have been denied nationality and related rights. (http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/sustainable-development-goals/goal-16- peace-justice-and strong-institutions.html)

Basurama​ is an artist collective dedicated to research, cultural and environmental creation and production whose practice revolves around the reflection of trash, waste and reuse in all its formats and possible meanings. It was born in the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM) in the year 2001 and, since then, it has evolved and acquired new shapes. Our aim is to study those phenomena inherent in the massive production of real and virtual trash in the consumer society, providing different points of view on the subject that might generate new thoughts and attitudes. We find gaps in these processes of production and consumption that not only raise questions about the way we manage our resources but also about the way we think, we work, we perceive reality.

Far from trying to offer a single manifest to be used as a manual, Basurama has compiled a series of multiform opinions and projects, not necessarily resembling each other, which explore different areas related to trash. We try to establish subtle connections between them so that they may give rise to unexpected reactions. We are not worried about its lack of unity; moreover, we believe it as evocative and potentially subversive values. Besides the visual arts in all its formats

 

PERFORMANCE

During the Belgrade International Week of Architecture (BINA), artist Ida-Marie Corell and collective Basurama will produce an „urban“ dress out of plastic bags, which will be worn by the artist during the Night of the Museums, on May 18th from 4 pm in front of the Cultural Centre of Belgrade.

This dress will be partially made in collaboration with local volunteers who wish to participate in the workshop, together with a group of refugees who reside in Belgrade at the moment.

 

​WORKSHOPS

The first workshop will be held on May 16th from 10 am to 2 pm in the Cultural Centre Magacin (Kraljevića Marka 4-8).

The second workshop will be held on May 17th from 10 am to 12 pm in the Cultural Centre of Belgrade together with the students of primary school “Jajinci” from Belgrade.

The final result will be a large dress of approximate dimensions of 20x 20 meters, made in white and blue colors (United Nations colors).

To participate in the workshop it is not necessary to have any previous skills, since the task itself is quite simple. The important thing is to want to participate in the project and share time with other people.

It is not a compulsory condition to participate in the workshop, but it will be appreciated if the participants bring white and blue plastic bags to the workshop. There is no problem in that they are a bit broken or that they have some type of drawing or logo.

The main working language during the workshop will be English, although German and Spanish can be managed too.

PLASTIKA NEMA GRANICE

Kolektiv Basurama i Ida-Marie Corell ostvariće saradnju  na izradi haljine-instalacije, koja će biti prikazana na performansu u Beogradu. Ovaj rad se bavi ciljem održivog razvoja 16* i njegovom povezanošću sa globalnim masovnim konzumerizmom, našim „plastičnim ponašanjem“, njegovim uticajem na gubitak naše individualnosti i tradicije i na rastuće globalne pokrete kao što su jeftini masovni turizam i izbeglištvo.

Plastična kesa predstavlja naše globalno masovno i spontano potrošačko društvo. Dok pristalice globalnog masovnog turizma i konzumerizma i dalje nose plastične kese kao trofeje, plastične kese su jedino i najjeftinije prevozno sredstvo za izbeglice koje prelaze granice i mora, noseći lične stvari koje su im preostale.

Bilo da je blagoslov ili prokletstvo, bilo da se smatra kultom ili smećem, bilo da se voli ili mrzi, plastična kesa polarizuje i odražava ponašanje potrošača u celom svetu svojom prolaznom upotrebom i sveprisutnošću. Dok, s jedne strane, ona jača status, stvarajući identitet i kulturnu istoriju, s druge strane ima destruktivan uticaj na estetiku, kulturu, životinje, prirodu i životnu sredinu.

*Cilj 16: Mir, pravda i snažne institucije. Bez mira, stabilnosti, ljudskih prava i delotvorne vlasti zasnovane na vladavini prava  ne možemo se nadati održivom razvoju. Živimo u svetu koji se sve više deli. Dok se u nekim delovima sveta neprestano održavaju mir, sigurnost i prosperitet, u drugim delovima sveta vladaju naizgled beskonačni ciklusi sukoba i nasilja. Ova situacija ni na koji način nije neizbežna i mora se rešavati. Visok stepen oružanog nasilja i nesigurnosti uništava razvoj zemlje, ugrožava privredni rast i često dovodi do dugotrajnih nepravdi koje se mogu protezati kroz više generacija. Seksualno nasilje, zločini, eksploatacija i tortura preovlađuju tamo gde vladaju sukobi i bezakonje, tako da zemlje moraju preduzeti mere da zaštite najugroženije. Cilj održivog razvoja je da znatno smanji sve oblike nasilja i da sarađuje sa vladama i zajednica radi nalaženja trajnih rešenja za sukobe i nesigurnost. Jačanje vladavine prava i promovisanje ljudskih prava ključni su u ovom procesu, baš kao i suzbijanje tokova nezakonitog oružja i jačanje razvoja.

Basurama je umetnička grupa posvećena kulturnom i ekološkom istraživanju, stvaranju i produkciji, a njen rad se zasniva na proučavanju smeća, otpadaka i recikliranog materijala u svim oblicima i mogućim značenjima. Nastala je na Arhitektonskom fakultetu u Madridu (ETSAM) 2001. godine, i od tada se razvila i poprimila nove oblike. Cilj joj je proučavanje fenomena koji čine neodvojivi deo masovne proizvodnje stvarnog i virtuelnog smeća u potrošačkom društvu, i razmatranje različitih gledišta o toj temi iz kojih mogu proisteći nova razmišljanja i stavovi.

PERFORMANS

U okviru Beogradske internacionalne nedelje arhitekture (BINA), umetnica Ida-Mari Korel i umetničkii kolektiv Basurama će napraviti „urbanu” haljinu od plastičnih kesa, koju će umetnica nositi za vreme održavanja Noći muzeja, 18. maja od 19h ispred Kulturnog centra Beograda.

Haljina će delimično biti napravljena u saradnji sa lokalnim stanovništvom i izbeglicama koje trenutno borave u Beogradu, odnosno svima koji budu zainteresovani da uzmu učešće u radionici.

RADIONICE

Prva radionica će biti održana 16. maja od 10 do 14h u Kulturnom centru Magacin , Kraljevića Marka 4-8.

Za učešće u radionici nisu potrebne posebne veštine, samo želja da se provede vreme sa drugim ljudima i učestvuje u kolektivnom procesu stvaranja. Bilo bi poželjno da učesnici prikupe i ponesu sa sobom bele i plave plastične kese (nije problem ukoliko su malo pocepane ili ako imaju logo/crtež na sebi), od kojih će se praviti haljina, u bojama Ujedinjenih nacija.

Druga radionica biće održana 17. maja od 10 do 12h u Kulturnom centru Beograda, sa učenicima OŠ “Jajinci” iz Beograda.

Radni jezici radionica su engleski, nemački i španski, ali po potrebi će biti  obezbeđen i prevod i na srpski jezik.

Video performansa možete pogledati ovde.
