mutirão
1/1

No contexto da exposição Voz ativa: Biblioteca social, a artista Mariana Lanari organiza um mutirão com o objetivo de criar um mapeamento coletivo da biblioteca da Casa do Povo.  Na sequência acontece uma conversa sobre o futuro da biblioteca e bibliotecas do futuro, um dos eixos de pesquisa da artista para o Arquivo Vivo.



Programação


14h às 18h

Mutirão de (des)organização do rizoma de livros

Junto com a artista Mariana Lanari, um mutirão de leitores irá acelerar o mapeamento coletivo da Biblioteca da Casa do Povo. A separação por idioma e estado de conservação soma-se à critérios menos objetivos, a serem articulados coletivamente pelo grupo. A ideia é estabelecer novas relações dentro do acervo da Casa. Inscrições AQUI.


18h às 19h30 

Conversa aberta: Precisamos falar sobre a biblioteca

A partir das percepções despertadas pelo trabalho realizado durante a tarde e pelas discussões em torno da ideia contemporânea de biblioteca, faremos uma roda de conversa com leitores, bibliotecários, professores, agentes culturais, arquitetos, programadores e todos os demais interessados sobre o tema do acesso à informação na era digital.


19h30 

Remix de leituras

As leituras registradas nas últimas semanas pela exposição serão remixadas pela artista e os participantes são convidados a incluir suas vozes no arquivo e na trilha sonora do trabalho. 

Casa do Povo's programming expands the notion of culture, incorporating a large array of activities beyond artistic practices - from health and caring to community issues. The code of colors, filters and tags on the website helps to navigate through this entanglement of people and initiatives. Porous, mutant and critical, the programming allows the institution to structure itself without becoming rigid, to reinvent itself without growing precarious, to internationalize without giving up its local relevance, that is, in order to experiment with other forms of existence.

Regular activities

Courses
We strive to offer a lineup of courses that pique interest in the neighborhood and in Casa do Povo’s groups in residence, based on original and accessible practices (for those who offer, those who welcome and those who attend).


Study groups
In dialogue with the institution's axes, the study groups have various operational modes, some focused on internal processes, discussions and readings and others capable of overlapping into public events programming.

Projects

Commissioned works
Casa do Povo invites artists to develop new works, adapting its physical structure and guaranteeing the full operational existence of each project held here.


Publications
Each publication is understood as an extension of the projects developed and as a part of the events schedule.


Platforms
Combining processes and results, discourses and actions, artistic and academic work, Casa do Povo promotes encounters based on specific themes according to the urgent issues of the day.

Hosted events

Groups in residence can promote public activities that become part of the events schedule. Deliberately discontinuous and fluid, these activities establish close dialogues with the institution's work axes and help make Casa do Povo larger than it is, overflowing with community life.


Projects and proposals can be sent to info@casadopovo.org.br for assessment. At the same time, with the intention of encouraging this movement, an annual open call dedicated exclusively to collective practices has been launched.

Nossa Voz
Nossa Voz

Nossa Voz is a publication by Casa do Povo. Literally “Our Voice,” the newspaper existed alongside the institution from 1947 to 1964, with texts in Yiddish and Portuguese and an editorial profile aligned with left wing ideals. It was shut down by the military dictatorship, which forced editor-in-chief Hersch Schechter and other contributors into exile. Relaunched in 2014, it continues to dialogue with its historical premises while rethinking its editorial directives.


The editorial committee relies on representatives from a wide variety of areas, meeting regularly to discuss issues concerning the city, memory and artistic practices according to the current political situation.

The publication is distributed free of charge and can be obtained at Casa do Povo during hours of operation, at partner institutions and some commercial establishments in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro in São Paulo.
