Por que fazer arte se falta comida? é a pergunta que guia as ativações da Universidad Desconocida (UU) na Metacozinha durante o mês de maio. Começando no dia 03 de maio, das 13h às 15h, o coletivo propõe a cozinha aberta para o bairro com refeições feitas a partir da coleta da xepa da feira na rua Antônio Coruja, no Bom Retiro. 


Os almoços são oferecidos gratuitamente pelo coletivo, com possibilidade de levar para viagem (até 2 pratos por pessoa) ou comer no espaço da cozinha. A ação se encerra quando as panelas estiverem vazias.




Universidad Desconocida (UU) é um coletivo anônimo anti-disciplinar de resgate, discussão e criação de epistemologias que propõem curto-circuitar as normas. Suas ativações acontecem cada vez que um membro a invoca, e incluem transmissões da rádio Ânsia e cozinhas acidentais. As ações da UU permanecem desconhecidas até o momento que acontecem e seguem valores flutuantes como:


- O anonimato é uma ferramenta poderosa;

- O esgotamento é matéria-prima;

- A propriedade intelectual e a inovação são ficções;

- Não há divisões entre sujeito e objeto: essas funções são sempre intercambiáveis;

- A transformação do corpo individual transforma o corpo coletivo;

- A Universidad Desconocida ignora leituras políticas normativas;

- A escuta é vulgar e a fala intransponível;

- Todo alimento é uma divindade e toda divindade um alimento;

- O aprendizado não é o antropoceno.



O projeto de ativação da Universidad Desconocida na Casa do Povo conta com o apoio do PROAC Território das Artes. 

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.
