¿BORDERS? (Granice)

Jeśli spojrzymy na kilka ostatnich rozdziałów w podręcznikach historii, Europa wydaje się książkowym przykładem dążenia do zjednoczenia i likwidacji granic. Wystarczy wspomnieć o wydarzeniach takich, jak takich jak upadek muru berlińskiego w 1989 r., rozpad ZSRR w roku 1991, lub wejście w życie Traktatu z Maastricht i utworzenie Unii Europejskiej w 1993 roku. Pod koniec XX wieku kontynent ten pragnął, a przynajmniej tak się wydawało, ulec globalizacji. Kilka lat temu, niemiecki polityk i mąż stanu Helmut Kohl powiedział pamiętne słowa: Europa nie może być fortecą, która będzie nas chronić przed innymi, musi być otwarta".

Słowa te niosły zalążek bliższego i bardziej dostępnego świata. Wyraźnie widać, że postęp globalizacji, cyfrowej transformacji oraz pojawienie się nowych technologii przyczyniły się do likwidacji (a przynajmniej zatarcia) wielu granic geograficznych i mentalnych: mamy więcej okazji poznawania kultur odmiennych od naszej własnej, wiele możliwości rozmowy z przyjaciółmi i członkami rodziny przebywającymi w geograficznie odległych miejscach, a także lepszy dostęp do informacji i wiedzy zdobywanej tysiące mil od nas. Pojawiło się także więcej możliwości zdalnej sprzedaży i zakupu produktów w odległych krajach,  widoków na pracę w innych krajach, oraz opcji szybkiego przemieszczania się z jednego miejsca do drugiego. Z perspektywy osób najbardziej optymistycznie nastawionych,  Ziemia stała się globalną wioską, gdzie wszystko znajduje się w zasięgu jednego kliknięcia myszką, lub kilkugodzinnej podróży lotniczej.

Nie dajmy się jednak zwieść. Nie wszystko jest idealne. Czasy, w jakich przyszło nam żyć, z pozoru tak otwarte, mają swoje drugie oblicze: pomimo wszelkich korzyści jakie niesie ze sobą globalizacja i cyfryzacja, wydaje się, iż coraz więcej różnego rodzaju przeszkód, ograniczeń i podziałów uniemożliwia nam porozumienie. Wystarczy otworzyć gazetę, by uświadomić sobie, że "świat cofnął się w czasie", jak to określił Alexis Rodríguez Rata, pisząc: w ostatnich latach w mediach ukazywały się rozliczne wiadomości związane z ruchami nacjonalistycznymi, ksenofobicznymi przywódcami, nowymi murami budowanymi pomiędzy krajami i kontynentami, odrzuceniem imigrantów i uchodźców, oraz wzrostem wydatków na ochronę granic. Powiększa się przepaść pomiędzy ludźmi bogatymi a biednymi (narzucając granice gospodarcze i społeczne); rosną też różnice natury ideologicznej i religijnej (tworząc granice psychologiczne). Również wjazd na teren pewnych krajów staje się trudniejszy (rosną bariery granic geograficznych).

Jak stwierdził jakiś czas temu Ferran Montesa (naczelny 'Le Monde Diplomatique"w języku hiszpańskim): „nadal mówimy o tej globalnej wiosce, ale prawda jest taka, że granic jest więcej niż kiedykolwiek. W XXI wieku buduje się więcej murów oporowych niż kiedykolwiek wcześniej”. Wszystko to pokazuje, że żyjemy wśród ciągłej walki przeciwieństw: globalizacja kontra lokalizm; internacjonalizacja kontra nacjonalizm; integracja kontra odrzucenie; jedność przeciw fragmentacji, otwarcie przeciw zamknięciu.

Poprzez niniejsze otwarte zaproszenie, pragniemy usłyszeć wypowiedzi różnych artystów w odniesieniu do pojęcia granic, szczególnie w dzisiejszej Europie: Czym w ich odczuciu są granice na tym kontynencie? Jak powinniśmy z nimi postępować? Jakie granice są najbardziej niebezpieczne? W jaki sposób wpływają one na ludzką jednostkę i jej interakcję ze światem. Jak radzą sobie z nimi obywatele pierwszej i drugiej kategorii? Jak możemy żyć na kontynencie, który jest coraz bardziej otwarty, a jednocześnie bardziej zamknięty niż kiedykolwiek?

MUSEO DE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEO ESPAÑOL, PATIO HERRERIANO

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Culture Liverpool – Liverpool City Council   www.cultureliverpool.co.uk

Culture Liverpool was established after the resounding success of 2008, in which the City of Liverpool delivered the most successful European Capital of Culture year to date.

Since then our aim has been to continually build upon this success through championing culture across the Liverpool City Region through all of our services and sub-brands, all of which are listed here.

As Liverpool City Council’s cultural service, we have continued to build on our world class reputation, using culture as the driving force for the regeneration of the whole city.

The City’s determination to build its brand on an international stage is constantly gathering pace and we invite you to join us on this journey and fulfil the huge potential of Liverpool – “The World in One City”.

Bluecoat Arts Centre   www.thebluecoat.org.uk/

Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts, Bluecoat showcases talent across visual art, music, dance, live art and literature.

As the most historic building in Liverpool’s city centre, Bluecoat has four galleries. It houses a creative community of artists and businesses and runs a participation programme with local communities.

In March 2008, the revered arts centre re-opened after a £14 million re-development by Rotterdam architects Biq Architecten with a stronger mission than ever to engage, innovate and excel.

Bluecoat believes everyone can craft and be creative and it is our aim to provide a space where creativity can flourish and be shared.

Bluecoat provides a creative hub for people to meet, talk, work, perform, question, create, craft, display and enjoy themselves.  And a relaxing garden situated at the rear provides the ideal location to enjoy a beer, wine or soft drink in the summer. Bluecoat also has Explore, a set of free family craft activities taking place over the weekend.

Dating from the early 18th century, the building’s architectural importance is illuminated by its UNESCO world heritage and Grade One listed status.

Bluecoat has a rich artistic history. Augustus John was associated with Bluecoat and early exhibitions included the first Post Impressionists show, which came to Liverpool in 1911 following an earlier showing in London organised by critic Roger Fry. It featured works by Picasso, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Gauguin, exhibiting alongside British artists for the first time.

The building has an equally distinguished history in the performing arts, from visits by Stravinsky, Bartok and Britten, to leading jazz and rock players such as Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart and John Surman, to contemporary composers like Michael Nyman and Gavin Bryars, and dancer Michael Clark, or live literature from Doris Lessing, the Last Poets and Benjamin Zephania.

Yoko Ono had her first paid performance at Bluecoat in 1967, around the time that she met John Lennon. We were delighted when Yoko returned to the new performance space in 2008 for a special performance to celebrate the reopening of the building.

Bluecoat is now home to over 30 creative industries including artists, graphic designers, small arts organisations, craftspeople and retailers. Many of these are situated in the areas of the building which are not open to the public. Our longest standing occupier is Bluecoat Display Centre which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009 and sells the best in UK crafts.

The recent redevelopment, completed in 2008, saw the south east wing rebuilt however into a purpose built arts wing complete with four galleries hosting contemporary art created by international, national and local artists with the exhibitions changing approximately every two to three months.

Despite hosting such luminaries such as the fore mentioned Van Gogh and Picasso the building’screative heritage is not just about major figures. Many artists have presented their work here at an early stage in their career, including several, for instance, who went on to win the Turner Prize, whilst literally hundreds of artists and creative organisations have been supported in different ways at Bluecoat. Many more individuals have acknowledged a connection to the building, including George Melly, brought as a child to Sandon fancy dress parties, and Simon Rattle who came here for violin lessons.

With the new arts wing, reorganisation of interior spaces and access improvements, this represents the most significant change in Bluecoat’s long history. Alongside the physical changes to the building, Bluecoat now offers a different experience for people who use and visit the building to engage with art. Creativity, from production to consumption, will be at the heart of everything you experience at Bluecoat. Support from Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, North West Regional Development Agency and the European Regional Development Fund, and from trusts, foundations and donors, has enabled Bluecoat to transform itself into a building ready to face and survive the next 300 years.

Bluecoat is an arts venue that has built a substantial reputation for the work it has done and the way it has always changed to be the role model for its time.
