Strategies Of Failure
This was a two-day public event comprising of 25 talks and performances, organised collectively and derived from discussions around the issue of Failure. Gathering interlocutors from different areas of knowledge at the Museu de Arte da Pampulha, the event approached failure as constituent element for reflexion and materialisation, taken from a critical perspective in contemporary art and theory.
The project resulted from a one-year postgraduate discipline at the Fine Art School of UFMG, called “Laboratory of dialogue as practice”, offered by Mabe Bethônico. The working group elaborated its core discussions and connected collaborators and guests. Smaller events took place along the year of work, staged in different venues.
