Concept and Direction by Patrícia Bateira
As first edition in Berlin the Young Curators Academy, hosted by Ong Keng Sen, Irina Szodruch and Erden Kosova, brought over 30 artists, thinkers, program producers together, who work at the crossings of art and activism, often under challenging political, social and economic conditions, to share their knowledge, reflect on and deepen their own practices from parallel experiences, and empower each other.
Patrícia Bateira was the artist invited to film and photograph the intersectional narratives of sharing processes and alternative belongings. The international gathering builds an artistic and activist platform for discovering alliances, exploring affinities, and consolidate solidarities.
Under the motto sharing, listening, enabling, activating, the YCA was part of the 4. Berliner Herbstsalon, at Maxim Gorki Theater.
