Collective Signatures hits Formentera

Exposicio collective signatureFormentera's departments of culture, education and patrimony are backing Collective Signatures, a cultural initiative with the subtitle Letters from Formentera.

Collective Signatures and the “itinerant residency” it proposes artists and curators descend on Formentera for two weeks from April 11. Devised as a way to promote reflection on the cultural questions facing contemporary society, the programme is also aimed at encouraging the individuals who decide to write and create art, alone or as part of a group and in ways that are creative or experimental.

Participants in the geographically-themed and concept-driven project will be tasked with shaping a new, unique and creative map of Formentera and producing a genre-spanning body of text focussed on the island.

Pooling experience
On Friday, April 20, at 10.30pm, a final evening of readings and performance will take place at Sa Panxa, giving participants the opportunity to share lessons and reflections arising from the residency.

One final undertaking involves sharing some of the texts and audiovisual materials produced over the course of the project. The accompanying material will serve as the basis for a range of print and online publications, exhibitions and academic research projects which are on the horizon.
