unbreaken is a project that imbricates workshops sessions, performative interventions, frameworks and a process-oriented timeline in and out the doors of the residency during the last 8 weeks.
unbreaken is an invented formula, a constitutive organism made of overlapping movements and gestures related to unbroken (constant, endless, uninterrupted) and break(alter, crack, breach).
unbreaken is an embedded experience based on persistence and disruption practiced through a publication, an exhibition project and a program* hosted by the artists-in-residence. Together, they invite the audience to orbit different situations and events happening at L’Atelier-KSR and into public spaces, in order to exercise, perform and transmit their production. Through multiple entry point and mutabilities, the public is confronted with an experimental collaborative approach to a publication that exceeds its material boundaries and finds its selves taking over spaces, relationships and even dreams. Passages are channeled and activated through a stream of collisions and implosions in and around the space of the exhibition between September 13th to 19th.

AFFECT: Agora’s Program for Collaborative Artistic Practices in Berlin is a residency program with duration of 3 months. Seven to eight selected participants of various disciplines will develop a collaborative project under the subject of “Social Art Practice – where does art intersect with the social?” The outcome of the research and conclusion of AFFECT consists of a final group exhibition presented and hosted by one of Agora’s partner spaces, together with the launch of a publication of the entire project developed by Broken Dimanche Press throughout the residency process.
The program is structured in 5 phases facilitated by professionals from different fields based in Berlin and leaded by a moderator. The different phases of the project are: Contextualizing / Nourishment / Conceptualizing / Materializing / Outcome.
AFFECT methodology and format are conceptualized by Agora Collective e.V (Caique Tizzi, Marcela Donato, Tainá Moreno).
AFFECT Module II is moderated by Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga, facilitated by Diego Agulló, Yves Mettler, Sarah Lewis, John Holten, Judith Lavagna, and coordinated by Paz Ponce.
