ABOUT CORRELACION CONTEMPORANEA

ABOUT COM UNIDAD RESIDENCE
COM UNIDAD is a virtual artistic residence based in Peru that proposes the creation of a collaborative network made up of cultural actors related to history, art and community practices, from traditional art to contemporary art, through the management of projects, artistic education and archaeological practices in order to generate the continuity of community work from a context of isolation and social distancing that the new normal proposes us.

The work program aims to rethink the development of community art practices through virtual strategies that build a network of community initiatives of creation, management or education based on the collective research of the main cultural, social and geographical axes of Peru.

For this purpose, COM UNIDAD, proposes a research work divided into three cycles, three regions and three months, in which the group made up of residents, collaborators and coordinators will carry out a constant exercise of dialogue, exchange and analysis of the forms of life and social organization that develop in the coast, andean and jungle of Peru.

RESEARCH AREAS:
> Contemporary art as an affective and community tool in rural areas.
> Cultural scene and autonomous management.
> Pre-Hispanic Peruvian culture (Cosmovision, language, rituals, and others).
> Post-pandemic community art.
