FREEPORT is an independent study program for a world of humans and machines. It promotes radical research and creative production combining art methodologies with the language of design, activism, Internet communities, critical engineering, and journalism. The ultimate goal of FREEPORT is to help in the development of unconventional ways to explore a networked planet, seizing its aesthetic opportunities and exposing its political ambiguities.
 
FREEPORT 0 - Signals and storms is the first pilot activity in the program, to take place from November 18 to 22, 2019 in a larger framework designed jointly with the Tentacular festival. It consists of a week of activities led by international artists and researchers Asia Bazdyrieva and Solveig Suess (Geocinema).
 
A group of 25 participants from Madrid and the rest of Europe will face the challenge of observing, exploring and narrating the planet - and Madrid in particular - as a hybrid and accidental mega-structure interconnecting human beings, their habits, their infrastructures, and other agents, both natural and artificial.
 
Participants will be encouraged to think creatively of new ways of talking about what human senses fail to capture, including both non-human factors, as well as other elements of human origin (such as infrastructure, data layers, etc.), which are often designed to operate in the background and blur their bias, control systems, and power hierarchies.
 
Geocinema's work will be the starting point and at the same time a method. A first-hand knowledge of the most specific aspects of their projects will allow participants to find inspiration for possible creative strategies to collect data, create images and build stories. We will discuss narrative and aesthetic choices; and finally we will try to build visual, audiovisual, narrative, and even performative or literary prototypes according to the participants’ skills.
 
Studying and possibly piercing the irregular solderings of this megamachine is the challenge of this first Freeport program.
