CREATIVE CARIBBEAN NETWORK

Connecting Cultural Worlds

Dear Creative Network Members,

PUMA is refocusing on its sports heritage and concentrating all its resources on being the fastest sports brand in the world. As such, we have taken the difficult decision to cease supporting the Creative Networks. Unfortunately, we were not successful in finding a new partner for the Creative Networks to provide ongoing support.

On 15 May, 2014 the PUMA Creative Networks will no longer be accessible and all data hosted on the platforms will be deleted permanently. Please act immediately to mitigate any potential impact.

We thank you for having been an integral part of the Networks and for your great contributions. We hope that alternative networking options can effectively fill the void and support you in continuing the interactions and connections that were happening on the PUMA Creative Network platforms.

With best wishes for the future,

PUMA

Sessions: Itinerant Seminar 2014

3 week intensive seminar at Beta-Local

This Itinerant Seminar is a three week walking seminar for artists who are interested in aesthetics in relation land, geography and built environment; and post-industrial and post-military devastation.

Este seminario itinerante es un seminario móvil y un viaje a pie para artistas quienes mantienen un interés en la relación entre la estética y la noción de lugar, la geografía y lo construído; y los lugares post-industriales y post-militares.

This Itinerant Seminar is a three week walking seminar for artists who are interested in aesthetics in relation land, geography and built environment; and post-industrial and post-military devastation. We expect participants' interests to affect the scope of the seminar. The seminar is organized by artists Beatriz Santiago Muñoz and Ramiro Chaves. We are particularly interested in the ways in which abstract political and social concepts become materially and sensorially manifest, and in experimenting with visual strategies to represent these ideas, events or histories. Most of the time we will be traveling on foot and sleeping outdoors: direct observation and interaction at a human scale is an essential method for understanding these processes. We will meet in San Juan, spend a couple of days preparing in Beta-Local and set out walking from Guayanilla through the southwestern coast of Puerto Rico and end 2 weeks later in Cabo Rojo, where we will stay for 3-4 days. We will be going walking through bat caves and post-industrial developments, open road, dry forest and beach. Though working collectively is not necessary, the structure and method of the seminar demands communal work and solidarity, as we will be undertaking a collective adventure: cooking together, sleeping outdoors and inevitably running into problems. A willingness to embrace the unexpected and improvise on your feet is essential.

The seminar is anchored in the specific geography, local knowledge, emerging art practices, and social and political conditions of Puerto Rico. The island's exuberant tropical ecology coexists with environmental devastation, economic crisis, institutional mimesis and decay, militarized and post-military spaces, as well as a growing movement to understand and transform these conditions.
