RSS - Sign the petition to support Racines, Morocco

03.02.2019

Dissolution of NGO Racines, an unacceptable violation of cultural rights in Morocco

 

The Roberto Cimetta Fund, is outraged to learn of the dissolution of the NGO Racines, announced by the civil court of the first instance of Casablanca on 26thDecember 2018. This sudden attack is unjust and unjustifiable, serving the Moroccan Government’s desire to clamp down on associations that would dare to be too free in their expression. 

 

The Governor of Casablanca-Anfa, a senior official of the Ministry of the Interior, filed a complaint against Racines for the hosting of a YouTube show 1 Dîner 2 Cons, a satirical political commentary. The show is one of the bastions of free speech, addressing the often-taboo topics of politics, religion and sex.  During the August 5 episode, viewed more than half a million times, some guests criticized the Moroccan King’s speeches and policies regarding police repression of protests. On December 26, 2018, the civil court of the first instance of Casablanca announced the dissolution of Racines on the grounds that the group had “expressed political views which were far removed from the purposes for which the association was created.” In parallel, the show I diner 2 cons continues to work and produce its forthcoming episode. Racines has appealed the court’s decision. The sentence is currently non-binding, and Racines is continuing its work advocating for freedom of expression and cultural diversity.

 

Established in 2010, Racines is a non-profit, non-political and non-denominational, cultural organisation based in Casablanca, working throughout Morocco to support the setting up of cultural action and policies which respond to citizens’ needs. Racines’ work is exemplary, based on territorial diagnosis, mapping, research, advocacy, and resulting in concrete outcomes in terms of cultural entrepreneurship, training, freedom of expression and the integration of culture as a key component of social and economic stability. Their recent publication “Culture is the solution” brings clear arguments to the fore.

 

Freedom of artistic expression is fundamental to a free and open society. Uninhibited creative expression catalyzes social and political engagement, stimulates the exchange of ideas and opinions, and encourages intercultural dialogue, a key element to the resolution of conflicts of any kind. Freedom of expression is essential to individuals and communities, challenging us to confront difficult realities together. 

Restricting this freedom and the free flow of ideas strikes at the heart of the core values of an open society.

 

Launched in 1999 as an international civil society initiative, the Roberto Cimetta Fund (RCF) expresses the determination of cultural and arts professionals in finding solutions to improve cooperation with their colleagues from the Arab world and the Middle East, strengthening exchange in a sustainable way via a multilateral mobility programme. 

 

RCF considers that the voices of artists and cultural operators like Racines and coming from every part of the world - writers, visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, performers - are more vital than ever today, at a time when we must listen to others in the search for global understanding, when we need, more than anything else, to imagine together the creative solutions for the crises of our time. 

 

Echoing the words of many other international cultural and human rights organisations, the Roberto Cimetta Fund - its Board members, experts, staff and beneficiaires - urge the Government of Morocco to take into consideration these serious concerns and release the charges against Racines.

 

Sign the petition to support Racines and say no to the dissolution.

RCF - Travel grants - RCF/Biennale Warszawa - Deadline: 31/12/2018

29.11.2018

The Roberto Cimetta Fund and Biennale Warszawa are collaborating to offer travel grants in the framework of the Biennale Warszawa in May and June 2019, thus facilitating and increasing mobility and creativity of artists between Central Eastern Europe and the Arab-Middle East region. 

 

Biennale Warszawa is a public institution focusing on a long-term work plan and operating on 2-year work cycles, which terminate with a festival lasting several weeks. Its aim is to integrate research, activism and artistic work all in one. The main idea behind the Biennale Warszawa concept is to aggregate and structure expertise on present-day culture and art, as well as politics. From this base, new artistic, political, social, economic and ecological ideas are created and deliberated, building alternative models of functioning in the post-crisis world. The curatorial concept for the Biennale Warszawa focuses on the institution’s activities around three dualities: art / culture, research / discourse and activism / politics. Integrating these dualities of expression leads to mutual strengthening of capacities and synergies, and avoids already worked out ideas, artworks or initiatives. This way of working allows the ideas, knowledge and concepts to flow both ways between science and art. It makes it possible to include art in intervention and activist actions in the public space and to conduct art-based research projects. This model supports the process of creating new, alternative and positive projects for human life, politics, communities, economy and culture. It is essential that, when providing many different viewpoints and experiences, one does not create divisions, then impossible to overcome, but designs a new world with a vision focused on that which is common and universal instead of that which divides and disconnects. 

 

This call is open to applications until 31st December 2018. 


Applications can be made in Arabic, English or French.

 

The applicant must directly address the context presented by Biennale Warszawa, as indicated below and focus on future possibilities for transnational commons, translocal politics beyond nation states, Central Eastern European and Arab-Middle East relations. 

 
SPECIFIC BIENNALE WARSZAWA CRITERIA
From the end of WWII till the transition period in 1989, Poland developed strong relations with North African and Middle-East countries. Polish Communist government represented the Eastern Block and led diplomatic and economic relations with Arab countries. These relations have been strong especially in 60s, 70s and 80s when trade, economical and technological exchange was happening. As a result of this cooperation, Polish specialists in industry, economy, science, infrastructure and medicine went to work in Arab region. From 70s, Polish foreign trade company POLSERVICE sent several thousands of Polish specialists to African and Middle-East countries. At the same time, many special scholarship programs at Polish Universities were created for foreign students from these countries. From the 60s, the Department of Undeveloped Countries at Warsaw School of Planning and Statistics (SGPiS) created by Michał Kalecki and Ignacy Sachs accepted many students from Africa and Middle-East who later took on many important positions in their own homelands. 
Rediscovering those historical relations that were suddenly cut in 1989, due to the change of the Polish foreign policy, could be a starting point for a new set of artistic and political projects that will create imaginary future-oriented scenarios of trans-regional and trans-local bonds between Central-Eastern Europe and Arab-Middle East region.
We would like to invite curators, artists, researchers and cultural operators to take up this challenge and design different alternatives for today’s social, political and economic order; new institutions, organizations, imaginary scenarios, provocative and experimental worlds related to the given context. Our programme expects that artistic tools (performance, visual arts, music, etc.) work together with political, social, economical, ecological and activist actions. We aim to reclaim the past context and imagine new transnational and translocal relations.

RSS - Call For Applications: Master of Arts in Transdisciplinary Studies

19.09.2018

Are you specialised in a particular discipline-and at times concerned about how open and porous your specialism is in relation to other disciplines? Do you have questions about your discipline-and are unable to find satisfactory answers in discussing them with your peers? Do you have experience as a practising artist-and yet feel uncertain when experimenting with unfamiliar formats? Are you convinced about the fruitfulness of a critical debate between the arts and the sciences-but haven't yet found a suitable framework for such a debate? If you have such or similar questions, you will feel at home at our MA Transdisciplinary Studies.
The new arises both on the edges of or at the interfaces between traditional disciplines be it in the arts, the sciences, or everyday life. Our postgraduate program me explores precisely these interfaces and intersections, and serves as a hinge and hub between the arts, the sciences, and society. Here, at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), we see transdisciplinarity as a form of cooperation capable of opening up innovative perspectives, questions, and solutions. 

 

Coursework is dedicated to building the transversal skills needed to deepen, extend, and position one's specialist skills with a view to developing and competently pursuing new questions, methods, and core working areas. We aim to contribute to the professionalisation of transdisciplinary work and to equipping students with the skills and qualifications needed for unforeseeable professional tasks. Our programme builds on the manifold teaching and research competencies at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), on the specialist skills of our students, and on possible connections with various professional fields.
