Until the end of its programme, COINCIDENCIA launches seven clips of diverse conversations: performers meet visual artists, sound art meets queerness, São Paulo meets Lausanne – online, edited, self–made & pixeled. 7 x 10 minutes samples of a much bigger exchange.
Conversas Diversas is a series of online conversations that establishes connections between artists, collectives and platforms which collaborated with COINCIDENCIA – Swiss and South American Cultural Exchanges in its three years of programme in both territories (2017 – 2020).
International collaborations raise a series of concerns, contextual differences and abysses. The aim of this video project is to disseminate ideas and develop discussions on diverse topics that have been of great importance for the programme. Conversas Diversas is a project that opens dialogues for artists to share their practices and experiences with a great sense of community and listening as essential aspects of exchange. It’s an experiment that keeps the door open for sharing questions, and building connections.
