LATIDOAMÉRICA EXTENDIDA: EUROPA
screening + discussion
As part of the first edition of the Encuentro CONTINUO L A T I D O AMERICANO DE PERFORMANCE 2020, the committee for Latidoamérica Extendida: Europa has invited Latinx artists living in Europe to suggest videos and photoperformances that relate to their various experiences as migrants. The showcase will feature work by Latinx artists in Europe selected by invitation and open calls.
For this first edition of the Encuentro CONTINUO L A T I D O AMERICANO DE PERFORMANCE 2020, committees for 19 countries / regions and more than 100 artists have come together to present their work and discuss subjects of glocal relevance. Between November 13 and December 4, 2020 both the films and the debates will be broadcast internationally.
During November and December, 2020, Latidoamérica Extendida: Europa’s curatorial programme will also be presented in various cultural centres around Europe: 12-14 Contemporary (Vienna), Third Space (Helsinki), Convent de Sant Agustí (Barcelona), and at this Flux Club session at Antic Teatre (Barcelona).
Crossing the ocean to migrate.
The history of the world is the history of migration. The history of the names given to these groups of humans in motion: settlers; migrants; refugees; colonisers; expats; diaspora.
We all crossed the ocean to live among the ‘conquistadors’. For this programme we’ve decided to talk about how and why we got here, and, in particular, about how we managed to stay, and how and why we wanted and were able to leave.
The fluidity of borders and countries has dampened our identity. We inhabit hybrid and fluid enunciation spaces. Identity and nationality are equal and opposite at the same time.
Everything ‘Latinx’ is lived in ‘Europe’ among extended networks, found family, and other embodiments.
Joining us will be Marina Barsy Janer, one of the three curators of the event, and Isil Sol Vil, representing collaborating entity Materic.org.

FLUX CLUB celebrates its 11th season at the Antic Teatre and the 20th anniversary of its creation in 2000.
This is a fortnightly video programme that reflects the vitality of video creation in Barcelona. It hosts all kinds of sessions with screenings, video performances, and debates offering direct contact between audiences and video creators. The sessions focus on a range of subjects, from monographics of well-known directors to specific themes such as video dance and video poetry, or collective sessions dedicated to emerging authors.
The programme is open to everything currently going on in the field of video in Barcelona, complementing the FLUX Video Auteur Festival with its content and extending its sphere of influence beyond the dates of the festival, which takes place in December.
HABITUAL VIDEO TEAM is a non-profit association that has as its main objective the promotion of activities related to the visual arts, specifically, video art: www.habitualvideoteam.org.
A fundamental area of their work is the organisation of festivals, cycles and video shows, such as the FLUX Video Auteur Festival: www.fluxfestival.org, and the INFLUX Audiovisual Performing Arts Festival: www.influxfestival.org.
Another area of Habitual Video Team’s activity is video documentation of cultural events mainly related to experimental music and poetry performances. In 2012 they launched the SUMMA project in order to convert this audiovisual heritage (more than 1000 recordings) into a non-profit online video archive: www.summa-hvt.org.
