[Talks] Meet our residents and discover their projects

Come and meet our residents during four public talks where they will each present their work-in-progress at Camargo.

From the conception of an intangible museum of dance to thinking about the evolving and unstable Palestinian relationship to the sky in visual culture, these talks will cover a number of topics as diverse as the residents who discuss them.

Kick-off of the European Pavilion in OGR Torino

We are proud to be a partner of the European Pavilion initiative of the European Cultural Foundation which kicked off on November 12, 2021 in OGR Torino. The European Pavilion is a program that fosters trans-local and trans-national collaborations and triggers curiosity, interest, and imagination across borders, sectors, and generations.

Within the framework of the European Pavilion initiative, Camargo has invited historian Leyla Dakhli to lead a collective process entitled ‘Translating Resistance, Smuggling Utopia’. Consisting of researchers, translators, artists, and activists, the collective shares, reads, compares, and discusses texts, archives, and ideas to retrace some trajectories of resistance and utopian thinking in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean.
