Museos en común
Common learning and knowledge

As part of the project Museos en común, a series of lectures, panels and workshops invite national and international voices to discuss the “common”, and their experiences in linking communities with cultural practices. The public program is based on four axes: What is common? Common Places, Common Actors and Common Learning and Knowledge.

In this last axis, guests Mina Lorena Navarro, Proyecto Yivi, Mónica Hoff and Jordi Ferreiro present pedagogical practices and knowledge production within contemporary art tin projects that promote the construction of community.

Proyecto Yivi
A project of artistic formation, creation, and diffusion, developed with girls, boys and youth of the Mixteca Alta Oaxaqueña, Proyecto Yivi is organized by Luisa Pardo and Pedro Pizarro with the support of countless collaborators. It was established in Santo Domingo Yanhuitlán in February 2016. It has given free workshops in scenic, audiovisual, and plastic creation, in addition to generating materials for exhibitions and live presentations. The scenic and audiovisual project Yutata ́ti, developed by Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol from Taller Yivi, in collaboration with Le Studio Film und Bühne, was presented in Vienna between August and November 2021. In the framework of the encounter Espacios Revelados, Lima, between November 2021 and March 2022, the Proyect Serpiente de Tierra was designed and built to generate a space for play, encounter and learning in a public square in the Rimac district, Peru.

Jordi Ferreiro
Artist and educator, Ferreiro’s work explores the concept of institutional mediation and how art can work as a tool to intervene and change the bureaucratic spaces responsible for administering knowledge, constructing what we understand as culture and regulating our way of understanding the world. Based on his interest in experimental pedagogies and site-specific work, Ferreiro uses installations, performances and formats understood as educational (guided tours, audio guides) to generate “states of exception” within cultural institutions, with the aim of experimenting with new infrastructures and models of governance. He has worked for institutions such as Z33 (Hasselt), Zacheta Gallery (Warsaw), Museo del Oro (Bogota), Lugar a Dudas (Cali), Academia Valand (Gothenburg), Museo Cerrillos (Santiago de Chile), Gaîté Lyrique (Paris) and TEOR / ética (San José). He has also worked in numerous institutions in his native Spain, such as MACBA, Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, Matadero, La Casa Encendida, Museo Thyssen Bornemisza and Centre d'Art Fabra i Coats, among others.

Mónica Hoff
Artist, curator and researcher, Hoff holds a PhD in Contemporary Artistic Processes from the Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina. Throughout her practice, she has researched the relationships between curatorial, artistic, and educational practices and how they contribute to, conflict or determine institutional policies and pedagogies. Her recent projects include:_ Laboratório de Curadoria, Arte e Educação_ (2014-2019), in collaboration with Fernanda Albuquerque; Embarcação (2016-2018), a space co-directed with Kamilla Nunes in Florianópolis, Brazil; Corazón Pulmones Hígado, co-curated with Andrea Pacheco at Matadero Madrid (2019-2020); and the program Ni apocalipsis ni paraíso: meditaciones en el umbral, co-curated with Eva Posas, for the second edition of Materia Abierta, in Mexico (2021). She is currently developing the project Pedagogia em público, with artist Fabio Tremonte.
