Case studie: “Museu do Douro: I am landscape: research and creation of experiential relationships between people, landscapes – and Museu do Douro”

With Samuel Guimarães, speaker.

Can we, in a talk, share possibilities, failures and hypotheses rather than findings, for ‘dissonant’ practices?

i am landscape: the foundation for this action is the research and creation of experiential relationships between people and landscapes. The research addresses concepts to discuss such as territory and landscape, body and place, establishing a dialogue and a tension between different modes of expression, discourses and politics. How can our research practices decentralise binary ways of dealing within the landscape, challenging the singular plural as condition of life, as defined by Hannah Arendt?

This work aims to complexify the discussion about art education practices on close relation to landscape and arts (performing arts, in particular) in a territory where power and bondage are such an obvious part of the landscape.

We want to aim and instruct our enquiry towards those small big things that could act as magnifying glass: In the Douro Valley, it is not uncommon to talk about the secrets of wine, grape varieties and soil, but amidst those local secrets we want to talk too of lovers; of voices and particular accents; of apples; of video recordings; of daisies (she/he loves me, she/he loves me not); of cherries; of dancing; of oranges; of loves; of names; of theatre; of red poppies; of lands; of the names of lands; of plants growing on riverbanks; of songs; of the lyrics of songs; of the secrets contained in the lyrics of songs; of cinema; of breeding; of poplars; of bodies; of body parts; of chestnut trees; of ash trees; of poetry; of rivers; of tributary rivers; of philosophy; of olive trees; of partners; of power; of hierarchy in the landscape and in human relationships; of secrets as a currency of power.
