Institute of Global Longing
The Institute of Global Longing is a ‘conceptual artistic object’: a platform and a collective space where artists can embody acts of creative vulnerability and fragility without fear of undermining their own humanity. It will focus on the development of multicultural and interdisciplinary artistic works weaving together collaborations between collectives of artists and different artistic forms.
The aim will be to facilitate access to creative possibilities where these art forms can occupy the space between social and political concerns, and the creation of new knowledge produced by networks of people working together.
Luis Lara Malvacías body of work has focused on ideas of transformation, multiplicity, authorship and the role of the audience in dance performance. His multidisciplinary projects question preconceived ideas of choreography and modes of production and presentation.
