Gathering into the Maelstrom

17-20 April 2024

Gathering into the Maelstrom in Venice at Sale Docks is a four-day programme curated by Institute of Radical Imagination (IRI) and Sale Docks

'Gathering into the Maelstrom' – at Sale Docks Dorsoduro 265 in Venice – is an invitation to learn to inhabit the vortex of our contemporary moment, rooting artistic production in ecological struggles, and transforming the field of contemporary art into a political territory. To generate a Museum of the Commons we must both question the toxicity that permeates institutions and, at the same time, build non-capitalistic, non-colonial, non-patriarchal, and non-anthropocentric alliances., as a partner organisation in the Museum of the Commons project, participate to two of the events at the gathering: the Climate Assembly (through the presence of Adelina Luft, Eduard Constantin, Delia Bulgaru, Livia Pancu, Ovidiu Tichindeleanu and Raluca Voinea), and the Art for Radical Ecologies Manifesto book launch and panel (through the participation of Ovidiu Tichindeleanu and Raluca Voinea), both on Friday, 19 April 2024.
