OuUnPo[RTO] “RECREATIVE TEMPORARY ORBIT”
April 3-6, 2012
«As ideias são prodigiosas – elas e a maneira como se associam. Num momento, descobrimos que atravessamos o mundo, e que transpomos o infinito entre dois pensamento.» Fernando Pessoa
This OuUnPo session gravitated around concepts such as path, ceremony, decadence, heteronomy. The title OuUnPo[RTO] stands for “Recreative Temporary Orbit,” a loose concept encouraging any kind of approach to decipher the city, its artistic scene and its social political concerns in times of financial crisis. The program was shaped as an imaginary book and each chapter was freely refering to a quote of Fernando Pessoa. The content of each chapter was kept secret until the first day’s “Prologue” while the actual program remained unknown until its gradual unfolding. Participants were asked to bring a bathing costume and a completely black outfit.
