About La Criatura-20: NuevAnormalidad

La Criatura is organized by the Asociación Creating Independent and Artistic Networks (CRIA). It is a performative biennial that is informed by the current social context, and includes performances, artistic interventions, talks, debates, and workshops, etc. More than 100 artists and activists participated in the first edition, with an audience of over 1,000. 

This second edition, La Criatura-20, is informed by the COVID crisis, questioning and imagining our new abnormality. This year it will take the form of a multiplatform online program from July – October 2020.

La Criatura-20: NuevAnormalidad aims to debate diagnoses, conflicts, and solutions in a performative summit with an interdisciplinary, international lineup. Following health protocols, the program is divided in multiple phases and focuses on several major themes and urgent agendas: economy and pandemic; sexuality, feminisms and LGBTQ+ issues; art and education; the environment, indigenous communities, and agro ecology; and finally, migration and crises of democracy and representation. 

There is also an open call for five grants called TesteosPerformativos. Collective and interdisciplinary artistic projects are eligible, and winners will realize an intervention in La Criatura 2020.

La Criatura is not another Zoom seminar; it’s a platform, a virtual stage for collective education and the creation of solidarity networks in times of crisis.

It’s an opportunity to learn, share, and debate the origins, causes, and consequences of the NewAnormality.
