unsettling deprogramming pt.2

 with Cibelle Bastos

Time: from 11:30 - 16:30
Small Project Space Room

We are pleased to welcome again Brazilian-born, Berlin-based multimedia artist Cibelle Cavalli Bastos who leads a two-day workshop "Ævtar/Deprogram: scanning for malware / “a”, not “I” #debinarize" which takes a metaphorical approach to looking at ideas of human perception and understandings of the Self. Applying this idea specifically to computational systems–of accessing inner technologies and kick-starting a deprogramming process–the event will look at inner movements and their external manifestations in people, through parallels with malware and trigger mechanisms, as well as language as an OS, and “intrapolitical” concepts. “a”, not ...

As workshop capacity is limited, please email confirmation of your attendance by 6 November to unsettling@rietveldacademie.nl.

Mx. Cibelle Cavalli Bastos. Non-binary, They/Them pronouns. Artist, independent researcher and activist. Lives and works between Berlin, São Paulo and London. Graduated in 2015 from Royal College of Art, London. Released four music albums worldwide and has performed and presented work in Museo Reina Sofia (Madrid-SP), Martin Gropius Bau (Berlin-DE), ICA (London-UK), MASP (São Paulo-BR), Carnegie Hall (NY-USA), LCCA (Riga-LV), CAC Wifredo Lam (Havana-Cuba), 6th Moscow Biennale (Moscow-RU), and collaborations in the 28th /31st São Paulo Biennial (SP-Brazil), among others. Cibelle Cavalli Bastos has a conceptual, expanded field and interdisciplinary practice that includes writing, performance, sound, video, painting, sculpture, and installation. Currently operating daily through Instagram stories and IGTV under @aevtarperform with the project Aevtar/ Deprogram. Concerned with the challenges in perception posed by technological advance-ments, the constant repetition of violent behavioural patterns, and its consequences in identity formation and politics. Cavalli Bastos works with pattern recognition, linguistics, psychology and cognition in search for the core structures that uphold violence, oppressive systems, and disable empathy. Through art/life practice as research, method and output, strategies are put in place to locate and tackle these issues. Striving for subjective consistency, rather than formal consistency, all works occur on the intersection of purpose, occasion, and site specificity, through the development speculative fictions and scientific /psychologic experimentations expressed in immersive installations, performances of alter-identities, digital activism, lectures, workshops, musical and text based work, as well as individual formally resolute pieces.
