    With DJ Troya Modet

    The workshops are open to women of all ages, genders and persuasions, and participation is free.

    Since 2013, the DJ Workshops for Women are hosted every month in a side room of the artist-run brewery Butcher’s Tears in Amsterdam by the curator, cultural producer and radio host Amal Alhaag (Africa is Hot, Red Light Radio, Amsterdam) and the artist Maria Guggenbichler (DJ Boris Becker).

    The DJ Workshops for Women provide a safe space for women to learn, play, experiment and exchange about music, passion, technology, software and skills – which is a conversation we seem to hardly have, not amongst ourselves and neither with our male colleagues. During each workshop a female DJ (or DJ collective) shares her knowledge, love, experience and trajectory with and through music, DJ-ing and the music scene.

    The workshops aim to offer alternatives to the self-fashioning, intentionally inaccessible and intimidating myth of the ‘DJ-god‘, and make DJ-ing approachable for women. In the face of fundamental under-representation and, more often than not, merely stereotypical visibility of women in music and culture, our roles are confined to passivity and silence, as audience, discreet recipients, groupies, muses, and so forth. The workshops want to provide and encourage alternative opportunity for self-determined, joyful, visible and thriving action of women.

    “We cannot be satisfied with the recognition and acknowledgement generated by the very system that denies a) that anything was ever broken and b) that we deserved to be the broken part; so we refuse to ask for recognition and instead we want to take apart, dismantle, tear down the structure that, right now, limits our ability to find each other, to see beyond it and to access the places that we know lie outside its walls.”

    Con DJ Troya Modet

    El taller está abierto a mujeres de todas las edades, géneros y convicciones, y la participación es gratuita.

    Desde 2013, los talleres de DJ para mujeres son acogidos todos los meses en una habitación lateral de la fábrica de cerveza gestionada por artistas Butcher’s Tears en Amsterdam, organizados por el comisario, productor cultural y locutor de radio Amal Alhaag (Africa is Hot, Red Light Radio, Amsterdam) y la artista Maria Guggenbichler (DJ Boris Becker).

    Los talleres de DJ para mujeres proporcionan un espacio seguro para que las mujeres aprendan, jueguen, experimenten e intercambien sobre música, pasión, tecnología, software y habilidades – una conversación que parece que apenas podemos disfrutar, ni entre nosotras ni con nuestros colegas masculinos. Durante cada taller una DJ femenina (o colectivo) comparte su conocimiento, amor, experiencia y trayectoria con y a través de la música.

    Los talleres tienen como objetivo ofrecer alternativas a la auto-producción, el intencionalmente inaccesible e intimidatorio mito del ‘DJ-dios “, y hacer el DJ-ing accesible para las mujeres. Ante la fundamental subrepresentación y la a menudo visibilidad meramente estereotipada de la mujer en la música y la cultura, nuestros papeles están confinados a la pasividad y el silencio como público, como receptoras discretas, groupies, musas, y así sucesivamente. Los talleres quieren ofrecer y fomentar la oportunidad alternativa, la acción autodeterminada alegre, visible y próspera de las mujeres.

    “No podemos estar satisfechas con el reconocimiento generado por el mismo sistema que niega a) que nunca se quebró nada y b) que merecíamos ser la parte rota; así que nos negamos a pedir el reconocimiento y en su lugar queremos desmontar, desmantelar, demoler la estructura que, ahora mismo, limita nuestra capacidad de encontrarnos, para ver más allá y acceder a los lugares que sabemos que se encuentran fuera de los muros “.

    BAR project’s 2015 residency program is inviting artists and curators whose work research and essay different ways of living together in the world and alternative forms of community. In this context, artists Christian Nyampeta (UK), and Maria Guggenbichler (D), and curator Elena Yaichnikova (RS), in residence until the end of May, will be presenting their work and introducing the projects they are developing in Barcelona.

    Christian Nyampeta
    Christian Nyampeta is an artist who investigates into how individuals and communities negotiate forms of socially organised violence. Nyampeta makes use of what he, following his friends, refers to in terms of practical philosophy. This is a “poeisis of worlding”, making and doing that generates both singularised and collective considerations, in the hope that such understanding may relieve some of the anguish to which the legion of structural oppression subjects us.

    Owing to the generosity of many and their collaborative efforts spanning over a number of years, Nyampeta has staged social encounters through which various artists, philosophers, practitioners, institutions and individuals live and work together, and through which workshops, seminars, interiors, instruments, exhibitions, fellowships and publications have been materialised. These activities take place regionally and further afield, in public institutions as well as in intimate circles of regional homes, in transnational research groups and other bodies that do not easily lend themselves to wording.

    Nyampeta’s theoretical anchor is the study of the ways of work and life of the early ascetics and monks and their organisational principles. Nyampeta is a PhD candidate at the Visual Cultures Department of Goldsmiths, University of London. Here, he researches idiorrhythmy, a formational concept for regional utopian imaginaries drawn from early monasticism, proposed through the seminar lectures of Roland Barthes at the Collège de France titled How To Live Together.

    Ongoing activities include contributions to research programmes of How We Behave, The Grand Domestic Revolution, Practice International and Tagore’s Universal Allegories. Recent exhibitions include How to Live Together: Prototypes, The Showroom, London; New Habits, the research group exhibition organised by Casco – Office for Art Design and Theory, Utrecht; How To Live Together at Casco and at Stroom Den Haag between 2013 and 2014.

    Maria Guggenbichler
    Maria Guggenbichler is a conceptual artist and curator who uses social exchanges such as conversations, collaborations and jokes to find new functions for art in society. Her work is realised in ongoing and long-term dialogues and friendships. Outside institutional walls, her projects create accessible, joyful and reciprocal spaces, in self-organized, informal and often domestic structures. Since 2005, Maria has collaborated with the artist Rosalie Schweiker.

    Together they organised a holiday for female artists (Funny Women Art, 2013); published a reader about the “fact that art institutions gladly incorporate feminism as long as it is authored by men” (Clever Men’s Art, 2014), and had a solo show under the name of a male artist (Outpost, Norwich, 2014).
    Together with the curator Amal Alhaag, Maria founded the Side Room in Amsterdam. The Side Room is a platform for diverse actors’ intersectional feminist, queer and anti-colonial gathering, listening, learning, experimentation, dancing, DJ-ing, (re-)mixing, musings, and doings. Maria is co-editor of queer-lesbian arts magazine Girls Like Us since 2014.

    BAR project invita para su programa de residencias de 2015 a artistas y curadores cuyos trabajos investigan y ensayan diferentes maneras de vivir juntos en el mundo y formas alternativas de comunidad. En este contexto, los artistas Christian Nyampeta (UK), y Maria Guggenbichler (D), y la curadora Elena Yaichnikova (RS), en residencia hasta el final de mayo, presentarán su práctica y introducirán los proyectos que están desarrollando en Barcelona.

    Christian Nyampeta
    Christian Nyampeta es un artista que investiga la forma en que individuos y comunidades negocian formas de violencia social organizada. Nyampeta hace uso de lo que, siguiendo a sus amigos, se refiere en términos de filosofía práctica. Se trata de una “poeisis of worlding”, haciendo y haciendo que genera tanto consideraciones singularizadas como colectivas, con la esperanza de que tal entendimiento pueda aliviar la carga que la legión de opresión estructural ejerce sobre nosotros.

    Gracias a la generosidad de muchos y sus esfuerzos de colaboración desde hace varios años, Nyampeta ha puesto en marcha encuentros sociales a través de los cuales varios artistas, filósofos, profesionales, instituciones e individuales viven y trabajan juntos, que se materializan a través de talleres, seminarios, interiores, exposiciones, becas y publicaciones. Estas actividades se llevan a cabo a nivel regional y más allá, en las instituciones públicas así como en los círculos íntimos de hogares regionales, en grupos de investigación transnacionales y otros organismos que no se prestan fácilmente a descripción.

    El anclaje teórico de Nyampeta es el estudio de las formas de trabajo y de vida de los primeros ascetas y monjes y sus principios de organización. Nyampeta es estudiante de doctorado en el Departamento de Culturas Visuales Goldsmiths, Universidad de Londres. Aquí investiga idiorrhythmy, un concepto formativo de los imaginarios utópicos regionales procedentes del monaquismo temprano, propuestos a través de las conferencias del seminario de Roland Barthes en el Collège de France titulado How To Live Together.

    Algunas actividades en marcha  son sus contribuciones al programa de investigación How We Behave, The Grand Domestic Revolution, Practice International and Tagore’s Universal Allegories. Exposiciones recientes son How to Live Together: Prototypes, The Showroom, London; New Habits, la exposición del grupo de investigación organizada por Casco – Office for Art Design and Theory, Utrecht; How To Live Together en Casco y Stroom Den Haag entre 2013 y 2014.
