<nettime> Live Radio from Emergency - Emergent/Agency {AT} Lui Velazquez


This weekend, october 11th and 12th, Lui Velazquez will be hosting media 
production workshops for youth and students as part of the Emergency - 
Emergent Agency project which explores people’s relationship to mass 
media and the transmission of messages between groups who don’t usually 
have access to the media. The workshop is being organized in 
collaboration with Michael Trigilio of Neighborhood Public Radio and 
Ricardo Dominguez of the Electronic Disturbance Theater.

El Proyecto Cívico: Diálogos e interrogantes (PCDI), comparte los 
intereses de la exhibición que le da nombre. Esbozado para repensar la 
programación pública del museo involucra a tanto a la audiencia 
especializada como a la general dentro de nuevas y más significativas 
formas de intercambio y comunicación.

La exhibición, Proyecto cívico, es una investigación sobre el estado de 
excepciones políticas, cívicas y sociales que gobiernan escandalosamente 
la vida diaria de Tijuana, pero cuyos síntomas son observables 
constantemente en todas las naciones contemporáneas. Estas excepciones 
-como lo sostiene el teórico Giorgio Agambem- han puesto en crisis a la 
noción misma de ciudadanía. Proyecto cívico es una exhibición de 
artistas internacionales y regionales organizada para la inauguración 
del CUBO, el nuevo espacio de exhibición del Centro Cultural Tijuana.

The Proyecto Cívico: Diálogos e Interrogantes (PCDI) project is a 
collective effort to bring artists, various collaborators, and the 
museum together in actively sharing and investigating the nature of 
their cultural practices and its relationship to the city.

PCDI also shares the interests of the exhibition after which it is 
named. Proyecto cívico, is an exhibition of international and regional 
artists organized for the inauguration of El Cubo, the Centro Cultural 
de Tijuana's (CECUT) new exhibition venue. The exhibition is an 
investigation into the state of political, civic, and social exceptions 
that govern daily life in Tijuana, but whose symptoms are increasingly 
observable in all contemporary nations. These exceptions have, as 
theorist Giorgio Agamben argues, brought the very concept of citizenship 
into question.
