Lucrezia Cippitelli – Alamar project (video conference from USA)

A point of view of hacktivism as collective practice, critical and not oriented to the production of artistic “goods”, gave me the chance to present into the series of talks – focused on the theme of Hacker as virus that pierce and crack a system – the work of a group of artists and activists from Havana with whom I worked for two months last summer. Our project was about collective artistic practices in public spaces in Cuba from the 90’s up to now.

Omni was born, developed and works in Alamar, outlying suburb lacking in infrastructure of East Havana . This zone is inhabited by more than 300 thousand people and it’s badly served by media, deprived of public spaces of socialisation and services. Well, far more different than the picturesque pictures of Havana sold to rich and corpulent North American or European tourists. Space of the counterculture starting from the 70’s (now it is the cradle of a Rap Festival who’s born in 1995), Alamar it’s a district inhabited by Chilean refugee because of the dictatorship, Russian, inconvenient intellectual for the Cuban system. But it’s also part of the –short and not intense- history of post-revolutionary Cuban urbanism, rationalist north European and Soviet project that proposed huge living structures spread in an area near the sea and essentially agricultural (a sort of little Living Unit as which of Le Corbusier but in the middle of nothing).

Center for Tactical Magic (video conference from USA)

The Center for Tactical Magic engages in extensive research, development, and deployment of the pragmatic system known as Tactical Magic. A fusion force summoned from the ways of the artist, the magician, the ninja, and the private investigator, Tactical Magic is an amalgam of disparate arts invoked for the purpose of actively addressing Power on individual, communal, and transnational fronts. At the CTM we are committed to achieving the Great Work of Tactical Magic through community-based projects, daily interdiction, and the activation of latent energies toward positive social transformation.
