The third edition of the festival of art and thought Gelatina returns in an online version to focus on and question the way we understand and relate chronic illness, disability and personal and collective trauma to political, social and economic conditions; as well as underlining the importance of shared experience and taking into account somatics in healing and ritual processes.
Gelatina 2020 will take place throughout the month of May with an online program that includes talks, music mixes, sound performances, readings, meditations, workshops and screenings, and will culminate in an online publication that gathers and expands this previous programme with texts, interviews and visual material from artists, musicians, poets and thinkers such as Ca Conrad, Swan Meat, Sophie Hoyle, Suutoo, Leah Clements, Clay AD, Rebecca Bellantoni, Imani Robinson, Sharona Franklin, JOVENDELAPERLA, Ikoniadou among others.
