THE PARADIGM CONFINES TOUR
del Fin del Mundo
EXHIBITION OF MAGAZINE IN SITU IN THE FIRST EDITION OF BIENAL
DEL FIN DEL MUNDO, CONSISTS ON A CONVERSATIONAL LINK ON TRAVEL
THROUGH EXTRA-TERRITORIAL WATERS.
MIS 6th.e will take place on a three hour navigation tour through
Channel. This navigation is a form of reading and a
closer look at certain signs: a guided tour through a cultural-physical
scenery. A horizontal space inter and trans, from where to examine
traces-intersections between different worlds (geographic, historical,
cultural, institutional, critical judgment, art practice). To
access a map-circuit of juxtaposed and inter-connective levels
of reading, that are no longer separated by the naturalized notions
that rule our knowledge and behaviors.
A device that offers a live and sensitive experience, intimate
and self-reflexive for a limited group of guests and at the same
time on the internet for a trans-located audience who has access
to the thematic discussions. A long-range symposium. A simultaneous
work on two time modes: on the real time of a live forum (in hours)
and the differed continuous time on the internet
An introduction of an ordinary extra-artistic common life activity
of the city, (the tour), in order to expand the perception and
the interaction towards other spots of the scenery. Thus, letting
the art territory get near something that is part of the every-day
life routine of the place and vice versa
-To generate on travel, a time of community, a situation that
allow a design, reading- writing plains, articulations that it
offer a dimension of the artistic practice as research field.

Biennial´s Practices and Uses–

do we relate with these narratives in the perspective of these
new cultural long-range events? Is the biennial event (the first
was done in 1895) accordingly placed in the present times?
2- A Biennial: what for and why? What kind of deconstructive and
post-colonial readings can be made?
3- which is the role and purpose of these cultural and artistic
productions in these type of events?
4- What kind of contribution can I put forward?
5 - The navigation through the geographic-semantic sides of the
biennial is to navigate through the edges of its staging, touching
its borders and structures (political-territorial-economical-touristy-patrimonial).
However it cannot be denied that this same distance allows to
introduce art among other discourses and to examine contradictions.
And to ask ourselves: what would allow a critical dialogue between
the practices both artistic and theoretical that approach critical
6-Is the way of approaching the institutional criticism from the
perspective of artistic and/or theoretical practice sufficient?
7- And what kind of effectiveness does it provide?
8-Which criteria, which paradigm analysis should be the support
when these critical practices turn into “study object”?
9-which are the concepts of emancipation and autonomy processes
of art, today?
10-is art the most advanced research field that exists nowadays?
On the edges of the representational paradigm
MIS proposes both a performative and an internet aspect, it tends
to provoke an escape of the self that allows for differing exhibition
strategies each time. MIS in the
bienal Del Fin del Mundo presents itself as an adventure
through the edges of the representational western paradigm. It
can be indistinctly called: symposium, theatre play, opera, participative
performance, guided tour, live magazine. A 3 hour sail trip biennial
with permanent presence on the web...?
The location - The
Coast Ushuaia view and Beagle Channel
Channel, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans merger / border
zone between Argentina and Chile and very close to “Europe”
Islands - United Kingdom)
city of Ushuaia
is known as the end of the world city. It is the southernmost
city in the planet, located across the Chilean territory, separated
by the Beagle
Islands (Las islas Malvinas is the Argentine name)
is Europe, as it is a British colony.
The name of the channel (Beagle
Channel) refers to the Brigantine HMS Beagle in
which the English sailor Robert Fitz Roy arrived in 1831, along
with the scientist Charles
Darwin and a native american Yámana who
was returned to his land by the British Crown in order to “christianize”
This peculiar geographic-politic-cultural dislocation of the territory
chosen for an international biennial is of particular interest
from the perspective of Magazine in situ.
