  1. Hi,Tony
  2. Tell me about Casa Tres Patios.
  3. How was it born?
  4. The idea that you had, to found it.
  5. - Casa Tres Patios started in 2006 and
    it was originally conceived as a space
  6. just to do experiments where local artists
    and art students could do experiments in
  7. different spaces in Casa.
    Simply to explore areas that they haven't
  8. had the chance to explore before.
  9. In 2006 we did six periods
    of experimentation
  10. six exhibitions and then the grant ended.
    It was here on a great Fulbright grant,
  11. And I moved back to the United States.
  12. The idea was really just to open the space
    up for local artists
  13. But in 2007 I was approached
    by Museo D Antioquia
  14. and they said if I wanted to come back
  15. then I could start doing a residency program
  16. to invite international artists to come
    to the ---- as well
  17. because they were planning a big event.
  18. With that impulse, we started our
    residency program
  19. and just started
    ...the whole ball started rolling!
  20. So we started doing resedencies,
    lectures, classes, exhibitions,
  21. different activities around art.
  22. And as a result of those activities
    and our continuing desire
  23. to try make an impact in the
    local art community
  24. we observed that when we did lectures
    and when we did workshops,
  25. it was more effective and we had a bigger
    impact directly into the local community
  26. so we started investigating more of the
    educational side of art and
    its potential impacts.
  27. And as a result of that we begun
    to work with local secretary of culture
  28. to develop a series of workshops
    for children and young people
  29. to use art in a questioning, which comes
    along with contemporary art as a platform
  30. for generating reflections, either
    personal reflections or social reflections
  31. in these children and young people.
  32. We still do exhibitions.
    We still have artists in residency.
  33. But today we are looking more at art as a
    platform for generating pedagogical practices
  34. and that's generally
    our direction in 2014.
  35. -Mhmm. Will me, as a former developer find
    interest in that you host a group of hackers?
  36. Can you tell me a bit about them?
  37. - Yeah, the group of hackers is called
    Un/Loquer.
  38. They're a group that's now been around for
    about 6 or 7 years, if I'm not mistaken,
  39. perhaps longer.
  40. And basically, we adopted them to a
    certain extent; we adopted each other.
  41. They were housed in the
    Museum of Modern Art
  42. prior to being in Casa Tres Patios.
  43. And when they found themself without a
    home, at one point when the museum
  44. changed locations, we invited them to
    inhabit our garage space.
  45. And so, we didn't know if it was going to
    be a temporary arrangement or a long-term
  46. arrangement but that was four years ago.
  47. And we've now developed a symbiotic
    relationship with them.
  48. They work on technological issues,
    they would do workshops with us,
  49. but they also help us with our computer
    systems and things like that.
  50. We're now trying to work with them
    on the administrative side
  51. So they share their knowledge with us
    in their open source sort of way,
  52. which we think is a really healthy way.
  53. And we're trying to actually incorporate
    that in our pedagogical practices,
  54. as in we help them with the administrative
    aspects and we help them with the legal
  55. structure that they need to have to
    perform services and contracts
  56. with the local community and
    the local municipality.
  57. So we've developed this really nice mutual
    collaborative relationship and
  58. - Mhmm
  59. - And we feel very fortunate because
    they're very open with their process.
  60. And the fact that they've shared with us
    their informal education process
  61. has really had a grand impact on the way
    that we perceive the pedagogical practice
  62. because most of us come from traditional
    pedagogies.
  63. And this open source is very utopian, but
    very appropriate for the time we live in.
  64. - Mhmm
  65. - And so we feel very fortunate that we
    have developed a symbiotic relationship
  66. with them.
  67. - And apart from that, what commonplace
    do you see between art and hacking?
  68. - I think
    - Or I mean the developers at all ICTs????
  69. -Yeah, I think that...these days I don't
    like to make those differentiations.
  70. I mean, I think that it's almost
    all the same now.
  71. - Mhmm
  72. - I think that the idea of any kind of a
    development or any kind of questioning,
  73. ...now the idea that art involves some
    sort of an investigation or some sort of
  74. a research prior to creating a piece or
    there's many practices that involve those
  75. kinds of...deep knowledge of some kind of
    subject with the idea of creating a piece
  76. of art that subverts that in a certain way
    or twists it in a certain way
  77. is a very similar practice to what I
    understand hackers do.
  78. They know a system so well they understand
    how they can tweak it or how they can
  79. turn it around, or reuse it
    in a certain way.
  80. So I don't really know that...
    I'm beginning to think that there's not
  81. really a difference, I mean you know we've
    got these different labels but I'm not
  82. sure that it's really very much different;
    I think that it just has a different...
  83. Instead of using sculptural materials or
    paint or photographs it's using technology
  84. ...but hacking how has this more global
    sense about it than it had maybe
  85. ten or fifteen years ago.
  86. And so I sort of think of art as being
    hacking; I don't think of them as being
  87. really that different.
  88. - Okay. Thank you.
    - Mhmm
