MED.EA COLLECTIVE is a group of researchers, artists and activist concerned with realizing inter-disciplinary research projects in the geopolitical zone of Europe and the Mediterranean. It is a critical audiovisual research on politics, which explores also the methods, forms and media of visual arts and research.
VISUAL ARTS & CRITICAL RESEARCH & POLITICS
The projects functions as a laboratory of critical analysis among colleagues who use documentary production as a bridge for interpretation, to connect practice, disciplines, geographic contexts and time. It is a space for critical discussion and knowledge sharing, through which ideas migrate and influence each other.
The Mediterranean is as a region of a multitude of trans-cultural constellations. The processes of transformations of the last 15 years, in particular since the widely spread civil engagement, forces us to re-think about the political paradigms that constitute the regional integration on economic, social and cultural levels. The spaces of socio-political dialogue and activism emerging in that context constitute the background of the collective’s initiative. Through our activities we seek to connect these spaces and produce a diverse network of visual artists, researchers and social-political actors, who transgress the limitation of disciplines and political spaces.
