XII International Architecture curatorial open call
Biennale of São Paulo FROM THE POLITICAL CITY TO COSMOPOLITICAL ALLIANCES summary of the proposal: How can architecture, with its ability to produce subjectivities, engender new ways of existence capable of activating cosmopolitical alliances, multiplicities, and magic? How can it harness the energy of a city divided by the speculation of life? Architecture is a result of but also subject to a worldview that produced the concept of the City as the paradigm of the supremacy of certain cultures over others, especially of men over other living beings, the sovereignty of unicist - rationalist knowledge - over other interpretations of life: all the concrete sacred relations of knowledge, visions of the world, systematically expelled from the meaning attributed to constructive practices by Western civilization. In order to become a mangrove architecture, made fertile by the compositions of an urban ecosystem, we believe, we must pay attention to a cosmopolitics of places. To inhabit a land, this city, under the sign of diﬀerence, of multiplicities, as opposed to the universalizing and the anthropocentric, through practices of cultivating ways of existence that resist the forces of extermination of life. In the Guarani language, a tekoha is a place where one practices a way of existing which resists. We wish to compose an atlas of re-existences, moving from the political city to cosmopolitical alliances, where an ecological perspective is not dissociated from the composition of a city. We seek to activate the cosmopolitical imagination and its practices; its technologies, ‘technomagics,’ and the resonances between its varied territories.
From the Political City to Cosmopolical Alliances Looking back at the eleven previous International Architecture Biennials, since its ﬁrst edition in 1975 with the theme "The environment that man organizes", we can see that man has always occupied a privileged and central place in the relationship with the space he builds and lives. This position is supported by an exhausted idea of city, politics, architecture and urbanism, a target of recurrent criticism. It does not however address the foundations of this structure, anthropocentrism. For this reason, we align ourselves with the interpretation given by the anthropologist Renato Sztutman to possible resistances:
The struggles and resumption of lands of the Guarani in the municipality of São Paulo teach that resistance in the Anthropocene does not consist in an absolute denial of the city as a place for the realization of capitalist barbarism, but in the creation of interstices capable of harboring new modes of existence, new forms of life and of connection with the land. It is the never-unifying connection between diﬀerent modes of reactivating, resuming what was or what is being threatened that a more potent political creation could emerge. (Renato Sztutman - Reclaim the earth, or how to resist in the Anthropocene - Anthropocenas project).
The concept of cosmopolitics1, as coined by the philosopher of science, Isabelle Stengers, in this neologism, is devoured by us, then becomes a powerful counterpoint to address the paradigms of an architecture in a state of becoming-mangrove2 in this curatorial project. We start from it as a perspective, input and theme for a Cosmopolical Alliance, composing an atlas3 of territories and forces linked to ways of existing in contemporary cities, especially in São Paulo, that resist a certain asphyxiation of the Anthropocene4. It is therefore in this Biennial to create gaps to breathe: thought, bodies, the city, in a healing action to decelerate everything. Maritime delays on ﬁrm ground. From the political city to cosmopolitical alliances: reactivating the magic, the earth and the imagination in the establishment of exercises, practices, exchanges, desires, cares. Thus, we look at architecture and urbanism from a transversal perspective, where we go through other areas of creation and thought, as potencies capable of putting us in the here, now. The 1
The "cosmopolitical" proposition, as I shall attempt to characterize it, is not intended primarily to the "generalists". It only makes sense in concrete situations, where practitioners work; and it requires practitioners ... In other words, this proposition has no strict meaning in most concrete situations of today, but it proposes to accompany those who have already realized the "political movement" associated with ecology political, and who have learned to laugh not at theories, of course, but at the authority associated with them. (Isabelle Stengers - A Cosmopolitical Proposition). 2 The mangrove is an ecosystem of extreme fertility, with vigorous ecological, social and economic importance. Brazil has one of the largest mangrove habitats in the world, ranging from the mouth of the Oiapoque River (Amapá State) to the Municipality of Laguna (Santa Catarina State). 3 When we put diﬀerent images - or diﬀerent objects, like the cards of a deck, for example - on a table, we have a constant freedom to modify its conﬁguration. We can make constellations. We can discover new analogies, new paths of thought. (...) A table is not used to establish a deﬁnitive classiﬁcation, nor an exhaustive inventory, nor to catalog once and for all - as in a dictionary, a ﬁle or an encyclopedia - but to collect segments, sections of fragmentation of the world, to respect its multiplicity, its heterogeneity. And to give legibility to the relations put in evidence. (Georges Didi-Huberman, Atlas - how to take the world to the back?). 4 A concept recently introduced in international discussion panels on climate change and that tries to problematize the relationship between humans and the climate (or the "environment" that surrounds them); the scene inhabited and transformed by man: our atmosphere.
experience we have of architecture is a result, but also subject, of a worldview that produced the concept of City that conveys a practice of Politics that has as a paradigm the supremacy of certain cultures over others, especially of men over other living beings , of the man on the nature and of the hierarchy of the masculine on the feminine. Western culture, with its colonialist civilization practice of exclusion and extermination of diﬀerence, opted to privilege reason to the detriment of other human and non-human faculties of knowledge in attempts to impose a monoculture at the expense of erasing other forms of culture and cultivation of life and all its concrete sacred relationships, which were systematically expelled from the meaning attributed to constructive practices. This experience, as we know it, preserves in its merit a continuous erection of cities, of constructing and organizing spaces destined to the inequalities of all kinds: segregation, misery and, ultimately, extermination of cultures, humans, animals, minerals in mass, in their practices of annihilation of natures and supernaturals. Brazil, with its vast experience of 518 years of control and massacre of a large part of the population, has organized the city geographically and institutionalized as an extended perverse practice the senzala and the settlements, taken here not only in the urbanistic architectural sense ﬁrst, but as urban architectural programs that consist of expelling or withdrawing populations of black and indigenous origin, but also those regarded as poor, from their original lands, forcing them to segregate in the peripheries of the territories, through the macabre technologies of gentriﬁcation, of the favelas, of the ghettos, imposing a dependency of the guardianship of the state. This massacre is not restricted only to the peoples, but also during these 518 years the extermination of the vegetal cover of the land and the channeling and decay of the water were naturalized, as an instrument of transformation of the peoples into poor, from the usurpation of what they guarantee an autonomy in relation to the State, since the rivers, the forests, the land, and the knowledge that comes from these relations, are fundamental agents of interlocution of their Cosmopolitical practices. Programs of perversion constructed to give passage to the glorious Cities, with as much artiﬁce and conviction in this process as necessary to conceal a unique and unequivocal path of urbanization and development. Thinking of development from the extermination of ancestral knowledge and popular culture, this victorious architectural practice was able to institute and propagate in an unbounded way an idea of the City, with the genocidal and ethnocidal silencing of modes of existence and construction that established deep pacts with the earth and all living things. Barring in this way, that other ways of life and other living beings participate in the construction and governance of the space where they live and coexist. Faced with the urgencies of this time, and the most diverse and deep crises that the idea of City and Politics sustain and build, it is necessary to look at other ways of life that re-exist in front of this insistent program of exclusion and extermination.
Other peoples contemporary to the age of the anthropocene, from the forests, to the great urban centers, create and are witnesses of other ways of interpreting thinking and constructive practices - Quilombos, Tekohas5, Terreiros, Ocupações, Mutirões, Settlements, Theaters, Parks, Forests, Urban Villages, etc. - bound by a deep sense of belonging to a land, and not of a grotesque appropriation under the aegis of property; connected in a political pact with all other living beings, marked by cultivation and not by the extinction of diﬀerence as production of life; and considering sacred practices and the arts as subjects of architectural thought. 5
Holy Land for the Guarani peoples
A Politics that includes the Cosmos in its composition, incorporates all other living beings within the processes of construction of spaces and their decisions, and is manifested in constructive practices interpreted by this proposal of curation as multiple ways of life that approach the diﬀerence in a Cosmopolitical Alliance6, to be mapped and presented during the XII Biennial. This Cosmopolitical Alliance calls into question the anthropocentrism that underlies hegemonic architectural thought, because it perceives the human being not as protagonist, but as one among so many other subjects, forces and agents that produce, think, construct and organize space. This Cosmopolitical Alliance carries within itself an antidote against the destruction of the ecosystem, since it understands every living being as a political subject of rights7, in the very perspective of a political ecology, an idea that has been richly developed by anthropologists such as Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, Manuela Carneiro da Cunha and the architect Paulo Tavares, among others. Many people have in their practices the sense of ecology, but in an extended, cosmic, sacred ﬁeld. The current and very widespread concept of sustainability in architecture only acts as a maintenance of a presumed ecological balance and natural resources and only serve to sustain the old relationship of domination of men over nature, interpreting everything that is alive as a great reserve for man to serve himself. Unlike an economy of precariousness in the sense of material misery or the narrow rationing so widespread in the economic sciences, of producing more with less, it is in the practice of urban planning, in the production and thinking of cities, especially social housing, which hides the proﬁt of some on the material misery of others. The cosmopolitical view transcends the anthropocentric vision that still remains intact in sustainable development. The constructive action and livelihoods of these peoples, whether in forests or in large urban centers, increased and still increases the abundance and diversity of the ecosystem by their co-adaptation between them and the environment, "in other words, a good portion of the Amazon is the result of millennia of human manipulation. Contrary to what one would imagine, in fact, anthropogenic forests present greater biodiversity than undisturbed forests."8 In the Political City, what is at stake is the production of the extinction of diversity, therefore of life, and the silencing of biodiversity, using architecture and urbanism as instruments of oppression to carry out this project. In contrast, a cosmopolitical practice carries within itself the fertility of becoming-mangrove, multiplying life through constructive practices that take place through agency and exchange between human and non-human subjects. There is a world order conveyed to the idea of a city which, because it produces ultimate consequences, extermination and genocide, requires much of Architecture and architects. The urgency puts us before an inventive solution, of powerful and strong creation. The diagnosis of bankruptcy of other ways of thinking architecture, puts us in the face of the failure to continue trying to resuscitate models that no longer respond to the issues of our time. Urgency produces radicality. And these groups mentioned above, because they are the target of this extermination, 6
It is important to diﬀerentiate the sense of belonging to a land from the feeling that the land belongs to me that brings with it the idea of property, of objectiﬁcation of the other. Exactly there, we can see the chasm that separates the Political City from the Cosmopolitical Alliance. 7 Nature, no longer understood as an inert object available for limitless appropriation, should be understood as a participant subject of a form of "social contract" that covers everything we exclude from our deﬁnitions of society. History has made human beings equivalent to natural forces; in contrast, Serres concludes, nature should be endowed with rights similar to those conquered by humans throughout history. (Non-Human Rights - Piseagrama). 8 CASTRO, Eduardo Viveiros de. The Inconstancy of the Wild Soul.
operate in this radicality and present constructive results alternative to the crisis of the anthropocene. Instead of seeking a messianic solution in architecture to respond to this crisis, highlighting the Cosmopolitical Alliance as the theme for the XII Biennial of Architecture makes us look at those who are already producing other ways of life, and other architectural practices for so long , and which, however, are insistently silenced, disqualiﬁed and invisible by the dominant Politics. Our curatorial proposal is dedicated to investigate, researching these diverse ways of life, identifying their varied architectural and constructive practices, national and international, from the perspective of the Cosmopolitical Alliance, in order to map them and bring them to the foreground , as subjects of an architectural discussion and possible paths in response to the current crisis. Encouraging the exchange, meeting and exchange of knowledge between diverse and related worlds, often distant, with the purpose of strengthening and spreading this Cosmopolitical Alliance. This will be done through an exhibition, a series of lectures / workshops, three debates, a digital publication on the process and its ﬁnal results, and as actions / workshops the establishment of six Construction Sites that will remain active during the three months of XII BIA. Working as catalysts for exchange of knowledge, workshops, practices of mutirão, but also the spaces that will receive the exhibition, the cycle of lectures and debates. These sites will be chosen taking into account the pertinence of the ways of life there cultured resonating with the proposed theme. We will be attentive so that the choice of these places occurs in a coherent way with the dimension of the territory of the city of São Paulo, contemplating its ﬁve macrozones and taking into account the disproportion of the south zone where two spaces will be chosen.
The curatorial team is formed by people who work or already worked with territories or architectures fruit of a Cosmopolitical action. We can mention the Teat(r)o Uzyna Uzona Architectural project of the architects Edson Elito and Lina Bo Bardi and their insertion in the neighborhood of Bixiga, the indigenous villages Guarani Mbya Kalipey, Tenondé Porã in Parelheiros and Tekoa Yvy Porã in Jaraguá, Terreyro Choreographic and its work at the shallows of the viaduct Júlio de Mesquita Filho, the Park Augusta, the terreiro of candomblé Banto Redanda, etc. Choices will be made during the ﬁrst few months of pre-production from intense research and visits to potential locations. We have chosen for the opening and closing of the XII BIA, two architectures that express this Cosmopolitical relation. Architectures organized and structured by non-human agents, in the case of MASP, emptiness is the main protagonist of the place, and in Teat(r)o Oﬁcina the architecture is organized by the central ﬁre of the pyre, by the water of the source, to the emptiness of a track that gives way to air and wind, at the same time as the cesalpina of the garden is thrown into the space of the outside and takes us along with it - windmills to the Bixiga.
central programming I) AN EXPOSURE; - The exhibition From the Political City to Cosmopolitical Alliances will happen in two ways. One: the six chosen Cosmopolitical Territories will be part of the exhibition as urban architectural works exposed to the public in the 1: 1 scale. Second way: from the proposed theme create an expograﬁa that shows the structures and consequences of these two modes of production of space, of the Political City in contrast with the Cosmopolitical Alliance. II) A CYCLE OF LECTURES; - from the research and studies conducted during the pre-production of the XII BIA, we will invite six speakers, national and / or international who have experience with the theme proposed to give a two-day workshop and give a lecture. Both the workshop and the lecture will take place in one of the six chosen Territories, contemplating each one of them. The choice of the guest in relation to the Territory will be considered taking into account the potentialities of the meeting and the exchange of knowledge between both. III) A DEBATE; - three debates approaching the Cosmopolitical experience of the most recurrent and / or dominant practices and thoughts of architecture. Agents and thinkers who are spokesmen for these two diﬀerent worldviews of the Political City and the Cosmopolitical Alliance will be invited. IV) A DIGITAL PUBLICATION ON THE PROCESS AND FINAL RESULTS; - the publication shall be drawn up and made public throughout the entire duration of the XII BIA. The content of the lectures, workshops, debates, development of the Construction Sites projects, critical texts, reﬂective texts, etc. will be shared with the public, all content produced from the elaboration to its realization through videos, texts, photos, etc. V) TWO ACTIONS, OFFICES, OR INTERVENTIONS WITH MISCELLANEOUS PUBLICS. - we are calling Construction Site the proposal of actions / workshops that will take place during the XII BIA. Each of the six chosen Cosmopolitical Territories will also be part of the exhibition of the From the Political City to Cosmopolical Alliance as architectural works on the 1: 1 scale and will receive workshops and lectures. Our expository proposal calls into question the object of exposure that in the case of an Architecture Biennial is the city itself, an object that is placed on a 1: 1 scale. In this sense, we are proposing both the displacement of the architectural object, as in the more traditional molds of an architecture exhibition, changing its scale. As well as going up to the object, including it in the display respecting its range. Thus we seek to highlight these six listed Territories, as points of the city's neuralgic. By proposing to think and transform in an act what is being questioned in the curatorial project, through the Construction Site, that although they last only three months of the Biennial, will be a trigger of a permanent transformation and questioning of these places. OBS: Zero fare bus to travel between Biennial program (s)
auxiliary programs Opening of the XII BIA in Teat(r)o Oﬁcina. A moment to celebrate the beginning of the Biennial but also a trigger of all the issues that will be worked during the three months of the Biennial. We understand Teat(r)o Oﬁcina as a meeting point to be perceived the connections that the Biennial is proposing with these listed Cosmopolitical Territories. During the opening we propose to transform the Teat(r)o into a space that somehow brings information about these Territories, through the presence and expression of the communities. Viewing of ﬁlms in various spaces of the city. Throughout the three months of the Biennial exhibit ﬁlms that dialogue with the proposed theme in relation to the places where they will be exhibited, evoking and showing tensions, contrasts between the Political City and Cosmopolitical Alliances. Closing of the XII BIA in the open space of the MASP (Sunday or holiday because it is closed for cars). The proposal is a Public Act of celebration of the Cosmopolitical Alliance with artistic curation to be deﬁned.

The essential are the intercessors. creation are the intercessors. without them there is no work. they can be people - to a philosopher, artist or scientist; for a scientist, philosophers or artists - but also things, plants, even animals, as in Castaneda. Fictitious or real, animate or inanimate, one must manufacture his own intercessors. (DELEUZE, Gilles, 2010, p.160)

dissemination plan AND COMMUNICATION XII BIA RADIO-WEB-TV
The XII BIA RADIO-WEB-TV is a tactical media initiative with a total duration of three months throughout the event, which takes the form of pop-up radio stations and an online platform for the photographic and audiovisual transmission and archiving of the exhibitions , lectures, debates, actions, workshops, tours and interviews. The radio will interact with the entire XII BIA event creating a sphere of public-digital exchange. This public-digital sphere will connect with other free media channels and also with the mainstream media through press and social media. The transmission processes (via web and FM radio stations) and documentation (online platform) will be housed on the XII BIA web site. XII BIA RADIO-WEB-TV will also provide the necessary support for live translations of conversations, lectures and meetings. Its infrastructure consists of a ﬁxed base and a nomadic device. The ﬁxed base will be implanted in the six Construction Sites of the XII BIA, in territory to be deﬁned by the curatorship of the event. It will function as a support space to organize the mappings, methodologies, previous conversations with the partners, storing the equipment, the nomadic device and recording all the events. Its nomadic device is a mobile radio-web-tv unit mounted on a cart, allowing the radio to be moved to record the visits and itineraries around the six territories of the XII BIA. With this initiative, we intend to encourage the transmission and dissemination power of radio-web-tv as a means of communication, promoting the interaction between the XII BIA experiments, engaging them with existing new technologies and sharing their knowledge and their way of life through the collected and archived contents, available to the common, public and universal access. The XII BIA RADIO-WEB-TV will be coordinated and produced in partnership with Jacob Moe (USA). Moe is co-founder and director of the Syros International Film Festival. Over the past ﬁve years, he has created and hosted radio shows in Los Angeles, California, Athens, Greece, and more recently in São Paulo, on USP Radio 93.7 FM.
