Translated: MEMORIES OF THE FUTURE
Memories of the Future is an initiative to bring new Brazilian artists from different fields of activity to discuss New Heritage Approaches, using their own artistic production as a pretext. The project is conceived by Rubens de Andrade, Tre+co lab (Melanie Martins Barroso, Pedro Vitor Costa and Victória Michelini), Luiz Eduardo Rayol and Gabriel Miranda and supervised by Mônica Bahia Schlee.
The project was a partnership between the Hybrid Landscapes Research Group, linked to the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and coordinated by Rubens de Andrade, Associate Professor at the History of Art and Landscape Departments at the School of Fine Arts – EBA/UFRJ and The Tre+co lab is an independent lab for research and interdisciplinary practices in architecture, which aims to dissolve the boundaries between architecture, urbanism, art and design. Founded by three young architects: Pedro Vitor Costa, Melanie Martins Barroso e Victória Michelini. The founders believe that best practices and knowledge are achieved through joint effort. Moreover, they defend collaborative and horizontal work in multidisciplinary research and creation processes alongside private clients and independent initiatives.
The first stage of Memories of the Future consists of a Video-Series with 12 documentary episodes that will be shown during New Heritage Approaches Globinar sessions within Our World Heritage Initiative. Each episode is a 6-10 minute video focusing on one artist and contains an interview recorded in Zoom platform, in which the artist shows her/his artistic production, the work environment during the quarantine, discusses some ideas on memory, heritage and some ideas for the upcoming world. The project unfolds into other stages, which include the publication of a series of books based on the knowledge gathered from the artists’ interviews.
In conclusion, the project Memories of the Future aims to bring together different points of view so that we can reach a new approach to the theme of heritage. By gathering 12 different perspectives from our guests, we intend to deconstruct the canons of heritage and reach new narratives for the memories of the future.
