“The next instant, do I make it? or does it make itself?”

 

SBC launched its second Focus Program, Água Viva, in the Winter of 2015. This long-term research project emerges out of Clarice Lispector’s 1973 book of the same title and seeks to expand on SBC's practice of living research: artists, writers, architects, musicians, curators and other cultural practitioners have been invited to think together and to develop projects through and around this extraordinary piece of prose. Dispensing with narrative while dwelling in the “secret harmony of disharmony,” the Focus Program, like Clarice's Água Viva, seeks to pull at the threads that articulate shifting political subjectivities, modes of address and the complexities between “you” and “I.”
