Talk Show is focused on the art and politics of conversation.

Buckley Jr., Jennifer Chan, Alan Conter, Heather Davis, Pip Day, Livia Daza-Paris, Les Entrepreneurs du Commun, Dominique Fontaine, Michael Hardt, Rob Horning, Guillaume Lambert, Clarice Lispector, Chris Lloyd, Stéphane Martelly, jake moore, Huey P.

“The next instant, do I make it? or does it make itself?”
Talk Show launches SBC’s second Focus Program: Água Viva. 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 will be 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”.
el instituto, currently headquartered in Mexico City, is a not-for-profit organization that generates exhibitions, conferences, workshops, courses and platforms for other events. el instituto is committed to the exploration of the overlap between art, culture, politics, activism and human rights theory and practice, both locally and internationally. Having no physical site of its own, el instituto functions symbiotically, hosted by cultural or academic institutions, while also operating in less official spaces and capacities.
SBC wishes to thank the CCA, Oboro, Skol & Les Territoires.
