SELF-MISTAKE IN THE INVISIBLE

Self-Mistake creates contexts for research and development projects translating the invisible as matter for transformation.

The creation happens throughout a process in which it is essential to give time and space so that the result of the artistic work does not become a mere consumer product. Self-Mistake promotes creation free of constraints and pressures, based on an incentive to change the normative logic of process speed and over-production. This support seeks to provide conditions for creation to happen in freedom. It is necessary to give time to the senses and to thought, to ideas and their development...
SELF-MISTAKE IN THE INVISIBLE encourages research and artistic development in diversified areas. The program creates conditions for artists to develop work on the margins of what has become conventional, in order to find their space of existence and growth.
