An experimental school for transdisciplinary thought in art making and curatorial practice.
Starting in May 2019, Bellas Artes Projects inaugurates
ESKWELA, an experimental school period for
transdisciplinary thought and context-responsive art making.
Acclaimed artists, film theorists, anthropologists, curators,
historians, and dancers from the Philippines and abroad will
lead intensive seminars and workshops within six subjects
structuring the ESKWELA program:
• Queer Filipiniana
• Asia Pacific: Visual Histories of War and Postwar
• Movement & the Choreographic Turn in Performance
• Indigeneities and Contemporary Art
• Context Responsive Art Practice
• Curatorial Delirium
Bellas Artes Projects’ ESKWELA is a reflection on the
moment in which the 1867 Rafael Enriquez y Villanueva
Mansion (BAP’s headquarters in Bataan) once served as the
Escuela de Bellas Artes, the second oldest art school in the
Philippines. With ESKWELA, an alternative form of learning
and teaching is proposed wherein participants may navigate,
debate and share in an interdisciplinary platform content
that are already part of the rich academic field in Manila.
Applications for enrollment to ESKWELA are open to
participants from across fields in the arts and the humanities,
regardless of age. Whether a student, an artist, art historian,
dancer, museum worker, thinker or passionate in linking
cultural production with phenomena in society. There is an
enrollment fee of 800 pesos per seminar. Applicants may
apply to a minimum three of ESKWELA subjects to obtain a
certificate of participation.
