Description
The zine publication documents "Art Pluriverse", an annual community science series initiated by the Biennale of Western Balkans in 2020 as part of its year-round programme, in connection with the History of Art Laboratory, School of Fine Arts, University of Ioannina in Greece. Art Pluriverse aims to uplift intangible cultural heritage through community science, by engaging communities and the public in co-creative research in close collaboration with artists and researchers. Drawing on art, intangible cultural heritage and open knowledge, the programme foregrounds communities that safeguard local practices, by documenting their artistic heritage and traditional knowledge through open, educative and participatory methods. The collaborative process leads to the co-creation of research-based art and the development of digital community archives based on open-access principles, envisioning an Art Pluriverse for collectively experiencing and sharing tradition anew.
