 Casa Duna

Casa Duna - Centro de Arte, Pesquisa e Memória de Atafona, é uma residência artística e produra cultural que se instala temporariamente na praia de Atafona, município de São João da Barra, litoral norte do Rio de Janeiro. O local vem sofrendo um intenso processo de erosão marítima.

Somos um laboratório de pesquisa estética e de ação sociocultural com foco principal nos campos da Filosofia e das Artes, instalado numa paisagem em constante movimento. Propomos uma pesquisa que é ação de intervenção estética, política e social. O interesse se volta para a experiência de vivenciar este território em seus aspectos ambientais e culturais.

 

Os temas da destruição e da catástrofe, bem como o da resistência, da adaptação e da reinvenção de significados ecoam, neste espaço específico, com a possibilidade de inscrição da experiência artística na paisagem e na vida das comunidades e em suas potências sociais. 

Percebemos a urgência de novas proposições micropolíticas, que visem a ressignificação poética e funcional da vida humana em seu espaço geográfico e cultural.

Also the Paraíba River, almost without water and without force to push the sand it brings in its walk, has lowered much of the level, allowing the sea to invade the Pontal of Atafona. The sea has eaten more than 300 houses, three streets, two restaurants, a gas station, a beach soccer field and even threatens the Atafona Lighthouse, some 100 more houses and totally destroy the once beautiful Pontal region.

Casa Duna - Atafona's Art, Research and Memory Center, is an artistic residence and cultural producer that is temporarily located in Atafona beach, municipality of São João da Barra, north coast of Rio de Janeiro. The place has been undergoing an intense process of maritime erosion.
We are a laboratory for aesthetic research and socio-cultural action with a major focus in the fields of philosophy and the arts, set in a constantly moving landscape. We propose a research that is action of aesthetic, political and social intervention. The interest turns to the experience of living this territory in its environmental and cultural aspects.
The themes of destruction and catastrophe, as well as that of resistance, adaptation and reinvention of meanings, echo in this specific space with the possibility of inscribing artistic experience in the landscape and life of communities and their social powers.
We realize the urgency of new micropolitical propositions, which aim at the poetic and functional resignification of human life in its geographical and cultural space.
