Based on present issues in the collection from the Museu de Arte Osório César, which has more than 8,000 works produced at Juquery's Psychiatric Hospital, the 2nd Seminar of Culture and Health will bring debates, lectures and artistic presentations with the aim of promoting and bringing together artistic initiatives and medical institutions that work at the confluence of art and mental health care. This year it takes place from September 23rd to 26th, 2020, as part of the program of the 3rd Soy Loco Por Ti Juquery. To follow the recommendations for social distance, it will be carried out and transmitted over the internet, promoting the connection of Brazilian, North American and Swiss experiences, with simultaneous translation into English and Portuguese.

Kaira Marie Cabañas (USA) shares her research on how art produced in asylum contexts was important for the strengthening of art institutions and Brazilian modern art itself. Talking about philosophies of care, representatives of the Juquery Hospital Complex, the Museum of Images of the Unconscious and the Living Museum (USA-Switzerland) present their initiatives. Raquel Fernandes, director of the Bispo do Rosário Contemporary Art Museum, will share the museum's initiatives. Artists who develop their aesthetic research in connection with mental health themes will compose two tables to exchange experiences, culminating in the exhibition of the film “Incomuns”, by Isabela Valent, which portrays inclusive initiatives in the city of São Paulo. Finally, we will have a day dedicated to reflections on life in isolation, with the participation of Paulo Amarante, Pier Paolo Pizzolato, Silvana Jeha, João Queiroz and Abel Luiz. In between the tables, we will have performances by artists and a live participation of the Living Session Band, from the Living Museum (Switzerland).

The seminar is an initiative of the City Hall of Franco da Rocha, sponsored by the Osório César Art Museum, in partnership with the 3rd Soy Loco Por Ti Juquery and the Goethe-Institut.

What the eyes look after

Betto Souza

The verse takes the vehicle of propaganda to expose the emotions of those who read it. And the written word, before always voice, echo senses, feelings "cry smiling". Ten tracks spread between Franco da Rocha and Francisco Morato.

The urban sound intervention Errantes appropriates the frequent association between the ideas of madness, wandering and wandering (among other concepts related to spatial drift) to propose the exhibition of an unprecedented sound piece to be presented in the municipality of Franco da Rocha through cars of sound.

Mail Art Juquery, one time calls

Edmar Almeida + employees

The woodcut work "Time passes like an arrow that moves without being noticed", is transformed into postcards. Addressed to homes of Francoroch residents, the action causes the sender to resend information, rethinking current human relations, borders and natures, freedoms and vigilances, connecting these narratives. Postcards create collaborative writing and connectivity with Juquery and the city.

When I woke up the circus was gone

The Trapaceros Troupe

The Trapaceros Troupe is proud to present “When I woke up, the circus was already gone”, a dip in our childhood memories of when circuses set up their canvases on the banks of the Juquery River. Music, acrobatics, juggling and clowning. Memories

from a time when a car passed by on our street, with a muffled speaker, saying that the circus had already arrived.

An extra-everyday female figure touches reality, born from the imagination of an internal artist with the encounter of the imagination of an artist in a state of social isolation.

The baroque, space belonging to Franco da Rocha, mixes with the history of its residents, crossed by Brazilian contradictions. The dance merges with the walls and alleys where a poetic video dance will be projected.

Letter to days that don't belong to me

Walter da Silva Albertin

"Letter to the days that do not belong to me" is a reinterpretation of the poem "I, Antonin Artaud", by Antonin Artaud. Through the projection of this short film in a building in the city of Franco da Rocha, we intend to reflect the contemporary psychological conditioning in technology, connected not only with the words and disorders of the psyche through time, but also with the means of transmission and its evils. It is to re-signify through visual symbology the daily imbalance in a dystopian future.
