Brief description of the program


CasaDuna - Centro de Arte, Pesquisa e Memória de Atafona is an artistic residency and cultural center that temporarily is based on Atafona beach, municipality of São João da Barra, north coast of Rio de Janeiro. The city is undergoing an intense process of maritime erosion. This process has been intensified since the 70's. The geological movement that exists here is a natural phenomenon of silting. It is, however, getting stronger by human action in the river that crosses the states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Minas Gerais.
Julia Naidin and Fernando Codeço are the researchers and artists who live and work at CasaDuna, constantly receiving projects that are inserted in this context into a residency to develop individual and /or collective works.


We are a laboratory of aesthetic and sociocultural research, with its main focus in the fields of Contemporary Philosophy and Arts. Constantly seeking autonomous and institutional partnerships for collaboration and concealment of other socio-cultural projects, we offer a space for the production of individual and collective actions.

Ambience

 

The city is marked by its climate and constant transformation, by the effects of the intense action of the wind, sea and soil. Due to a past as a refined seaside resort, the town still boasts some restaurants, bars and small markets for local consumption.
