Join us for an online hybrid closing activity of the Philippine Pavilion and Open Collectives at the 17th International Venice Architecture Biennale. This virtual gathering celebrates the Philippine Pavilion’s Structures of Mutual Support and the Open Collectives’ Architecture for an Equitable Digital Economy. In both installations in Arsenale, film, architectural installations, and texts explore the relationship between the solidarity economy, art, and architecture. On the one hand, art and architecture forge new cultural imaginaries, vocabularies, and civic structures to enable mutualist groups to flourish and gain visibility. On the other hand, the co-creative process galvanizes its participants, inciting new imaginative futures. This activity brings together leading thinkers and practitioners whose international perspectives bring the intersection between art, architecture, and mutualism to the fore.

Mutual support is a mode of self-organization and collaboration for communities to build resilience and to support each other through adversity or crisis, such as the changing seasons, natural disasters, and armed conflict. It exists in many forms around the world and its principles are rooted in empathy, care, and reciprocity. The Norwegian Dugnad, Brazilian Mutirão, and the Filipino Bayanihan are specific expressions of mutual support systems. Structures of Mutual Support is a critical exploration and enactment of mutual support as a method of architectural praxis that engages issues of resilience, transformation, climate change, and structures of power and resistance.
