Between You and Me

Text translated by: Alberto Pousa Torres

To share her multidisciplinary task and create communication links, is part of the aesthetic aim that has been considered by the Mexican artist Rosa Matilde Jiménez Cortés to incubate the project "EntrevistaArtista" in 2009. 

Interviews to the Other coming from Her, that by adopting the role of interlocutor ends up being a mirror; a reflected multifaceted look between questions and answers, a frame of lives from her guests as it is through the Other, she sees Herself.

The scope of Rosa Matilde uses to interview and disclose such work, covers the electronic and print media, taking in the newspaper "El Sol de Cordoba" her most broadcast platform since March 2007 with the "Crusade MaJiCor Conquer" and " No-Two"

Scheduling interviews to publish is made by the next block of artists: 

- José María Escarastegui Mendoza - videoartista español
Tono Carbajo Villaverde - artista visual español
Montse Huguet Valle - poetisa española
Emil Valev - artista plástico y músico búlgaro
Edgar Dorantes Dosamantes - músico mexicano
Alberto Pousa Torres - artista y filósofo español
Beatriz Ramírez Oviedo - artista visual argentina
Rafael R. Costa - escritor español
- José Antonio Sanchez Pulido - artista plástico venezolano 
Alex Etxebarria Abascal - poeta visual español
Alfonso Pérez de Alba - cineasta y escritor mexicano
micrimen - poeta visual español

EnreVistaArtista is an independent initiative that Rosa Matilde uses to focus her search on the relationship between art and technology and how it can generate opportunities by exploration and analysis based on interviews. Talks are directly and close although there is a continent that separates the look of each other, between you and me.
Between You and Me is an audiovisual piece that Jose María Escarastegui Mendoza did for the official presentation of "EnrevistaArtista", which can be viewed on its Web site AMONARSIEL or on the publications site, Rosa Niña Guerrera. EntrevistaArtista counts with the special collaboration of the engineer Mónica Jiménez Cortés and the writer Alberto Pousa Torres

Thanks for your words, I would love one day to interview you...

If they agree, I will publish the "Discharge " interviews translated from other artists.

A hug to all three,

I am more than happy to co-operate/collaborate with you however, I don't truly qualify myself as an 'artist' outside of the lowest level of Aesthetic Philosophy: that is, I present my work outside of utilitarian parameters (not serving any purpose other than an aesthetic purpose).

I certainly have decades of experience (therefore a proven track record) as a researcher and critic (including critiques). I have also been 'published' as a purported 'artist' over a few decades... but I do not consider myself to be talented. To my mind, everyone else who contributes here is a 'talented artist'. I simply feel privileged to be embraced by a community of 'artists'.

Please note that I am absolutely serious as regards my assessment of my own work/s.

The community of artists coming together here (and growing on a daily basis) is truly magnificent. I would feel honoured to evaluate the works and what I believe to be the fundamental principles behind this forum.

All of my love and respect,

P.S. There are always hits and misses on this site (mainly wonderful hits) which is what makes it such a pleasure to even just peruse the works posted. The fact that anyone who wants to create outside of the elitist norm has a venue in which to present their works is a thrill in itself. The fact that the 'artists' (for lack of a better definition) here are truly impressive is a bonus for which I am truly, truly grateful.

Russell, as the 'founder', would be able to provide you with a better background as to the intentions behind this forum. I believe, however, that the Manifesto expresses it eloquently. All I understand of this venue is no limitations: creative discourse sans-elitism. As with everything else in our comprehension of existence, the apparent simplicity is duplicitous. It is, in fact, complex and open to possibility in a way that the Industry of Aesthetics cannot be. To categorize is stasis.

Art? Not art? Anti-art? Not Dada, not Surrealism, not conveniently categorised and, ergo, not part of the elitist Corporate Industry of Art? Not limited by limitations of genre, ideals and executive decisions? What it is not is self-evident. What it IS can only be discerned in the quality of work posted here. To attempt to define it is to kill it at the grass roots level. To attempt to raise it above grass roots and thinkers is to devalue the rich content. It involves individuals from across the globe, across styles, across the borders of language and culture. It is a recognition of the attempt to homogenise human experience. It is a rebuttal of the homogeneity of human experience. It is an organic homogenisation. It is an inorganic homogenisation.

Each individual involved with this site has their own views, style and story. I find THAT to be the beauty of DISCHARGE. 'IS' is, by the nature of the signifier, too easy to define, frame and (by the act of framing it) another excluder/in itself a definition of exclusion. Once framed, there is no room for growth. This is a rejection of being exclusive. This is inclusive.

When amazing people with equally amazing minds and talents come together it becomes the ultimate venue for discourse/humanity. It becomes - and continues to engage in - active dialogue.

I cannot speak as an 'artist'. I can speak as an individual amidst an ocean of individuals who recognise that individuation is a conceit rather than a tiny component in a far larger and humbling picture. To reject being part of mass identity is tragic. To engage with individual experience as an integral part of a whole is deliciously enlightening.

Solipsism is a ludicrous philosophy. Art as elitism is a perverse philosophy.

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
