While in residence Borjana Ventzislavovawill concentrate on research for a new video project called 'Radical Cheerleading' which will deal with the current social and political crisis situation of our so called developed capitalist society. Borjana intends to compile texts that will serve as the base for lyrics of political protest songs, collecting such texts from different sources as well as from meetings with different communities. The text will not only contain critique on the system but also ideas and proposals for possible or/and utopian solutions.
Borjana will create cheerleading teams from people of all ages from all over Europe and North America who will perform the texts in the way of 'Radical Cheerleading'.
