Exploring Resilience presents the result of a reflection on the topic of resilience carried out at Peninsula Lab during February and March 2015.

Peninsula Lab is a space dedicated to experimentation within the non-profit cultural association Peninsula, a multidisciplinary platform for cultural exchange based in Berlin.

Exploring Resilience starts from the notion of resilience – the capacity of a system to overcome a change – as a trait feature proper to an artist, both in terms of creative thinking as in his or her relationship with the everyday, such as the ability to imagine other possibilities and realities. Exploring Resilience unfolds this notion as a trigger of a constant and fecund enrichment process, in which art finds an ideal place to question itself and operate by exploring the different connotations of this term. This includes its urban, social, biological and psychological dimensions. Exploring Resilience takes shape in a dialogical space in which the reflections shared within Peninsula Lab combine with the impulses brought by external actants, including psychologists, architects, political experts and scientists. In this context, the topic of resilience follows the thematic line that characterizes Peninsula: the concept of “Third Culture” as “Third Space”, an idea of culture that rebuilds and rewrites itself constantly beyond cultural legacies and national geopolitical boundaries.
