The Fire Theory is a producer of art, which is supported by the collaborative work of several interdisciplinary bodies, for the production of art, theory, and management of spaces. The purpose of which is the development of knowledge and discussion about the processes related to contemporary art and its relation to the social aspects that generate.

The Fire Theory es una productora de arte, que se apoya en el trabajo colaborativo de diversos entes interdisciplinarios, para la producción de arte, teoría y gestión de espacios. El proposito es desarrollar conocimiento y discusión a través de procesos relacionados a arte contemporáneo y su relación con los aspectos sociales que genera.

CONCEPT

The Fire Theory is a logistical structure built since common elements to many organizational concepts. The lines of action on TFT are based upon hibridation of investigation, activism, experimentation and artistic action, and the constant activity of production. It works under the structure of interchangeable roles and organizates itself through phillosophical applications of the negative space since the need of production, creating on the needs of any project the opportunity of restructuration of process, generating process zones like occupiable spaces, and therefore, the possibility of the artistic project.

It works under the operative principles of planning, production, register and promotion. The concept of the project is an process analogy of the Fire Theory, applied to the dynamic of production and consumption of the artistic project.

"Becoming is creation." Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari Gilles Deleuze mention on their book "A thousand plateaus" (second part of Capitalism and Schizophrenia) the concept of "Becoming", under the phrase "Becoming is creation" the book present us the concept of becoming through a process of desarticulation and reassembling. Through this, the creation turns into a reformulation of being. Which shows us a possibility of "be" and "make" through what is known, but establishing perspectives completely different, therefore, of production. This same concept is the principle of the desarticulative thought, which the structure of conceptual production is based on.

The Fire Theory es una estructura logistica construida a partir de elementos comunes a varios conceptos organizacionales. Las lineas de acción en TFT estan basadas en la hibridacion de la investigacion, el activismo, la experimentación y la acción artística, y en la constante actividad de producción. Funciona bajo la estructura de roles intercambiables y se organiza a traves de aplicaciones filosoficas del espacio negativo desde la necesidad de producción, creando en las carencias de cualquier proyecto una oportunidad de reestructuración de proceso, generando zonas de proceso a manera de espacios ocupables, y por tanto, la posibilidad del proyecto artistico.

Funciona bajo los principios operativos de planeacion, produccion, registro y circulacion. El concepto del proyecto es una analogia ocupativa de la Teoria del Fuego, aplicada a la dinámica de la producción y consumo del proyecto artistico.

"Becoming is creation." Gilles Deleuze y Felix Guattari mencionan en su libro "Las Mil Mesetas" (segunda parte de Capitalismo y Ezquizofrenia) el concepto de "Becoming", bajo la frase "Becoming is creation" el libros nos plantea el concepto de "convertirse" (becoming) a traves de un proceso de desarticulacion y reensamblaje. A traves de esto la creacion se convierte en una reformulacion del ser. Lo cual nos muestra una posibilidad de "ser" y "hacer" a traves de lo conocido, pero estableciendo perspectivas completamente distintas, y por lo tanto, de produccion. Este mismo concepto es el principio del pensamiento desarticulativo, en el cual esta basada la estructura de producción conceptual.

CHECK PRODUCTION CREDITS 2010-2015


If you are interested on the artistic production of El Salvador nowadays and you are looking for new and current faces on the art scene you can check the link below to download a sample of a list of currently active artists working inside and outside the country (we think our diaspora rocks!). TFT doesn't necessarly has something to do with the artist named, and also doesn't have to do necessarly with the production they have. We just think is fair enough to spread the word/k of what El Salvador has to offer beyond violence and death. You can also find this information through Y.ES Contemporary
