About the hANDling Program


The hANDling Program at School of Reparar offers an annual circuit of workshops for the continued attendance of the Modus Operandi AND with Fernanda Eugenio and other embodied tools of the AND Collective, proposing a meeting plan for the sharing and regular practice of our grassroots tools.


In the first semester of 2023, between May and June, we open hANDling in two propositions: a one-week laboratory, which brings the School of Reparar for the first time to Brasilia, and a 4-day workshop-retreat in a nature park, in Guapimirim, Rio de Janeiro. In the second semester, workshops in Portugal are planned, to be announced.


Throughout the year, the hANDling program also offers, in parallel, the singular access to all our practices, through the booking of individual sessions or for small groups, either to deepen the experience lived in the collective circuits or to work on single issues. Also through the hANDling program, it is possible to request, at any time, MO_AND workshops with Fernanda Eugenio tailored to the person or group requesting them. These alternatives are available in the Scheduling Requests section, here:




HANDLING Brasília Laboratory PRACTICES:



Modus Operandi AND

Fernanda Eugenio


The Modus Operandi AND (MO_AND) is a methodology for the ethical-aesthetic, somatic-political and experiential investigation of relationship and reciprocity, based on the radical commitment to repair the Irreparable, created by anthropologist and artist Fernanda Eugenio.


Mobilizing a constellation of concept-tools and game-propositions, MO_AND propitiates the direct and experiential investigation of the mechanisms of living-together, that is, of the composition practiced as ethics of positioning-with, through the exercise of the Reparar: to stop again (re-parar), to make the inventory-invention of the possible each time (reparagem), and to effect repair through the durational care-curation of relationships (reparação). By practicing an embodied consciousness and modes of doing based on the circumscription of the common and the performativity of affect, which place thinking, feeling, and doing on the same plane, MO_AND paves the way for the emergence of collaborative landscapes and territories of sufficiency, based on the co(m)passionate exercise of presence and the reconnection with the sensitive experience of inseparability.

MO_AND offers concrete tools to enhance processes of collaboration, co-learning, and negotiation of coexistence. In particular, it allows the perception of behavioral patterns and relational tendencies, contributing to the development of emotional self-regulation skills, self-management of attention (selection, focusing and coordination of stimuli), and consequent decision making and respective embodiment.


In the scope of the workshops, the 'board game' interface is the one that serves as the basis for sharing, then unfolded into different more complex exercises, with different scales, in the studio or in outdoor space, depending on the group and the duration of the meeting.


In this game there are no pre-established rules, but immanent rules, which emerge from the game itself, that is, from the co-positioning and co-responsibility of those who participate. Through a work of folding and unfolding and direct handling of the materiality of events, it is possible to embody the issues of coexistence, sustainability, creativity, empathy/sympathy, availability to difference, and reciprocity.


The exercises allow participants with the most diverse interests and profiles - coming from any area, having or not previous contact with each other or with the MO_AND - to share the same plane of disquiet, experiencing in an intimate and collective way the ethical-political and affective issues involved in the co-responsive construction of the common.



Re-junctioning Practices

Mariana Pimentel | Rio de Janeiro

AND Lab Cluster

Re-Junctioning Practices experiments with the poetics of agglutination, activating affections of permanence by raising in the body the question "What keeps us together?" From experiments that are inspired by creative processes related to 'gambiarras' - a Brazilian word to refer to (im)provisional and situated solutions -, com-posing collages and mosaics, Re-junctioning Practices proposes to rethink our relationship with the ideas of continuity and maintenance through gaps, fissures and cracks.



Listening and Enunciation Practices

Guiga Mayer, Jaqueline Silva, Luênia Guedes, Rosa Schram | Brasília AND Lab Cluester


We propose practices of listening, collecting and creating sounds and the spaces that give them expression, in the various ways of manifesting, of enunciating. The sound source has its material origin and in its propagation arrives and is altered by the universe of perceptions, and can, at this stage, be enunciated, translated, transduced and amplified. How do we make ourselves available to listen and how do we reverberate what we perceive?


The invitation is to explore and create internal and external spaces; to curate and map reconfigured senses.



Dis-paration Practices

Thaise Nardim | Palmas (Tocantins) AND Lab Cluster


Stop. Repair. Re-stop. To register? To invest in writing the body that narrates past repairs - and, with this, to trigger other stops. From the sense and the functioning of the report - of the field journal, of circumscribing - towards a writing that tells and triggers, that triggers new practices, that triggers for what and who comes after. Dis-paration Practices are actions between the laboratory and the outside, which propose to transpose the practices of the hANDling laboratory into written texts that are experimented on between the narration of what emerged in experience and the proposition of performative programs with potential for other emergencies. Shared with the public after the lab sessions, the dis-parations seek to connect with those who, from other places, follow the movements.
