FRAGMENTS AS A TOOL – Memory and Archeology in Contemporary art

This event curated by Lorenzo Bruni is a cross-reading about one of the latest trends in contemporary art: the use of archives and the archaeological method adopted by artists to reflect not on the identity of a society of the past, but on our present.

Lorenzo Bruni will propose a quick introduction about his research (translated into French by Lisa Costalbano). The screening program involves the screening of four films (with English subtitles) connected to this notion, by artists: Maria Thereza Alves, Rossella Biscotti, Uriel Orlow and Ulla Von Brandenburg, in order to create a moment of encounter, informal debate and reflection about this theme.

Entrée libre et gratuite, dans la limite des places disponibles.
