Venice - Exhibition

Time, Forward!

V-A-C Foundation Venice

11 May 201920 Oct 2019

The exhibition seeks to question the notion and function of time and how it relates to new forms of consciousness, action and sight in the twenty-first century. V–A–C Foundation has commissioned 13 new works, some site-specific, by emerging and internationally acclaimed artists for Time, Forward!. The artists activate a collaborative dialogue intertwining their ideas and they were asked to imagine and suggest strategies to cope with the accelerated digital time.

The End – A Trilogy of Ending

Performance by Strasse

Strasse’s site-specific itinerant performance is born from the observation of the public space and of the human dynamics that define it. With this work the group invites the public to walk through the city and attend a series of endings taken from everyday life, creating a series of objective frames, which could be followed by the end credits.

Death Cafe with Davide Sisto

The Death Café consists of three open debates on death and illness, each of which will deal with a specific focus. The cycle opens with a meeting moderated by the visual artist Diego Marcon, whose practice deals on the transitory human condition; it continues with the appointment, mediated by the specialist in Tanatology Ines Testoni, that addresses the themes of physical death and the processing of mourning and it finally ends with a reflection on death in the digital era, in an event led by the researcher Davide Sisto.
