The Institute of Things to Come 2020: The Convention of Restorative Anatomy and Prosopopeia

Exhibitions, public programs and an associates programme supporting new productions for emerging practitioners readdressing the notion of normality and alterity

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Via Modane, 16, 10141 Turin, TO, Italy

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, hosts The Institute of Things to Come 2020, an itinerant art programme aimed at investigating forms of imaginative speculation as cultural strategies and methodologies for critical positions, running March 5 – December 11, 2020. Founded in 2017 by curator Valerio Del Baglivo, each year The Institute focuses on a different theme, inviting artists to present works that interact with other disciplines.
Titled “The Convention of Restorative Anatomy and Prosopopeia”, this year the programme discusses the category of alterity in opposition to recent years globally-expanded populist politics and their discourses and positions of identity monoculture and distinction. In 2020, The Institute will be transformed into a laboratory for experimental anatomy, where modes of bodily regeneration, metabolic transformation, personification, and physical/mental prosopopeia occur to question whether it is possible to contrast politics of sovereignty, belongings, heteronormativity, and identitarianism. The invited artists engage with forms of embodiment that play between authenticity and imagination, to question the above mentioned political issues exploring with bio-political fiction, gender materiality and counter forms of biographism.
