    Concept
    Attraverso una selezione e presentazione di lavori svolti da artisti / attivatori, di carattere sia documentativo che di ricontestualizzazione, "place beyond borders" pone una serie di domande aperte, con la possibilità quindi di stimolare nuove questioni e prospettive.
    Un luogo eterotopico (come descritto da M. Foucault) immaginato e creato oltre i confini reali di un conflitto territoriale e politico complesso e, allo stesso tempo, luogo di partecipazione e confronto dialogico, per dirlo con Chantal Mouffe un’agonistic public sphere.
    Artisti / attivatori selezionati per la capacità reale di analisi critica e propositiva del e nel contesto mediorientale, presentano opere video e/o poster con interviste, statements e immagini, che indagano il tema del confine, inteso non soltanto come confine geografiico e politico, ma soprattutto come barriera mentale al dialogo e al riconoscimento dell’altro.

    Nel “place beyond borders” è inoltre possibile approfondire le tematiche affrontate attraverso una selezione di libri suggeriti dagli artisti / attivatori coinvolti nel progetto.

    Durante i mesi estivi “place beyond borders” si trasforma in un laboratorio attivo nell’ambito della programmazione didattica di Unidee-Università delle Idee, residenza artistica internazionale. Attraverso l’analisi dei progetti artistici sviluppati, si indagano con gli artisti residenti prospettive di azioni per sollevare un dibattito sul ruolo dell’artista come attivatore di processi di trasformazione del reale.

    Il 6 e 7 luglio Cittadellarte ha organizzato un workshop in relazione al progetto con Rene Gabri,  Ayreen Anastas e Alessandro Petti.
