Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto
Organising, Commoning and Instituting in the Mediterranean(s)

curated by Chiara Cartuccia

7-9 November 2022

In preparation to the start of the residencies’ season, UNIDEE organises a meeting event, with the purpose of expanding its scopes to a transregional and trans-institutional scale. During three days of space and time sharing in Cittadellarte, in between conversations and convivial gatherings, invited participants from art institutions and collectives operating in the larger Mediterranean area discuss ways of organising, commoning, thinking and acting together.

Different-scaled organisations have a chance to take into focus their reciprocal examples of expanded curatorship and (para-)institutional practice. The programme delves into the collaborative and transdisciplinary work of the invited guests, in order to map different modes and methodologies of instituting, and so to plot sustainable strategies of exchange of knowledges and resources. Participants explore forms of socio-political, cultural and ecological vigilance in curatorial and educational work, while moving across the expansive geographies of the Mediterranean.

This event aims at forging alliances and building an extended network of possible future collaborators, while starting weaving conversations that will be further developed in the next biennium of the UNIDEE residency programme and beyond.
