The desktop of a computer as a "window on the world", which reveals the compromises and contradictions of the time in which we found ourselves in these months: domestic constraint on the one hand and participation in global actions on the other. This is the theme of About Resistance (interfaced), the installation created by the young participants of Museion in the European project "Art Works! European Culture of Resistance and Liberation "together with the artist Alessandra Ferrini. From 18 June, the work will be exhibited at the Cubo Garutti -Piccolo Museion in the Don Bosco district in Bolzano together with Solely You It’s Not, the work produced by the Austrian working group, another partner of the European project. On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition, Thursday 18 June next, the boys and girls participating in the project will be present, from 17 to 18.30, to interact with the passing public, who will be given a voucher for a drink offered at the Café Museion. The public is then invited to take the journey from the Garutti Cube to Museion together with the young people. The project partners will also be present in virtual live, as well as the artist Alessandra Ferrini.
About Resistance (interfaced) is the path taken by the Museion group (Lucia Rose Buffa, Giada Cardillo, Gessica de Oliva, Nicole Fersko, Tomas Grosello, Samira Mosca, Camilla Saiz, Abram Tomasi) with the artist Alessandra Ferrini. Building on the universal values of the Resistance in its historical definition, the work is based on the timeless relevance of the concept in its various forms, including that of the current health emergency, which has conditioned the progress of the project itself. Composed of a banner and a video, the installation reproduces the computer desktop as a window on the world (role historically attributed to the painting) which reveals compromises and contradictions of the time in which we find ourselves: "domestic" spatial constraint and at the same time participation to global actions.
The Cube also hosts Solely You It’s Not, the work produced by the group of the town of St. Pölten in Austria with the collective of artists Ruth Anderwald and Leonhard Grond. The work is composed of photographic portraits of European women who participated in the resistance during the Second World War accompanied by a poem written by Hilde Meisel, an Austrian journalist who with his writings fought the Nazi regime. An audio composed of different voices and languages that repeat the title of Meisel's poem is also part of the work. This first exhibition will be visible until 02.08. From 04.08 to 17.09 the exhibition will follow with the works of the other participating countries, Croatia and Germany. With a view to exchange, the work produced by the Italian Museion group will also be exhibited in rotation at the headquarters of the participating countries: MSU in Zagreb, Stiftung wanseeFORUM in Berlin and the Zeithistorisches Zentrum Melk Memorial.
