Biblioteca comunale "A. Delfini", Modena
Autocritica is a moment of encounter-confrontation between the actors, who participated in the training projects and production of ERT / Cantiere delle Arti, and some Italian theater critics. The participants will be completely free to compare themselves on the manner and on the topics they will choose: according to the structure of the meeting, the critic is the first speaker, and therefore also the conductor of a debate - conversation that will stimulate and pick up the most interesting and useful questions for both sides. Piergiorgio GiacchĂ¨ will be more a coordinator rather than the "coach" of these meetings. The meetings (Friday, May 24 at 15.00 with Renato Palazzi, Saturday 25 May at 15.00 with Franco Cordelli and Sunday 26th 11.00 with Oliviero Ponte di Pino) are not open to the public but will be able to accommodate a limited number of listeners, upon explicit request. Anyone interested can send an e-mail to: email@example.com
27TH MAY at 16.30
Teatro Delle Passioni, Modena
On the 27th of May at 16.30, will take place at Teatro delle Passioni a meeting by Coordinamento Teatro Carcere Emilia Romagna. A "PROLOGO" (PROLOGUE) in the form of open meeting between representatives of the institutions, actors and artists to reflect on the work path of Coordinamento Teatro Carcere Emilia Romagna to be implemented next autumn in collaboration with ERT. CROCEVIE stays for junctions of looks and experience among filmmakers, actors and spectators who normally are not intended to meet, except occasionally in "corners" provisionally open in the programmes of the theaters. A project that sees theater as a vehicle for growth and change for prisoners-actors and the work in prison as an opportunity to verify and re-invent the statutes of theatre for the artists who work there. A cross of experiences to open to the audience as an opportunity of experience and knowledge, as well as to cross stigma and prejudice. The meeting will collect testimonies, reflections, ideas for CROCEVIE of autumn.

The global success of street art has made more indeterminate the boundaries between the act of vandalism and social intervention, between the freedom of artistic expression and the processes of reification. The aesthetics of tags, stencils, posters and counterfeiting has turned from phenomenon of symbolic and illegal guerrilla, mostly lived in a clandestine way, into a merchandise, flaring up in advertising and entering in the culture industry. The same institutions that have fought it without disdaining the use of violence, now cuddle and realize street art’s opportunities, mobilizing a rhetoric of creative city no less media and instrumental of the safe city that banned its demonstrations.
Reflecting on street art, then, means to go into an area dotted by misunderstandings, in which the critical and subversive vocation of art resonates with the deployment of large capital, branding strategies, technologies of government and conformism. But it is this exuberance of meanings, ambiguity and irony that makes it irreducible to any definition of gender, and makes street art a specific object of cultural studies or what Antonio Gramsci called a "philosophy of the impure act, and namely real. "
With this seminar we will try to understand what is the experience of the city that has defined and reflected itself in the parasitic and viral forms of abusive art, in its languages and history, on the not too ideal road that connects a train depot or the terminus of a subway train to the center of the world where the counterculture is auctioned.
VIE DELL’ARTE is a project by Campo della cultura (Fondazione Mario del Monte) in collaboration with Icone (for actions on the walls), Gallery D406 (for the ideation and sale of books), Civic Art Library Luigi Poletti (for the bibliography) and ERT. The initiative is funded by Assessorato alla Cultura della Regione Emilia-Romagna, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena and the Department of Architecture of the University of Bologna.
