Rossella Biscotti and Marco Scotini present:
Il festival del proletario giovanile al Parco Lambro (1976)
a documentary by Alberto Grifi.
30’ subtitled in English.

In 1976, the Parco Lambro Festival in Milan became the main event of the so-called Proletariato Giovanile (Proletarian Youth) movement. These were youths who, disappointed by the parties’ politics, turned to counter-cultures. Grifi was hired by the festival organizers in order to film the concerts that took place. However, during those four days he recorded the anti-establishment atmosphere, the debates and confrontations that brought into conflict the festival organizers with the youths, that started with a disagreement over the price of the food sold on site. The docu­mentary of the Il festival del proletariato giovanile al Parco Lambro is one of the few recorded testimonies to reflect the main struggle issues of that generation, their attempts at political organization and the new needs and requirements that were claimed.

Alberto Grifiis considered as one of the very first filmmakers of what has been called the Italian Experimental Cinema.

Disobedience Archive is an exhibition project initiated and curated by Marco Scotini since 2005. It’s an ongoing, itinerant atlas of various contemporary resistance tactics: from direct action to counter-information, constituent practices, and forms of bio-disobedience. Dedicated to the relationship between artistic and activist practices, it’s a user’s guide to the geography of social disobedience: from the Italian social struggles of 1977 to global protests, before and after Seattle through to the current insurrections in the  Middle East and the Arab world. The Italian movement of 1977, with which the Archive opens, is not only a political anticipation with regard to social disobedience but also with regard to a correspondent form of mediatisation. The Italian underground cinema pioneer Alberto Grifi is one of the key figures of this anticipation. Disobedience Archive has been exhibited, among others, at the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven), Nottingham Contemporary, SAPS (Mexico D.F.), Raven Row (London), MIT (Boston), Bildmuseet Umea (Sweden).

Presentazione del volume: Percorsi di ricerca e pratica artistica. NoWHere = No Where Now here – Valeria Muledda | Fear Community – Anja Puntari | To be able to – Eugenia Vanni, Edizioni NABA, Milano 2012

Questo volume – voluto e sviluppato su iniziativa di NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano, a cura di Elisabetta Galasso – nasce come luogo di valorizzazione di tre ricerche artistiche sviluppate nell’ambito del Biennio Specialistico in Arti Visive e Studi Curatoriali presso NABA oltre che come strumento di diffusione alternativo alla forma-tesi.


Tavola rotonda: Arte e ricerca
Prendendo come punto di partenza il nodo centrale della pubblicazione di Muledda-Puntari-Vanni, ci interrogheremo sullo statuto della ricerca artistica e sul suo inquadramento come ambito e metodo di ricerca disciplinare autonomo, nel più ampio spettro della ricerca disciplinare universitaria. Ci focalizzeremo inoltre sulle condizioni di possibilità di una forma d‘indagine che unisca produzione artistica e pratica di ricerca, proponendo non tanto un metodo, quanto forme discorsive e espositive non omologate a quelle delle discipline storico-critiche.


Bookcrossing Zones è una nuova rubrica di approfondimento di Viafarini DOCVA che si focalizza sull’attualità editoriale nell’ambito della ricerca artistica e teorica sul contemporaneo. Ispirandosi al formato della disseminazione gratuita e collaborativa di libri nello spazio urbano, questa rubrica intende fare il punto, attraverso il dibattito vivo, sulla condivisione delle risorse e dei saperi che passa per l’editoria. Nelle giornate di sabato verranno attivate nei locali di DOCVA – a scadenza irregolare e per tutta la programmazione annuale – delle metaforiche “zone di scambio” che assumeranno l’attualità editoriale come spunto e pretesto per discussioni più ampie e profonde sul contemporaneo. “Incrociare un libro” ci permetterà di uscire dal formato standard della presentazione di volumi, prolungando i contenuti editoriali in un forum fisco e virtuale, nello spirito della libertà d’iniziativa che contraddistingue la pratica partecipativa del bookcrossing.
