The Relationships beyond Images Conference – Day Four at Fondazione Feltrinelli: Videos of Anton Vidokle

he Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation of Milan hosts the fourth appointment of “The Relationships beyond Images” (Le Relazioni oltre le Immagini) program, a series of conferences exploring the current trends in public art and analyzing their relation with contemporary social space. This series is part of the “ArtLine Milano” public program, a City of Milan public art project based in the CityLife Park.

Can a public art project start or develop as an educational process? Should we understand workshops as participatory strategies or as tools towards ethical and aesthetic objectives? Should participation always be an essential objective of art projects set in public spaces?

The aim of this conference day is to analyze the relationship between art practices set in the public sphere and experimental pedagogy, through a comparison between art education taking place within educational institutions, and forms of non-formal education that initiate collaborative and participatory projects or are developed in artist- and curator-run spaces, aimed at creating shared experiences and raising methodological and social questions that affect other models of community.

Speakers:Mary Jane Jacob, Pascal Gielen, Anton Vidokle, Emanuela De Cecco, Cesare Pietroiusti, Marco Scotini.

Moderators: Cecilia Guida, head of the ArtLine public program, Roberto Pinto, ArtLine coordinator.
