The Link Art Center invites you to follow the project If Art Were to Disappear Tomorrow What Stories Will We Tell Our Kids? (@looongstrshrt), by Roberto Fassone and Giovanna Manzotti, on Twitter and Facebook. When the online project is over, the content will be translated into a book, published by Link Editions.

With If Art Were to Disappear Tomorrow What Stories Will We Tell Our Kids? (@looongstrshrt), Fassone and Manzotti aim to create an archive of tweet-structured texts able to describe contemporary artworks. For example: “A Prada store is built in the middle of the Texan Desert”.

The project tries to synthesize the shapeless mass of images and informations on contemporary artworks stored in our computers and on the web into a simple, functional and orderly structured system, in which the complexity of the art world is partially summarized into the conciseness of one tweet. The project will be first developed as a Twitter based performance, and later converted into a book collecting about 500 tweets: a collection of modern fairy tales or a gathering of anecdotes from an imaginary world in which everything has been destroyed.

 

@looongstrshrt is an archive, a game and hopefully a collective performance. It is an archive because it will stores a huge collection of works, it is a game because these texts will also work as puzzles, and possibly a collective performance because everyone is invited to contribute by sending tweets able to summarize an artwork.
