The Importance of Being Context – Documentation

The Importance of Being Context – Documentation

The Importance Of Being Context is the result of a collaboration between curator Valeria Mancinelli and artist Roberto Fassone. The web project is an online archive that collects the result of their activity of the last few years collecting documentation of well known art performances, mainly from the 60’s and the 70’s. The work is an open invitation to think about performance, its proximity to daily life, the importance of the artistic context in turning a simple action into an art work, the uncanny valley between art performance’s protocols and popular games. The exhibition is organized in a series of three screenings titled MOVING, TOUCHING, FEELING.




Here are some images of the exhibition documenting the first and second screening of the show. The third screening of the show titled FEELING will be online on September 19.












This project is realized in the framework of Masters & Servers, a joint project by Aksioma (SI), Drugo more (HR), Abandon Normal Devices (UK), Link Art Center (IT) and d-i-n-a / The Influencers (ES) that was recently awarded with a Creative Europe 2014 – 2020 grant. For 24 months from now, Masters & Servers will explore networked culture in the post-digital age.
