with Rimini Protokoll

A project by ZONA K and Casa degli Artisti

The pandemic emergency led to a division of the social components into systemically relevant and not relevant. For many it was also a psychological polarization: between what is essential and what is superfluous. The artistic professions are not among those socially necessary.

Should we think of a world in which art will no longer play a role? Can we imagine a reality that cancels the existence of art and of those who work there? What relationship can art have with each of us in this state of crisis? Is something that has long since gotten stale about to end? Can such a profound crisis be an opportunity?

PHASE NINE || Urban Solo invites us to ask ourselves these questions in the context of the city. Nine important places for art in Milan – some iconic, others unusual – become the stage for nine audio installations which, through interviews with various experts, are confronted with a provocative question: why does art exist and not nothing?

Ekin Bozkurt (sound designer), Chiara Campara (filmmaker), Giulia Oglialoro (author, journalist), Riccardo Tabilio (author and dramaturg) and Francesco Venturi (composer) are the artists that the second open call of Casa degli Artisti on the theme “Work” Selected in March 2020 for the artistic project shared with the German collective Rimini Protokoll.

The work, coordinated and followed by Jörg Karrenbauer and Aljoscha Begrich of Rimini Protokoll in the role of mentors, was completely rethought during the months of lockdown. The theme of work remained central, but he decided to focus in particular on work in the world of culture and art, a theme made even more urgent by the crisis caused by the pandemic. It was decided to work precisely on contingency, considering it an opportunity, investigating the changing perception of spaces and cultural operators.

Rimini Protokoll was founded in 2000 by Stefan Kaegi, Helgard Haug and Daniel Wetzel and over the years has collaborated with various constellations of artists. The goal is to expand the means of the theater in order to create new perspectives on reality. Rimini Protokoll avails itself of the collaboration of experts, whose knowledge and skills go beyond the theater, to produce shows, radio productions and urban interventions that often translate urban spaces and social structures into theatrical formats.
