Art for change

Contemporary cities are much more complex than the ones we have inherited from our forebears. Organisms in continuous grow, heterogeneous, strati ed, multiethnic and clutte- red. We feel them distant from our needs, often uncomfortably and dangerous spaces where to let our children grow. But something is happening all over the world. A new and extraordinary process of regeneration and transformation that is getting back humans to their vital spaces. Tiny but tangible bottom-up revolutions in which new technologies and art are helping communities to change their places, their cities.

The first season of Art for Change will recount in 5 episodes, shot in the Southern Europe, the stories of common people involved in tiny revolutions which are changing the face of our suburbs. Every episode of the series will open with an overture that, using a voice o and animated cartoons, will introduce the core theme. After this we will meet the people, hearing the voices of citizens, social operators, artists and architects involved into these 5 marginal outskirts of Italy, Albania and Spain. We will close every episode with a particular focus on the follow-up of every project, giving space to children, leading characters of these changing communities.
Our work will describe stories which are geographically distant from each other, but closely connected through the artistic research developed in marginal places all over the world, into ‘ghettoized’ communities which nd into art a place where re ect on their own future. We will recount stories of common people, dreamers and artists that, all over the world, are trying to change their places with tiny but extraordinary revolutions.

Bajkonur, Earth

a longing for the stars, as seen through kids’ eyes

For centuries and centuries only few brave caravan routers and merchants dared to cross by camel that ocean of dry land and dry grass that the Kazakh desert is: there was no place to rise a city, there was nothing worth fighting for. It has always been like this; since the dawn of times, until in 1953 a nameless portion of desert, on the shores of Syd Darya river was invaded by an “alien” specie of which all the locals only heard about, since it appeared they were their governors, but that only few of them managed to see in person: the Russians.

The Russians noticed in that slice of dry land something very special that none of the locals noted: it was far from everything but in turn only two steps away from the universe. Far from their families and their land the soviet scientists began to the most utopic and ambitious project in the history of humankind: explore the depths of space.

A vuoto

At a gas station surrounded by the woods, in the middle of nowhere, Fulvio and Gloria, two souls born to be together, will live the adventure of their lives.

They say that everyone has only one chance to experience something extraordinary. Well, this is their night. A night for Fulvio to overcome the emptiness that he feels inside and to win his girl back, but also the night of the most terrific sight ever seen on earth: the explosion of a gas station.
