ATLAS art - media - urban dimension

ATLAS 01 is an event organized by MAO Media & Arts Office ONLUS in collaboration with Quartiere Intelligentee with the special participation of New Technologies for Art (NTA) Course Academy of Fine Arts of Naples

Come si partecipa ads ATLAS
The presentation and discussion workshop is designed to blur the line between audience and presenting actors, between listening and participation. Four levels of participation overlap and intersect with each other in the event space:
I) the visions, experiences and practices of the artists, thinkers, theorists and activists invited to speak are the starting point for developing the different conceptual and discussion trajectories that will animate the days;
II) the "provocateurs," cultural actors invited because of their familiarity with the topics discussed, are called upon to continually overturn points of view and fuel dialogue on the content and ideas emerging in the various panels;
III) the audience (participant) is invited to take part in the discussion and generate "disturbances" and stimuli that can evolve the ATLAS dialogues in unexpected ways;
IV) finally, the facilitators/agitators, in the figure of the four project curators, have the task of keeping the discussion alive, preventing the sudden emergence of unexpected trajectories from causing the specificity of individual focuses to be lost sight of, and fostering broader audience involvement.
