Back from Documenta Fifteen
It was short but intense! Well, where to start? I was honored to share this experience with more than 40 artists from all over the world involved in OVERLAPPING KASSEL, an independent performance art festival curated by Qing Cai, which overlaps the official thing with an invasion of colors, moves and ideas. And that’s where…
WHY GO TO DOCUMENTA?

Writing and Recording

I am writing different texts starting from stories by elderly people of my town, and recording them together some youngster, even children from the primary school! Writing is so nice and listening to…
