RAUM: autumn 2015 – winter 2016, Bologna

Raum, Xing’s headquarters in Bologna, is a space dedicated to the support of contemporary cultural production. Its challenge is primarily aimed at italian artists who meet and collaborate, often for the first time, solicited by unusual production occasions; while international artists are invited to present works from the panorama of contemporary creation, introducing materials and experiences that facilitate the circulation of ideas. This autumn-winter Raum has organised a series of actions: special projects that investigate the conventions and habits of the arts. Raum has a sort of cultural accupuncture in mind, a work on interstitial tissues, rather than weightlifting. Raumn will thus focus upon studio time, becoming a space – and, indeed, a time – for research, that is not necessarily exposed for public consumption. It will be a place for the representation of knowledge and its mutability.

Participants include: two anonymous artists, Gianfranco Brebbia, Isabella Mongelli and Tim Spooner, Markus Öhrn and Azdora, Cesare Pietroiusti and students of Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna.
