A project 'Radical Colophon' by Anna Moreno

, ,


For the next SASG exhibition, Anna Moreno is presenting her new project Radical Colophon. She is creating the setting for a series of debates on aesthetics of radicalism and alternativity in the arts, related to the art market and the current global economic crisis. In collaboration with the Turkish designer Erdem Selek, she has designed a set of multi-purpose, do it yourself, low-cost furniture to accommodate the debates. The debates will be structured in 2 sessions, taking place in SASG's 3rd flor (exhibition space):

30th of June (sat) at 7PM:

The aesthetization of radicalism (from the idea to the product)

*Artists as branding for marginal suburbs. 
*To refuse or not to refuse the market. Should artists stick to some pure ideals?
*The aesthetic construct. How does art emancipate from activism and becomes a finished product?

7th of July (sat) at 7PM:

The political legitimization of radical art practices (side by side with the ones who rule)
