“If we were to draw a symbol to visualize my work, it would be a set of intersecting lines: some short and some long, some crooked and curved, others straight, all captured moving unpredictably. A chaotic tangle of lines that spans publishing, research, collaborations with artists and institutions, teaching, and haphazard writing projects.”

Our mediation department works to clear objectives, with ongoing formats (for various target groups) and a lot of hands-on experience on various aspects of ART & LANGUAGE. As we would like to attract NEW PEOPLE for future projects, we have come up with three experimental fields that could connect with our current methods and enrich the strategies we deploy to attract new audiences. Every field is nevertheless also related to multisensorial and experimental forms of expression that can be found in our exhibitions, as well as in other forms of contemporary culture.

My name is Alex Giovanelli, or “Giovi” for short. I am 30 and I have been a slam poet and spoken word performer for many years.

The Museion “Art Club” will contribute to developing the contemporary cultural identity of our local area. The public programme will offer:
Events related to and enriching the exhibitions
Events with artists, workshops, town hall meetings, round table discussions, talks, parties etc.
Events in active collaboration with the Museion Private Founders to promote membership and attract investors
Events in collaboration with other cultural bodies, giving them a voice and a platform
Special attention will be devoted to young people interested in art and culture, tapping into their interests, trends and ideas, what is “in” and what is not, what might work and what could appeal to this target group, as well as how to communicate with them most effectively.

The MUSEION PRIVATE FOUNDERS Task Force
In 2006 Museion became a private foundation, with the Autonomous Province of Bolzano and the Museion Private Founders (formerly the Museion Association) as founders.

Its role will be to offer advice and support in the implementation of the various activities generated by the Forum itself.
