Culture and the economy have always had a symbiotic relationship since the era of the ancient trading routes, when great ideas travelled alongside the merchandise. Moreover mobility has an even more vital role today. The hangar houses works by internationally renowned artists, addressing the theme in order to transmit values, reinforce identity and encourage communication.

They are a source of innovation and inspiration for the West, which the Festival, always very aware of issues linked to multiculturalism, body language and contemporary terminology, could not fail to investigate. Oriente Occidente is proud to present some of the most interesting dance performances on the international scene and special projects immersed in the splendid natural setting of Arte Sella. Associazione Ordinesparso c/o Agenzia per lo Sviluppo, Tecnofin, via Zeni 8, Rovereto [email protected] www.marcodalbosco.com SCALA 1:18 Performance 06.09.2008 – h 23.00 a project by Marco Dalbosco with Oriente Occidente Festival text by Roberto Pinto Scala 1:18 is an artistic summary of a true life experience: the working environment changes its significance. The work of art alters it and becomes the expression of an interior point of view. A positive human message springs forth from the drabness of the factory system. Calycanthus Piazza Erbe 26, Rovereto T +39 0464 34095 [email protected] www.calycanthus.net opening hours: 15.30 – 18.30 or by appointment: +39 340 2580396 Le Città d’Oriente 11.09. – 24.09.2008 with Pietro Weber curated by Maria Teresa Di Marco opening: 10.09.08 – h 19.00 The work of Pietro Weber succeeds in throwing light on a complex phase in the history of human civilisations and in taking possession of the different imaginary currents pervading the cultures that gradually emerge. The masks, totems and amphorae allow the humour which has always characterised the artist to slip out, showing itself to be fundamental in transforming both the anxiety of the distant past and fear of the sacred, the shock caused by the occasional bogeyman and the impression created by the emptiness of modern life. (Christian Arnoldi) Francesca Bucciero & Filippo Andreatta with Comune di Rovereto c/o car park ex ATI, Via Cartiera 13, Rovereto [email protected] [email protected] Delirious New York – Performance 03.10. – 05.10.2008, h 21.00 e 22.00 with a group of 15 performers curated by Filippo Andreatta, Francesca Bucciero Taking Rem Koolhhas’ book Delirious New York as its starting point, the performance focuses on Manhattan, reconstructing the layout of the city blocks, around which the audience moves freely alongside the performers, following what is taking place contemporaneously, just as happens in the city. Images providing views of the Big Apple in the 1930’s are reworked, mixing various expressive genres in order to entertain the public, which involuntarily becomes a part of the performance and hence of the city.

Giuseppe Capitano 28.06. – 17.08.2008 curated by Martina Cavallarin The programme dedicated to young artists under the age of 35 will continue in 2008 with presentation of a young Italian emerging on the national and international scene, called on to produce a site-specific work for the space in the museum’s project room. It will be a work of strong poetic impact, a mixture of harmony and eroticism, alchemy and symbols Eurasia – Dissolvenze geografiche dell’arte 28.06. – 16.11.2008 with Lida Abdul, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Mark Bain, Koo Jeong-a, Nina Beier e Marie Lund, Anant Joshi, Joseph Beuys, Gulnara Kasmalieva e Muratbek Djumaliev, Terence Koh, Cristina Lucas, Ursula Biemann, Alighiero Boetti, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Stefano Cagol, Sirous Namazi, Mindaugas Lukosaitis, Timo Nasseri, Alessandro Nassiri Tabibzadeh, Mircea Cantor, Andrea Caretto e Raffaella Spagna, Beatrice Catanzaro, Heman Chong, Cao Fei, Vadim Fishkin, Christian Frosi e Riccardo Previdi, Mandla Reuter, Dan Perjovschi, Adrian Paci, Vladimir Nikoli, Elena Nemkova, Luigi Rizzo, Kirstine Roepstorff, Aidan Salakhova, Silvia Giambrone, Fernando Sánchez Castello, Bojan Sarcevic, Hans Schabus, Chiharu Shiota, Carola Spadoni, Kuang-Yu Tsui, Hema Upadhyay, Darius Ziura, Vadim Zakharov, Yangjiang Group, Haegue Yang, Jun Yang, Eva-Maria Wilde e Jenny Rosemeyer, Alban Hajdinaj curated by Achille Bonito Oliva scientific committee: Lorenzo Benedetti, Iara Boubnova, Cecilia Casorati, Hu Fang, Christiane Rekade, Julia Trolp The Eurasia exhibition presents a vision of art relevant to each individual identity, suggesting the possibility of an art form which passes smoothly between Europe and Asia – Eurasia – to which Joseph Beuys has dedicated a cycle of works. The exhibition wishes to go beyond purely performance-based art, moving towards considerations making reference to content and themes of our time and underling the value of coexistence of differences. Germania Contemporanea. Dipingere è narrare Tim Eitel, David Schnell, Matthias Weischer 28.06. – 26.10.2008 curated by Achille Bonito Oliva, Gabriella Belli MART presents contemporary German painting, with particular reference to Leipzig, a city which saw a considerable concentration of creativity at the end of the 20th century. The works of Tim Eitel, David Schnell and Matthias Weischer are representative of a type of painting referred to as the Leipzig School. Their works developed a language in which the figure takes on a primary role, in order to recount a vision of the world in which everyday reality is transformed into poetry. Yervant Gianikian, Angela Ricci Lucchi. Video works 28.06. – 31.08.2008 Known for their particular sensitivity to historical and political themes, for the past 30 years the Gianikian-Ricci Lucchi couple have focused their work on a powerful message of peace, denouncing the deep contradictions and painful wounds that wars, mass society and more recently globalisation have produced in our daily lives. In 2002 they were invited by MART to produce a trilogy of videos. La raccolta Talamoni. Protagonista dell’informale europeo 28.06. – 17.08.2008 with Afro (Afro Libio Basaldella), Franco Angeli, Karel Appel, Arman (Pierre Armand Fernandez), Alighiero Boetti, Agostino Bonalumi, Alberto Burri, Massimo Campigli , Giuseppe Capogrossi, Felice Casorati, Christo, Giorgio De Chirico, Tano Festa, Lucio Fontana, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Wilfredo Lam, Osvaldo Licini, Alberto Magnelli, Piero Manzoni, André Masson , Georges Mathieu, Sebastian Matta, Mattia Moreni, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Mimmo Rotella, Giuseppe Santomaso, Alberto Savinio, Emilio Scanavino, Mario Schifano, Graham Sutherland, Antoni Tàpies, Mark Tobey, Vedova Emilio curated by Luciano Caramel Around one hundred modern art works from the second half of the 20th century, on loan from the Talamoni collection, will be presented to the public in the galleries of the permanent collection.

Massimo Stoffella [email protected] c/o Various bakeries, Rovereto Panebrot 01.09. – 12.10.2008 with and curated by Massimo Stoffella, Enzo Frascaroli Panebrot seeks to find a simple and creative way of bringing people into contact with contemporary art. Panebrot puts images and words on the bread bags distributed daily to households. Following the sale of bread, the bags reach people’s homes, offering food for thought, no less rewarding than the content inside. The project will last about six weeks and involve the printing of 75,000 bags. Museo Civico di Rovereto Borgo S. Caterina 34, Rovereto T +39 0464 439055 [email protected] www.museocivico.rovereto.tn.it opening hours: tue – sun 9.00 – 12.00 / 15.00 – 18.00; friday and sunday also 20.00 – 22.00; closed Monday Cabinet of Curiosities 12.07. – 27.09.08 with Maria Benjamin, Sema Bekirovic, Lorenza Boisi, Henry Coombes, Andrea Dojmi, Peter Donaldson, Davide Rivalta, Christian Schwarzwald curated by Marta Casati opening: 11.07.2008 – h 19.00 The Cabinet Of Curiosities takes its inspiration from the advice given by Gabriel Kaltemarckt to Christian I of Saxony in 1587, specifying the priorities necessary for the construction of a successful kunstkammer, involving varied paintings and sculptures, with an accumulation of curious domestic or foreign objects. Artists of different origin and using different media interact within the Natural History Museum, in an area for the conservation of zoological findings and artefacts, participating in a project with a dual structure centred around anthropomorphism and zoomorphism and characterised by poetic, ironic, ritualistic and romantic fantasy.

After his success during the Neo-Avantgarde period, interest in his work waned as a result of his opposition to the artistic establishment. The fertility of his artistic output, his recourse to experimental avant-garde approaches (often anticipating his times) and the high esteem in which he is held by the artists of the Wiener Aktionismus and Fluxus are just some of the reasons underlining the international status of Desiato’s work. VHS Osvaldo Maffei [email protected] VHS Storie di terre, Croce gemmata with Serena Giordani, Osvaldo Maffei, Guido Omezzolli Storie di terre: Chiesa S.Maria Maddalena c/o Eremo m.te Rocchetta, Riva de l Garda 18.08. – 31.08.2008, h 14.00 – 18.00 opening: 17.08.2008 – h 15.00 Exhibition and performance presented in a hermitage chapel above Riva del Garda.

ALTO GARDA Angelina Pisoni e Cristiana Pivari c/o Terrace of Palazzo Giuliani, Piazza 3 Novembre, Arco [email protected] MO-I-E-TE – Mostra in esterno territoriale 12.10. – 26.10.2008 curated by and with Angelina Pisoni, Cristiana Pivari opening: 11.10.2008 – h 11.00 MO-I-E-TE is an installation representing the conditioning to which we are constantly subjected. There are five Raku pottery clothes pegs on a taught line, together with four white sheets and one red. The white sheets are attached to the line with the pegs, whereas the red sheet has flown off against the bottom wall, leaving its peg on the line. A written text, which will be read on the day of opening and then distributed to the shops in the square, completes the installation. Galleria Civica G. Segantini Via Segantini 9, Arco T +39 0464 583563 www.galleriacivica-arco.it [email protected] opening hours: 10.00 – 18.00 Profili 2 05.10. – 23.11.2008 with Eduard Habicher, Daniel Zimmermann curated by Giovanna Nicoletti opening: 04.10.2008 – h 18.00 Eduard Habicher’s interpretation of sculpture through his own work involves the union of emotion and reason. His work develops from the manipulation of matter to create signs, changing the environment by interacting with the idea of expansion and of lightness. The environment is transformed by installing the sculptures on walls or architectural structures. The Ideal Line of Arco installation by Daniel Zimmerman represents a theoretically ideal line for rock climbing in Arco. A trail defined by wooden planks, which intentionally create an alienating effect, will be fixed onto the Colodri rock face, well-known to climbers, making visible use of the climbing route on the rock.

Radar.01 takes place in two stages: the first provides for a series of appointments between April and June in a number of pubs situated in Trento, Rovereto and Riva del Garda, during which the artists are presented; in the second stage, a panel made up of critics and curators will choose the artists who are to display their works in the final show opening at the Museum in Riva del Garda from 4 October 2008 at 11.00.

In this way they come together for the first time to Palazzo Martini: Boato adopting clearly pictorial tones, with increasing use of low relief, whereas Lunardelli isolates the subject, taking it away from its natural environment.

Castel Toblino c/o Cappella S. Antonio di Padova, Loc. Castel Toblino, Calavino [email protected] opening hours: 17.00 – 21.00; closed tuesday. Beati, on the road in the room 16.07. – 03.08.2008 with Flora Graiff, Lillo Gullo curated by Luca Beatrice The works are aphorisms and photo-pastels (photographs of interiors touched up with pastels), a combination of verbal and iconic language, with which the artist Flora Graiff and poet Lillo Gullo present a sort of “on the road in the room”: an original domestic calling, bordering on the oxymoron, undermining the usual notions of pauses and travel to bring them together in a new experience, which is at the same time aesthetic and existential. It is also an opportunity to sense the fire smouldering under the surface of the home and to investigate the dimension of objects going beyond their functional role. Studio d’Arte Andromeda Via Malpaga 17, Trento T +39 0461 209227 [email protected] www.studioandromeda.net opening hours: 17.00 – 19.30 Il Padiglione immaginario della Bosnia Erzegovina L’immaginario nella vita e nelle opere degli artisti bosniaci PUNTI DI UNA (SOLA) PROSPETTIVA 12.10. – 31.10.2008 with Associazione Artisti Tac.Ka Prjiedor opening: 11.10.2008 – h 18.00 The objective of TAC.KA is to promote culture from below. Convinced that culture is one of the most effective means for reconstructing the social fabric and for seeking shared solutions for the future, TAC.KA wishes to free itself of the two main methods adopted for the promotion of culture in Bosnia. One focuses on the celebration of nationalism, religion and traditions, leading to cultural immobility, while the other proposes a stereotyped and marketable vision of Balkan art in order to gain access to the European artistic scene. TAC.KA wishes to overcome the negative effects of cultural globalisation, which levels out cultural peculiarities, concentrating on shiny metropolitan showcases and thus depriving the suburbs of stimulating contact with alternative cultures. Angelo Capasso, Amici della Galleria Civica di Trento and Galleria Numero Uno Arte Contemporanea Trento Galleria Numero Uno, via F.lli Perini 62, Trento [email protected] c/o Casa D’aste Von Morenberg, Via Malpaga 11, Trento opening hours: 09.30 – 13.00 / 14.00 – 18.00 Onda Anomala 16.07. – 10.08.2008 with H.H.

Lim, Yang Jiechang, Yan Pei-Ming, Wang Du, Xu Tan, Zheng Guogu, and Cao Fei. The exhibition considers the work of art as the key to understanding the creativity and complexity of contemporary Chinese art. Angelo Morandini, Trento c/o Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea di Trento, Via Belenzani 43, TRENTO [email protected] Matrici Affini Performance 28.09.2008 – h 10.00 – 18.00 The project presents an interactive multimedia show, generated using SVG context free language, (Scalable Vector Graphics). The image of a tree, represented by the code constructed using primitives, is made up of a myriad of small squares, with which the users can interact. Each square is indeed sensitive to the visitor’s movements. The image is generated by matrices. Anna Scalfi c/o Piazza Duomo, Trento www.annascalfi.it Celata (sotto la piazza scorre una roggia) Installation 06.07. – 17.07.2008 Events 05.07.2008 – h 21 e 17.07.2008 – all day Around 1860 there were still many places along the city’s road network where the channels of water flowing underground came to the surface. These were a precious source of running water, and the women of Trento used to kneel on the ground to wash their linen by hand using freezing cold water. In Piazza Duomo, following the exact path of the old ditch, now covered with slabs of pink stone, a row of washing machines allows us to wash our linen in public. In the place which was once a hive of activity rather than an area of transit, we can pay homage, without statues or medals, to the memory of daily toil.

It focuses on the flexible construction of works of art and on their mobility, both in terms of the issues dealt with (those of a more strictly aesthetic nature) and the places/spaces where they are displayed. In this case, the space chosen is the train carriage or container, a unique location for an artistic “environmental/ area” initiative, able to link the different official sites of Manifesta 7 using existing communication routes. ASPART – Associazione Galleristi del Trentino Studio d’Arte Raffaelli, Palazzo Wolkenstein, Via Marchetti 17, Trento T +39 0461 982595 [email protected] www.studioraffaelli.com Arte Diffusa 07.07. – 14.08.2008 Billboards in the city of Trento with Paolo Dolzan, Leonida De Filippi, Willy Verginer, Giuseppe Maraniello, Stefano Cagol curated by Mariella Rossi With Arte Diffusa, ASPART begins a process of concrete interaction between art and the urban fabric of the city. The works of art will be placed on billboards in areas of passage and transit, in order to enter the field of vision of passers by and stimulate reflection. Art thus replaces the consumerism and materialism of advertising, disseminating aesthetic and analytical sensitivity. Each artist deals with a theme: Our dreams and nightmares, Conflict close to and far from home, The individual and his body, What surrounds us and Physical and mental influence.

An exhibition? A performance? A workshop? The Civic Gallery is tight-lipped about its projects. Some say that it will be necessary to reach the mountain pastures, others that we should prepare ourselves to sing, while the most audacious suggest that we will be transformed into improvised but creative artists under the guidance of skilled professionals, overturning the daily routine we are used to. For the moment nothing is certain. We can only await 15 July, the day of the opening for the mysterious summer programme.

This was the idea behind this site-specific installation. It involves the use of light, with a beam underlining and at the same time shattering the border between the two provinces of Trento and Bolzano and the German and Italian culture, but also in a broader context all frontiers, not so much physical as psychological: the preconceptions, differences and confines so deeply impressed within individuals are revealed as being as insubstantial as light, powerful and delicate at the same time.

Influenced by the futurist Fortunato Depero, Postal also has points of contact with the exponents of Pop Art and in the early 1980s he was one of the founders of New Futurism. The collages made by Postal combine these aspects with Dadaistic and Surrealistic influences, putting together photographs and texts. Using contemporary advertising aesthetics as a starting point, the artist presents a study of the perceptive component of images which become works of art.

VAL DI NON E VAL DI SOLE Comune di Sanzeno Frazione Banco 100, Sanzeno T +39 0463 434167 c/o Palazzo de Gentili, Sanzeno, Val di Non opening hours: 10.00 – 20.00 Rosso scarlatto – Identità e Memoria 06.07. – 14.09.2008 with Mirta De Simoni Lasta curated by Fabio Bartolini opening: 05.07.2008 – h 11.00 The exhibition, dedicated to memories, is an opportunity for the artist to recall her childhood, spent in Cles in the Val di Non and at her grandparents’ hometown of Sanzeno. The paintings explore a number of traditional themes and motifs: the family home, the memory of times gone by, the relationship with her mother.
