Encounters Beyond History
Monument-Document
From Il Grande Cretto by Alberto Burri, in Gibellina Vecchia


Museums must be set on fire!
So much violence performed in museums, so many objects that ask not to be there, torn from the darkness and returned to light, to a new condition, to a context other. Les statues meurent aussi... However, I still believe in museums as places of civic exercise because, in their implausibility, they empower visitors, they enable them with the capacity to choose, to refuse, to criticise, to constitute themselves as human beings in the sometimes incongruent, sometimes exuberant, flow of politics and the poetics of our existence.

Free registration, subject to the room’s maximum capacity. Registration may be made in person at the José de Guimarães International Centre for the Arts or through the form available online.
