Date: Thursday, 9 March 2023, 6.30pm
Place: ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory, Christinenstr. 18–19, 10119 Berlin
Format: The event will take place in English. Admittance is free.

The lecture is part of Zaganelli's research project entitled THE ARTIST FOR THE COLLECTIVITY realised in partnership with cultural institutions and universities from Italy, Germany, Japan and Thailand. Why are collaborations with territories, companies, schools and institutions, today more than ever, fundamental to define new paradigms of exchange and sharing, between art, society and active citizenship? Is it possible to define a social role for the artist? Is it conceivable to analyse their capacity to generate added value? Is it relevant to quantify the role of the artist in catalysing resources and interests from outside the art sector, thus helping the community to work for a common interest?

The event is followed by a reception.

Giacomo Zaganelli is an artist, curator and activator of projects aimed at the community, conviviality and sharing. Through his practice he investigates the social and public dimension of the concept of space, understood as the result of territory, environment and landscape. In the last fifteen years he has promoted and created numerous projects and activities in Italy, Europe and Asia.

The project is supported by the Italian Council (10th edition, 2021), programme to promote Italian contemporary art in the world by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
