The exhibition tackles the relationship between art/culture and
the economy and takes place in a car showroom, underlining this
essential link. 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

This year Oriente Occidente’s contribution will revolve around
Cindia, namely China and India, the countries which have burst
onto the global scene, revolutionising economic, political and
cultural relations through their extraordinary force. 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.

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.

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

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.

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

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
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.

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.

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.

19.07. – 17.08.2008
with Giuseppe Desiato
curated by Sergio Poggianella, Micaela Sposito
opening: 18.07.2008 – h 18.00
An exponent of Body Art active in the 1950s, Desiato established
himself thanks to his original approach to the body, going
beyond the concept of performance. 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.

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.

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.

A group of young Trentino artists selected from those invited to
exhibit in pubs
curated by Francesca Pedroni, Marco Tomasini
opening: 04.10.2008 – h 11.00
Radar.01 was created in response to the desire to create a twoyearly
event in the Province offering space to young Trentino
artists, displaying their work in places frequented by the wider
public, because art has always reflected and interpreted aspects
of social life. 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.

curated by Katjuscia Tevini
23 August 2008, from 10.00 am to 22.00
Two artists, two languages, two paths, a meeting-confrontation
in a digital arena, where the subjects confront one another in
a game with aspects of self-parody, sometimes irreverently. 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.

Arte Sella è is an international contemporary art exhibition. Since
1996 the project takes place along a path through the woods
which enables visitors to observe the works of art and to enjoy
the environmental characteristics of the area. The idea is not
just to display works of art but also to show the creative process
involved in them. The works are created using natural materials
and many of them become part of the lifecycle of nature. The
association uses Malga Costa as an exhibition space.

curated by Franco Batacchi, Theo Schneider, Verena Neff
More than 40 works of Santorossi, most of them site specific, are
exhibited in the gardens and the halls of the castle. Enormous
gigantographics on the walls of the towers recall the omnipresent
mass advertising, metallic steles estrange nature, colourful
geometric compositions change the image of the horizon:
A spectacular show of an existential and artistic adventure on
the guide line of reflexion.

new traces, creating multiple representations of a continuously
changing collective identity.

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.

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.

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.

curated by Andrea Pagnes, Barbara Schweizer
ArtMobile – On-Rail was conceived as a touring exhibition project.
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.

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.

Formato Arte presents an exhibition on issues linked to the
contemporary and topical nature and significance of artistic
expression and to its development in the area. The theme of the
journey is the dominant aspect of the exhibition, understood
both in immaterial, mental and/or temporal terms, as a cultural
process, as an opportunity for new relationships, encounters and
experiences, as a journey through visual experiences and ultimately
as a reflection of life in general.

opening: 01.08.2008 – h 18.30
The event is intended to act as an important and unique opportunity
to meet and compare notes: an exchange of ideas in the field
of art between areas once making up the Central European area;
a return to one’s roots in the context of globalisation, making
it possible to discover one’s identity, despite faint tracks and
underlying diversities, to foster greater awareness of the present.
The artists involved in the exchange of ideas on issues relating to
social commitment and human values, will explore the complexity
of the dominant situation, in which the human dimension is
increasingly lost, using the language of art and various techniques
(sculpture, painting, installations, performance).

develops, expands and promotes issues linked to the environment,
wellbeing and a more “natural” quality of life. In addition
to the European Biennial of Contemporary Art Manifesta 7, the

these points of contact, projected directly onto the facades of
buildings in the town, and also involves inviting an international
artist to create a new video work around the architecture of the
city and the province.

How does one go beyond the picture postcard effect that the
alpine landscape calls to mind? How does one break down conventional
systems of representation and two-dimensional ways
of thinking and seeing? Sound and music are the means of expression
chosen by Sound Threshold to confront these questions.
Through performance, sound installations and field recordings,
Sound Threshold explores the visual, natural, literary and acoustic
landscape of Trentino in conjunction with the latest research
from the fields of ecology, technology and archaeology.

The monument to the Typical Trentino Family of 2007, the result of

Gallery of Contemporary Art in Trento, finds a place alongside
the long series of historic busts in the gardens of Piazza Dante
in Trento. The bronze sculpture was modelled on the Giuliani
family, selected on 10 June 2007 during the Family Night event at
the Teatro Sociale in Trento, following a long process of interaction
with the local community, adverts in local newspapers, the
nomination of candidates and public debates.

What is the Civic Gallery of Contemporary Art in Trento preparing
with these artists for the summer of 2008, when the whole
of Trentino – Alto Adige will be involved in the Manifesta event?
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

As takes place every year, the Civic Gallery of Contemporary Art
in Trento is dedicating an exhibition to local Trentino artists in
the foyer of the Centro Servizi Culturali Santa Chiara. This Autumn
Silvio Cattani will be the protagonist, with his large colourful
paper works. The artist is fascinated by abstract expressionism
and his works make reference to action painting, in which shape,
colour and sometimes words interact with one another. The
artist’s wide range of works also includes pieces making use of
mosaic and pottery of considerable decorative impact..

generations at local, national and international level. This takes
place using different artistic disciplines: painting, sculpture, photography,
film and installations. It involves site-specific projects

the whole Trentino area, picking up on the different geographic,
cultural, linguistic and political peculiarities.

The message she intends to convey in her project, entitled Ordet (the
word), inspired by Dreyer, is to affirm the importance of every
aspect of our existence, whether positive or negative. Evil and
sin, which contrast with man’s innate desire for happiness, are
in their turn important for an overall understanding and acceptance
of life.

to the animals populating some of the most picturesque angles
of the planet.

with Jelena Vasiljev
curated by Antonio Cossu; Testo critico di Francesca Fiorella
opening: 13.09.2008 – h 18.30
Jelena Vasiljev continues to ask herself why a community of people must irreparably
feed on its own blood. In the last few months the resurgence
of the Kosovo problem has superimposed itself over the
apparent stability in Serbia. Using the language of contemporary
art, Promart wishes to give a voice to those crying out for peace,
conveying their obstinate wish not to give in to fatalism and what
would appear to be the inevitability of their destiny and expressing
their inner need to make sensitive souls aware of the drama
that their people are going through.

The light draws lines that are impossible to grasp, just like the
frontiers between nations and cultures. 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.

opening: 15.07.2008 – h 18.00
The Trentino artist Umberto Postal presents new works realised
specially for the occasion at the Grand Hotel Trento. 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.

opening: 25.08.2008 – h 18.00
The exhibition project developed out of the need to talk about
nature, its creative power and our curious relationship with it, in
particulary ts ability to express a rational equilibrium between all
its component parts, allowing the coexistence of contradictions
and apparent discord. The exhibition looks at the subject through
the eyes of young contemporary artists covering the full spectrum
of artistic techniques: from painting to video installations, photography
and graphic design.

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.
In the Ziggurat series the artist hints at her desire to be stateless,
a citizen of the world. This theme brings the journey back full
circle, starting from remembrance of the past and concluding by
exploring the spirit of today, which expresses openness towards
a world free of limitations in terms of space and time.

curated by Gabriella Melchiori
opening: 03.08.2008 – h 17.00
Caldes Castle opens up its rooms to show works by Alice Stepanek
and Steven Maslin, two artists who present their fascinating view
of the powerful and overwhelming force of nature. They see nature
as unspoilt, wild and timeless, describing it using a personal
and contemporary approach which refers back to Romanticism.
In their paintings there is a form of ambivalent tension between
scepticism, deception and passionate devotion to the beauty and
abundance of nature.

Non C’è Traccia di Segni – 30 photographs by Pierluigi Orler
29.06. – 07.09.2008
with Pierluigi Orler
curated by Sergio Camin, Elio Vanzo
An artistic work which highlights the semantic and perceptive
significance of an area that is constantly evolving, through the
search for meaningful images regarding the different aspects
of nature-snow-technology,: the structure of the crystal and the
absence of geometry in the soft and organic shapes taken on by
the snow, the geometry behind the ski lifts, cables and nets and
the lack of geometry in the winding trails left by the skiers on
the slopes.
