How artists use different languages and media, questioning their limits, addressing central themes of the contemporary world and also creating a dialogue with sciences
The performative dimension is the one in which interdisciplinary instances are best expressed. The museum space can be an essential place for this transformation, activating models of integration between production, education and new modes of presentation. Performance, thanks to its relational power, can create forms of encounter with the public that go beyond the limits of the exhibition and performance, leading museum institutions to become themselves “performative” thanks to new forms of fruition. Some international experiences in recent years demonstrate that this new vision is possible.
