This summer Kunst Meran Merano Arte is placing the theme of community at the centre of its programme.
The exhibition poses such questions as: What meaning does community have in contemporary society and what types of community exist? What possibilities open up and what risks do we run when the power of the individual joins forces with that of the many to form a community?
TOGETHER looks at the concept of community from different perspectives and presents an extensive programme with various collective actions. In the exhibition the public is repeatedly invited to leave its “comfort zone” and take an active role so as to participate in new and unusual experiences.
The exhibition will be divided into three sections:
INTERACT brings together collective actions and participatory projects to be realised on site.
INTERPLAY concerns works in which visitors can interact with one another in a playful manner.
INTERFERE refers to art that appeals to political and social commitment, to visitors’ empathy and sense of responsibility.
