We understand public space as a representation of social identities and their functions, where the abstract concepts that rule daily life are enacted.
Intermission invites its artists to engage with two diametrically opposed public and social contexts: a local government building in Germany’s capital city and the historic centre of a small Italian town.
On one side we challenge artists to intervene in a space that is defined by its functionality as a public institution, to analyse its dynamics from the inside and to create new cultural connections and definitions, establishing a dialogue with people engaged in the business of bureaucracy, an unsuspecting audience unlike the typical exhibition-visiting crowd.
