Bey­ond the Dust — Artists’ Doc­u­ments Today” provides the pub­lic with a the­or­et­ic­al hypo­thes­is on the use and manip­u­la­tion of forms, images and texts by artists. The object­ive is to high­light the form­al implic­a­tions of these actions and their philo­soph­ic­al, polit­ic­al and social con­tent. The artists will not only reflect on the poten­tial themes raised by the vari­ous com­pon­ents of the pieces, but will offer a broad­er reflec­tion on con­tem­por­ary ways of under­stand­ing memory and the notions of authen­ti­city, fic­tion and for­gery.

Bey­ond the Dust — Artists’ Doc­u­ments Today” is a Dena Found­a­tion for Con­tem­por­ary Art pro­ject in col­lab­or­a­tion with De Vlee­shal in Mid­del­burg, the Set­tore Tempo Libero of the Muni­cip­al­ity of Mil­an and the Fond­a­tion d’entreprise Ricard in Par­is. The exhib­i­tions were cur­ated by Francesca di Nardo in col­lab­or­a­tion with Lorenzo Bene­detti.

With works by Linda Fregni Nagler, Mark Gef­fri­aud, Invernomuto, Jer­oen Koo­ij­mans, Irene Kopel­man, Ben­oît Maire, Diego Mar­con, Clé­ment Rodziel­ski, Roma Pub­lic­a­tions, Batia Suter, Richard Sympson and Raphaël Zarka.
