MIND M(U)P – RUFA story of Garbatella

On February 27th at 6.00 p.m. the exhibition GARBATELLA MIND M(U)P – Choral photo installation of RUFA students of the Bachelor Photography course , from the idea of the collettivoFareCose, will be inaugurated.

The exhibition will be held at the Ater space in Via Percoto 6 and will be open until March 6th from 3 to 7 pm. Finissage March 5th at 6.00 p.m.

The students Sonia Bouslama, Cristina Cannistraci, Daniele Cimaglia, Niccolò Consolo, Cristina De Rosa, Claudia Frisardi, Ida Indaco, Davide Magdalone, Noemi Montaleone, Asia Pierotti, Riccardo Pisetti, Chiara Rossi, Nicola Russo, Fabiana Scattarreggia, coordinated by the students of the 3rd year Amparo Lavezzo and Rachele Alessandrelli, will create a participatory photo installation, which aims to provide a mental representation of the map of the Garbatella district. The work is based on the union of human and subjective experiences, not focusing on geographical abstraction with squares and borders, with the aim of returning the chaotic daily interaction.

GARBATELLA MIND M(U)P presents itself as a choral installation that involves the gazes of over 15 students who in recent weeks have explored the physiognomy of the neighborhood. A work that goes beyond not only the eternity of the image of the historic neighborhood of Rome, but also the traditional paradigm of the photographic exhibition and the concept of authorship: all the images that will represent the work will be anonymous and visitors to the exhibition will be able to intervene on the work itself for the entire duration of the exhibition. Each visitor will be able to add photographs, cuttings and drawings to the installation thanks to the instrumentation made available by the artists.

The project is therefore the result of an interactive accumulation of human experiences, of a chaotic and methodologically unfinished overlap, which aims to represent an imaginary “collective mind” rather than to tell the alleged truth of Garbatella.
