“The Human Tools”

24/05/2019 - Events

On May 24, 2019 the preview of the film project by the artist Nico Angiuli – curated and promoted by Cittadellarte – is expected to be among the winners of the III edition of the Italian Council competition (2018), a competition conceived by the Contemporary Art and Architecture Directorate General and Urban Suburbs (DGAAP) of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities to promote contemporary Italian art in the world.

The objective of the work is to graft a reflection on the theme of the humanisation of “humanoid” machines by analyzing the dehumanization of the human being.

From the American Colombo Center in Medellìn, to the Bozar Museum – Center for Fine Arts in Brussels to Cittadellarte: the program of presentations of The Human Tools continues, written and directed by Nico Angiuli, with the third stage to be held in the spaces of the Foundation Pistoletto.

The presentation of the film to the public is set for 6.00 pm in the presence of the artist, while at 7.00 pm there will be an aperitif; also at other times of the opening day, it will also be possible to view The Human Tools, which will be screened at 11.00, 15.00 and 16.30.

Following the success in Colombia and Belgium, next Friday will be the premiere of the experimental film that has developed through periods of residence and workshops, involving professional and non-professional actors, interns, migrant workers and robots. In Cittadellarte, in fact, laboratories and workshops were held which saw the participation of international guests in areas such as the world of robotics and artificial intelligence, labor sociology and investigative journalism (for all the details on the meetings in question click here).

The Human Tools will remain on display in the Cittadellarte spaces even after the inauguration.
