[Needs a Facebook Account]

“Social Relay Mail” (SRM) is an app that lets you identify a stranger on Facebook and use your social network to deliver a private message. Turn your friends, your friends’ friends, and your friends’ friends’ friends into your personal courier service. Sending the message is only half the fun. In the process, discover the strength of your social network via a handy data visualization. Did your message arrive at its destination or get dropped? How many people had to be enlisted along the way? “Social Relay Mail” is part Pony Express and part Facebook hack — testing the limits of interaction in a controlled social space.

Loophole to Happiness

Opening: 24. 5. 2011 from 6 p.m.

Exhibition dates: 25. 5.  2011 – 7. 8. 2011

Curated by: Maja and Reuben Fowkes

Participating artists: Zbyn?k Baladrán, Adam Chodzko, Petra Feriancova, Siniša Labrovi?, Ciprian Muresan, Csaba Nemes, Nada Prlja, Janek Simon, Péter Szabó and Katarina Ševi?.

Loophole to Happiness sets out to locate and explore the freedom-enhancing loopholes that exist on the margins of repressive social systems from East European communism to global capitalism. Faced with the perfection of techniques of absorbing criticism and the systematic mobilisation of our creativity, sociability and sentiments for economic ends, the search is on for new forms of resistance to the endless pressure of production. The exhibition takes the inventive strategies of worker resistance under communism as the starting point for fresh attempts to imagine exceptions, find escape routes and evade the smooth surface of today’s neo-liberal capitalist order.

All I Remember by Elisabetta Benassi – Book launch – May 23, 2011 – Castello di Rivoli – Rivoli, Turin

All I Remember
by Elisabetta Benassi

May 23, 2011 – h. 7.00 pm – Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea – Piazza Mafalda di Savoia – Rivoli, Turin
Book signing – h. 7.30 pm

Conceived as an artist’s book as well as a work of art, All I remember, is a collection of 477 backs of photos retrieved from the archives of the most important daily newspapers in the world, collected and photographed by the artist over the last three years. Elisabetta Benassi has selected the most significant photos of the 20th century in a backwards route through personal and collective memories. Each page of the book corresponds to a single photo back characterized by a data sheet with the dates, the photographers’ names and an objective description of that which is represented in the image, as is usually done in image filing systems. The result is an original history of our past, made of written images and of memorable moments of the history of the 20th century.

Published by NERO

Produced by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin in collaboration with Magazzino, Rome

The book launch is in conjunction with everything is connected 2 – Allora&Calzadilla, Elisabetta Benassi, Goshka Macuga, Anna Maria Maiolino, Katerina Šedá. Curated by Beatrice Merz – May 24 – September 18, 2011 – Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea.
