How do young European artists reflect the cultural heritage of their homeland? To what extent does the place of installation shape the perception of a work of art? And to what extent is it possible to withdraw the modifying factors that emerge in the process of transporting and reinstalling the art? Travelling exhibition project Contain[era] aims at scrutinizing the relation of art and the context of its exposure. The ambition is to materialize the mode of information sharing which we became entirely accustomed to in the post-internet era: transferring the information with no fundamental shifts of the meaning in the course of the transferring process.
Eight young artists from eight European countries will be introduced independently in a group of eight large shipping containers turned into mobile galleries. These unique exhibition spaces will be travelling on the route connecting eight partnering countries – Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
Eight shipping containers will be turned into mobile galleries, each providing a space for a multimedia exhibition of one contemporary artist from one of the participating countries. Eight exhibitions, each focused on the notion of information transfer and depiction of national cultural heritage, will travel on a circle route connecting all participating cities, presenting the artistic information unmodified, undistorted by local influences. When the circle is complete, all the containers will gather in the coordinating city, Prague, to form one large combined exhibition. […]
Italian selected artist is CARLO ZANNI, curated by Abbiatici_Levy.

Otto container saranno trasformati in gallerie mobili da 8 artisti di 8 città europee: Praga, Bratislava, Varsavia, Budapest, Roma, Zurigo, Berlino e Vienna. Dal 20 agosto viaggeranno per due mesi lungo un circuito che collega tutte le città partecipanti, fino ad arrivare il 23 ottobre a Praga, destinazione finale, che rappresenterà un momento unico di incontro, visione e discussione dei risultati del progetto, al fine di sviluppare un ulteriore container collettivo.
