Assembling as a form and symptom in contemporary arts

International congress curated by Cristina Baldacci and Marco Bertozzi
Selection of films curated by Philippe-Alain Michaud

On Monday 1st and Tuesday, December 2nd, Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana organize, in collaboration with the Iuav University, a congress on the theme of editing in the various forms of contemporary arts.
"Editing", or "montage", is an element of the artistic practice of today's artists but, nowawdays, it is a process that can also be found in daily life and in our use of all the images spread by contemporary media. These two days of panel discussions, conferences and screenings are intended to analyze whether the contemporary use of editing has become a standardized practice or whether it is a more efficient mean to understand the world.
