A film by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi
Italy, 2003, DVCAM, 57', sound, color

The film The Invisible Object. Art in Social Change is the first in the
cycle of documentaries conceived as an integral part of the project
Shot in France, Holland and Italy, the film gathers together numerous
interviews with artists, curators, representatives of institutions,
inhabitants and members of local associations; a detailed picture of the
regions, cities and quarters involved in urban regeneration programmes and
public art projects; and artistic interventions, workshops and projects
either completed or in progress that illustrate the new practices of
intervention on the territory.
Among the projects covered are: I & Us by Campement Urbain and Nouveaux
Commanditaires (France); SAIT-Social Actors in Transformation and AVL-Ville
by Atelier van Lieshout (Holland); and Immaginare Corviale by ON/Stalker
The itinerary of the second documentary will set out from Berlin and end in
Istanbul, passing through Eastern Europe, along the route of a future
enlargement of the borders of the European Union.
