5+5 saranno sempre le tue mani.
Il delitto perfetto è vivere
occultando le prove.

Il suo no tuo nò nella stanza.
La predi letta, la figlia a lungo at(te) sa.
Quel giorno però era stato il suono ad entrare nella stanza.
La vide di spalle seduta al piano che intonava una triste melodia.
Era la prima volta che la vedeva suonare.

Senza neppure voltarsi la richiamò a sé.
Riprese con rapidi solfeggi scuotendo l’aria con le mani, senza tempo, mentre la voce accompagnava la musica con la narrazione della sua vita.
Un sentimento profondo e misterioso intrecciava le nostre esistenze,

l’ una ancora inconsapevole del futuro che l’attendeva e l’avrebbe raggiunta, l’altra rassegnata per un passato tiranno che le aveva strappato l’infanzia e le sue a(spira)zioni.
Fu così che, chiusi gli occhi, mi lasciai trasportare dalle note, nel sogno di un’esistenza incompiuta.
L’anima sa.
Era Il suo, un istinto infallibile per la cura e la conoscenza dell’animo umano…
Si fece a un tratto lontana, irraggiungibile. Poi, con voce calma, esclamò:
“Forse nella prossima vita studierò Freud.”

“Financial Consequences – International MultiMedia Poetry Festival” challenges the perceptions of the economic crises and providing a new point of view via a wide variety of mediums. For the last 10 years, we see entrepreneurs, economists, bankers, technocrats and politicians to dominate the public opinion- now is the time for poets to explain to all of them the social impact of their decisions and their politics. The social awareness and sensitivity of poets – in collaboration with video artists and musicians- invited from countries crushed by the economic crises offer us the best possible view to invisible sites of social life, offer us the opportunity to understand and realize the Financial Consequences of economic crises in the everyday life of all of us and especially of people in suffer.
The Institute for Experimental Arts was founded in 2008 in Athens- Greece as a non-profit platform of creative expression and research in the fields of theater, performance art, digital media, installation, poetry and art theory. The Institute is committed to exist as an open meeting point for poets-writers, directors, actors, theater engineers/ technicians, performance artists, photographers, video artists and the writers who develop new analytical tools on contemporary art, media & communication

Saturday 9 February 2019 at 16:00
Part A: Introductory Lectures – Duration 30 minutes
Lecture by the world-known professor of Anthropology David Graeber (London School of Economics) “How social and economic structure influences the Art World”
Influential anthropologist David Graeber, known for his 2011 volume Debt: The First 5000 Years speaks about the correlation between the cultural sphere and society. The intellectuals and the artists create an imaginary way to criticize the economic system in any era. Art can overcome hegemonic frameworks and acknowledge other possible worlds, offer us the opportunity to understand better the marginalized social entities. Social exclusion is the process in which individuals or people are systematically blocked from (or denied full access to) various rights, opportunities and resources that are normally available to members of a different group, and which are fundamental to social integration and observance of human rights within that particular group (e.g., housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation, and due process). As the economic crises go deeper in time more people face the effects of exclusion. Art and social sciences can give voice to the voiceless. Especially young social aware poets can give us a clear view of the real social effect of the financial consequences.
“Poetry and Revolt- Political Art in the 21st Century” Lecture by Tasos Sagris- theatre director, poet, activist. Art director of the Financial Consequences festival

Part C Financial Consequences
Multimedia LIVE Performances

Duration 4 1/2 hours – starts at 18.30

Poets, musicians and visual artists create a vibrant atmosphere with multimedia poetry readings and live poetry performances. Spoken Poetry has been growing over the last years. A collection of contemporary poets from countries faced to financial crisis begin to build up an important social role in our times. Poetry communities preserve the possibility of mutual understanding by reading and performing it.
Poetry responses to economical crisis, social exclusion and conflict, the challenges society faces. Poetry has a special role under difficult financial and political conditions. As Wallace Stevens believed: “Poets help the political beings to live their lives, not by telling them what to think. They do so by creating spaces where one individual imagination can activate another and those imaginations can be together. Poems are imaginative structures built out of words, one that any reader or listener can enter. Live Poetry Performances are places of freedom, enlivenment, and true communion.”

La mia azione è l’azione di nessuno


“Perchè pensare il movimento non è diventare movimento.”

(The company, R. Altman)

Ho pensato molto più spesso a quello che non é che a quello che é la mia arte. la mia arte in assoluto non é:


Nella mia città, nel web, in Italia, nei paesi occidentali e spero non in qualche altro angolo sperduto sulla terra… Prolificano artisti conceptual – concept – conc’é (!)

Io no. piuttosto rein(vento) me stessa.

Questo proliferare di conceptuals mi ha fatto seriamente riflettere sull’intenzione (prima) e la funzione (poi) che stanno dietro al mio fare artistico ma anche più in generale, al concepimento di ogni atto quotidiano.
Creare, per me, è un meccanismo utile e funzionale declinabile a moltissimi aspetti della vita umana, un bisogno istintivo di ricerca e scoperta dell’irrazionale che ci circonda e che ci compenetra nella più assoluta e dissoluta anarchia d’intenti, senza la pretesa di farsi speculazione, ergo pensiero.

Preferisco definirmi una body functional artist o human functional artist e dedicarmi allo studio del funzionamento umano – dell’essere umano nel significato biologico del termine – e delle sue funzioni vitali riferite al presente; essere presente a me stessa e presente al tempo attraverso l’azione del corpo, concentrata sulle sue sensazioni, svincolata dal pensiero e dalla sua azione disgregante.

A tal proposito mi é piaciuta molto la schematizzazione della differenza tra
mente funzionale e mente concettuale che riporto di seguito:

– mente concettuale: abitudine al giudizio e al controllo, dialogo interno.

– mente funzionale: silenzio interiore, stato di flusso, stato di coerenza cardiaco, stato animico, stato d’amore, stato ludico, azione automatica, assenza di sforzo, presenza mentale, qui ed ora, coinvolgimento totale.

(La coscienza parla, Ramesh S. Balseker)

Vorrei che la mia arte fosse suppellettile da arredamento.

Pura forma.

Semplice esistenza.

Creare come Necessità di vita.

Nutrimento dello spirito.

Appagamento per il corpo.

Visione amplificata.

Funzione vitale
