The project brings an itinerant exhibition of contemporary art with the title The End of the New that is going to be organized for a year in various Italian towns as well as in Ljubljana and Zagreb throughout the years of 2016-2017. The exhibition is organized by the cultural association Neo from Udine to celebrate the twentieth year of its founding with an exhibition both the same and different in each of its venues, as suggested by its name neo (new), used to redefine contents and aspects of the visual arts starting from 1996. A single catalogue of 600 pages will be published in the autumn 2016. Partners from Italy, Slovenia and Croatia will host 16 exhibitions with 85 artists.

“The artworks pull the spectators into a theatre to attend a tragedy, experience it from a distance and contemplate the relations, patterns and stereotypes in real life. They are meant to break the hypnosis of everyday life ruled by the function of media, the means of communication and the economic and political relations. Without a hint of superiority towards the audience these artworks could act as simple old magic for staying sane. Some would call them activist, I prefer active.”

Excerpt from the text This art is active by Vasja Nagy.
To be published in the catalogue of the exhibition La fine del Nuovo / The End of the New in autumn 2016.
