Muttnik – Greetings from Alps

Generative identity

Starting from an archive containing mountain postcards representing the Piedmontese Alps, (http://www.cartolinedairifugi.it/category/regioni/piemonte/) the participants will start a path of analysis and considerations on the concepts of borders, migrations, freedom and integration. The Alps as a visual boundary do not allow to see the horizon and what lies beyond their ridges but, at the same time, they have been and still are a place of transition, solidarity, conflict and struggle. Each participant will have to select a postcard (or a detail of it) on which he will intervene in an analogical or digital way. Then it will be used to make a poster that will be set also to be a flyer. Workshop participants will be provided with the basic skills to design and develop a coordinated generative identity project that will produce 15 different posters, which  will be part of the same finished product.

The workshop will be in Italian.
