Viadellafucina16 condominio-museoVia S. Giovanni Battista la Salle, 16, 10152 Torino TO, Italy
Viadellafucina16 is an international artist-in-residency programme launched by Kaninchen-Haus in 2016, with the aim of giving life to the world’s first experiment of a Condominium-Museum.
The residency occurs within a majestic 19th-century building, that we find today in a state of decline, in the heart of the Turin’s district Porta Palazzo, in the city centre, where the biggest open market in Europe rises.
Through an international open call, whose 1st edition received 442 candidacies, artists have been invited to realize their artwork in the common areas of the building, with the purpose of promoting its regeneration and activating a dialogue among the tenants.
The winning projects have been selected by the inhabitants themselves (about 200 of various nationalities, living in 53 apartments) with the support of our scientific committee of curators and insiders, on the basis of the artists’ ability to engage the community in the design and production of the artworks, to interpret the community’s desires and to activate new forms of sociality through a process of co-creation and collective care.
