EDUCATION AND FORMATION

No Man’s Land Foundation organises, patronages and hosts educational and formation projects for children, students and adults respecting Yona Friedman’s criteria of autonomy, adaptability, sustainability, self-organization and self-planning.


December 2019 – January 2020

Workshop by No Man’s Land Foundation with the students of the Department of Architecture of the University “Gabriele D’Annunzio”, Italy in collaboration with RETE 8, media parter of the event “Solid Ground” by Jimmie Durham

In occasion of the opening of Jimmie Durham‘s site-specific installation, “Solid Ground”, No Man’s Land Foundation decided to create an unusual workshop involving Rete 8 Tv Channel, media partner of the event.
Prof. Pasquale Tunzi, Associate Professor of the Department of Architecture of Università degli Studi Gabriele D’Annunzio Chieti Pescara selected a collective of students, WOO aps, to take part of the workshop. The students, familiar with the teachings of Yona Friedman, under the supervision of the journalist Jennifer Di Vincenzo, interviewed the inhabitants of four different cites with the aim to sensitise the people of the Abruzzi about the theme of museum without walls. Rete 8 created seven episodes that were broadcast on their TV channel and shared online.

Performance by Gianfranco Baruchello with the participation of the children from school district of Loreto Aprutino, Italy. 


Friday 13th July 2018 h 5 p.m. No Man’s Land – Contrada Rotacesta – Loreto Aprutino (Pescara), Italy

It is better to live 100 days as a sheep than 1 as a lion. G.B.
Through the adoption of the sheep everyone can become a shepherd of a flock spread around the world. 

Friday 13th July at 17.00 the students of the school district of Loreto Aprutino, together with their families, participated to the performance under the direction of Maestro Gianfranco Baruchello leading a symbolic flock  of sheep to pasture.
Contrary to traditional flocks with a sole shepherd, this flock defines a propriety characterised by sharing. Gianfranco Baruchello’s entire body of work is based on visionary proposals that aim to spark new economic and social dynamics.
round table dedicated to the adoption of the sheep wash held afterwards in the nearby Limonaia di Terre di Varano, with the participation of Maria Alicata, Simone Ciglia, Felice Cimatti, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, Enrico Fracassa, Massimiliano Scuderi, Carla Subrizi.

patrocinated by No Man’s Land Foundation
curated by Zerynthia

Opening May 10th 2018 – 6 PM
Ex Biblioteca Universitaria, Piazza Università 21, Sassari (IT)

It happens in Sardinia, the marvellous island.
What’s going on? The spaces of the former library of the old University of Sassari – long since empty of their books that have migrated to a new building – are filled with contemporary art. Ceramics, textiles, bronze, glass and water, small objects, neon and laser, site-specific interventions… and obviously tons of paper, tons of words and different languages. Then there’s photographers, poets and filmmakers making their contributions. An exhibition in which each of the 54 artists of the international scene(16 nations and 4 generations) is given a set of shelves, from A to X, like in any respectable library. The exhibition, curated by Zerynthia, is accompanied by a programme of interdisciplinary workshops and seminars coordinated by Decamaster / University of Sassari.

NOW CHECK-POINT / FROM LA MONTAGNE DE VENISE TO NO MAN’S LAND
by NOW – New Operation Wave
and D/A/C meeting 19 at Iuav University by RAM radioartemobile
patrocinated by No Man’s Land Foundation

Venice -> Loreto Aprutino
A journey orchestrated by NOW – New Operation Wave setting off from La Montagne de Venise in the Venice Lagoon and leading to No Man’s Land in Loreto Aprutino. Both interventions by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle, that have had the active participation of NOW, are connected with the territory through their adaptable nature. They are not defined locations, nor are they pre-established architectural models, but rather they constitute a background for the development of a new vision of art and architecture. On the boundary between the two is born the willingness to create new images, far from the idea of a building or the mere object of a work of art in a world overflowing with constructions.
The NOW Check-point is set up as an extemporaneous residency where young architects, artists and curators are involved in the creation of a choral site-specific project based on the single modules making up the Montagne. The four days include discussions and moments of experimentation via simple actions.

D/A/C Denominazione Artistica Condivisa 19
Università Iuav di Venezia
ex Cotonificio Santa Marta (Aula A2), Dorsoduro 2196 – 30123 Venezia, Italy

Participants: Renato Bocchi, Luca Bonato, Alberto Garutti, Goldshmied & Chiari, Art Lawyers (Francesco Fabris and Simone Morabito), Maurizio Mussati, Antonio Parolisi, Daniele Puppi, Giordano Riello, Dora Stiefelmeier.
moderated by Giovanna Felluga

LA MONTAGNE DE VENISE
by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle
Workshop by Yona Friedman and Jean-Baptiste Decavèle with students of Iuav University of Venice and Academy of Fine Arts Venice,
Workshops by Yona Friedman with the people of Venice

Venice – Arsenal, Punta della Dogana, San Marco Basin,
Biennale Gardens, Giudecca, Zattere, Fondamenta Nove
curated by Chiara Bertola and Giuliano Sergio
project realized in collaboration with
the Querini Stampalia Foundation, the IUAV University and Fine Arts Academy of Venice
promoted and coordinated by Zerynthia Contemporary Art Association OdV
patrocinated by No Man’s Land Foundation
Venice has always had a style of its own, a style which is unique in Europe and which has influenced the Orient. The Mountain is part of an attempt to create a style which is lacking in present day architecture. It is part of a small series which has already been realized (in other parts of the world). I do not know where this will lead but it is worth trying. I believe it could be an opening. Y.F
La Montagne de Venise is an architectural action realized in one of the Arsenal’s hangars, made from a mobile, transformable chestnut wood structure seven metres in height mounted upon a floating jetty reaching from the 28th to the 30th of September various points of the lagoon: Arsenale, Giardini della Biennale, Punta della Dogana, Bacino di San Marco, Zattere, Giudecca, Fondamenta Nove.
At each venue the floating Montagne was welcomed by performances with students, passerby, children coordinated by NOW – New Operation Wave.
The project was presented by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle at the auditorium of the Querini Stampalia Foundation on September 27th 2016.
The language chosen by Friedman for this project is that of fairy tales which gleans from popular imagination; Venice, with its theatrical, playful and carnivalesque tradition, is in perfect harmony with the project.

No Man’s Land by Yona Friedman  and  Jean-Baptiste Decavèle
Contrada Rotacesta – Loreto Aprutino (Pescara), Italy
 
A NOW meeting in No Man’s Land as an anticipation of the workshop to be held in Venice born from this idea: No Man’s Land is open to everybody but you have to play!
The aim is to discuss the concept of border as a limit of physical spaces and disciplinary fields. NOW intends to blur the boundaries between art, architecture and cross the limits that confine all of us in a specific field. This encounter is held in No Man’s Land, a private territory donated to the community, without borders, open to everyone.
NOW members and participants explored the territory through mapping games and the bravest ones spent the night inside the intervention in No Man’s Land, precisely inside the stone tapestry by Friedman/Decavèle. Each participant had a limited edition publication by NOW with the rules for the games. The purpose is to create a fertile ground for planting and growing new ideas and collaborations. A territory without boundaries is a representative place for an artistic nomad generation. 
A virtual round table, broadcasted on RAM live (www.radioartemobile.it) and part of a special episode of NOW Radio, took place at Spazio Di Paolo creating a dialogue between NOW / institutions part of the project “La Montagne de Venise” by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle /entrepreneurs supporting No Man’s Land / artists who work with the concept of limit / academics from art and architecture institutions / Zerynthia Association for Contemporary Art OdV
