No Man’s Land Foundation is a model for social and ethical change aiming to cancel the idea of property, a project repeatable in any place in the world.
No Man’s Land is a gift that art offers to all. Following Friedman’s philosophy the ones participating to the projects will create an open dialogue through artistic interactions and interventions sharing ideas, needs and thoughts.
Yona Friedman’s work and thinking is processual, working in fact on the basis of a trajectory in continuous growth and evolution, comprising the experience and contribution of every single person taking part. This empirical approach leads to a change of the individual and to an opening with a thousand variables, linked to the people, to the context, and to the culture of the place it happens to be in, to many factors that make each project part of this trajectory – unique and unrepeatable.
The project No Man’s Land by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle was commissioned by ARIA Foundation under the artistic direction of Cecilia Casorati and realized with the support and collaboration of Zerynthia Association OdV.
No Man’s Land Foundation was constituted in 2016 in Loreto Aprutino, Italy, and recognised as a legal entity in March 2017.
