The Foundations No Mans Land
No Man’s Land Foundation is a project promoting the development of the territory through contemporary art forms that can be repeated everywhere in the world. It is named after No Man’s Land, the site specific installation made in 2016 by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle which covers over two hectares of land. Every year a new permanent installation becomes part of No Man’s Land: in 2017 Pian de Pian Piano for No Man's Land Foundation by Alvin Curran, a piano playing day and night in the nut groves, in 2018 the the performance ADOZIONE DELLA PECORA LEZIONE N.1 by Gianfranco Baruchello, in 2019 Jimmie Durham’s Solid Ground and No Man’s Refuge / Il Rifugio di Tutti by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle. The most recent installed artworks are the site specific permanent installation tutti i passi che ho fatto nella mia vita mi hanno portato qui, ora by Alberto Garutti and the sound installations Gardening with John 1.1, 2006, by Alvin Curran, La Voce dei Poeti, 2006, by Donatella Spaziani.
No Man’s Land, thanks to the continued collaboration with schools, with the students, teachers and families involved, is a social container that hosts and at the same time feeds off the creativity and energy of the local community.
