In the exhibition TRIGGERING REALITY. New conditions for art and architecture in the Netherlands, proposed by the Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato until the 10th of March 2013, the reality of space is questioned, investigated, reproduced, represented and criticized by artists and architects that have long searched to redefine themselves and their role in society.

Atelier Van Lieshout, Boundary Unlimited, DUS architects, Haas & Hahn, Nicoline Van Harskamp, Anne Holtrop / Bas Princen, Wouter Klein Velderman, Krijn de Koning, NIOArchitects, ONIX: in an encounter between established identity and new generations of designers, the protagonists of the event TRIGGERING REALITY. New conditions for art and architecture in the Netherlands discuss the overlaps that exists between architectural and artistic research.

Curated by Giampiero Sanguigni with the collaboration of MarcoBrizzi, promoted by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Rome, organized by the Pecci Center and by Image, realized with the support of the Netherlands ArchitectureFund, the Mondriaan Fund and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Prato, the exhibition reflects on the possibility of shaping new and original modes of production in response to the international crisis. The result is a type of realism that suggests a tendency towards an ethical and social dimension of evolution. The strategies adapted by the architects and artists in the exhibition, imbued with a dynamic interaction and creative collaboration, are meant to question our reality, almost defying it to sustain the mercurial economic and social conditions of the last decade.
