Lara Favaretto’s multifaceted art practice encompasses sculpture, installation, and performative action, and is often expressed through black humour and irreverence. An example can be found in her series Momentary Monuments (2009-ongoing), which are not meant to glorify any historical event, nor to foster sentiments of national identification. Favaretto’s monuments are less ideological and more tragicomical – they simply rot, collapse and dissolve in different ways. This makes the tremendous effort to construct them a monument in itself, but to the futility of human endeavour. The implicit joke in Favaretto’s work is that even objects made of the most stable materials, meant to congeal values and ideologies forever, will eventually disappear.


Various sessions held at undisclosed bunker location. Groups of thinkers will debate one selected word per session.
