Kaninchen-Haus artist-run organization is glad to announce the new international artist-in-residency programme viadellafucina16, which will give life to the 1st art collection in the world hosted by a condominium. An experiment of urban regeneration and collective transformation through the power of art and beauty.

viadellafucina16 is a new artist-in-residency programme which will take place in a condominium in the heart of the historical district of Porta Palazzo in Turin, Italy. Through an international open call, opened to multidisciplinary proposals, artists will be invited to spend residency periods in the 19th-century building, which has been abandoned in a state of decline for thirty years now. During the residency, selected artists will have the power to realize their artworks into the common spaces of the condominium, with the purpose of promoting its retraining and activating a dialogue among the different communities (and cultures) of its inhabitants. Winning projects will be selected by the tenants of the condominium (over 200 people of various nationalities, living in 53 apartments) mediated by a board of curators and insiders. Selected proposals will have to involve the community of the building and of the district in the design and realization of the artworks, to interpret their desires, to activate new and durable forms of sociality and collective care of the common spaces.
The condominium – a place where we experience the first form of democracy as well as intersection point between the private and public dominium – opens itself to the artistic practice as an element of an aesthetic, social and cultural regeneration. It will become a symbolic place where a community can represent itself, in the same way as historical nobles' palaces, thanks to the works of the artists, used to represent the prestige of noble families.

The place, always visible and open to citizenship, will define the 1st international condominium-museum experiment.
