Pedro Costa’s film is a confluence of documentary and fiction. His protagonist, Vanda, is a non-professional actor who performs in scenes set in her own neighbourhood in the Lisbon slums. Vanda is either selling vegetables in the street or taking drugs in the one-room hovel that she shares with her sister, as the neighbourhood is literally torn down around them by the local authorities. In this framing, Costa offers a rich vision of place and of human defiance in the face of urban planning from above.
The second part of exhibition illustrates Alberto Giacometti’s relations with Post-Cubist artists and the Surrealist movement between 1922 and 1935, one of the important sculptures series he created during his first years in Paris, and the critical role he played in the art scene of the period.
In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
