Progetto Genesi. Arte e Diritti Umani, curated by Ilaria Bernardi and promoted by the Associazione Genesi, is a cross-disciplinary, inclusive project lasting a whole year (from September 21, 2021, to September 21, 2022) that combines exhibition and educational events with the aim of offering a permanent education on the matter of human rights.
The vast program consists of educational activities both on-site and online, addressed to a public of all ages, and a traveling exhibition of Associazione Genesi’s contemporary artworks that are included in the Collezione Genesi, and that reflect some of the most dramatic issues of our day and age.
Conceived as interdisciplinary and multimedia, because of the radical nature of its engagement, the vast scope of the horizons, and the breadth of initiatives it includes, Progetto Genesi, whose story is told in this volume, will represent a veritable unicum in the contemporary art system, and one not limited to Italy alone.
