Bricolage – sub
The musician and filmmaker Stefano Bernardi presents his second CD of the Egokiller series. A trilogy that began in December 2003 with ‘Lieder’ and which ends in the exhibition ‘Bricolage’. In the exhibition visions, objects and texts created by a group of filmmakers, designers and artists will be reassembled as a reinterpretation of the collection of songs and instrumental pieces of his latest work.
The artistic activity of Stefano Bernardi is based on the vision and perception of music. The transformation of an acoustic phenomenon into a visual element, perceived by all the senses. In “Bricolage” the concept of “do it yourself” transforms itself into a Dadaist mode of operation that allows for the reassembly of themes and sounds that have met over the past two years, without following the instructions for use. An approach akin to the predisposition of punk.
“Do it yourself” is therefore, not a simple slogan, but a declaration of intent that distances itself from established aesthetic and commercial rules. “Bricolage” is a collection that narrates a sort of diary of the experiences lived by the musician over the last two years. Musically very varied, even if the use of a computer and samplers would normally pigeonhole it into the category of electronic music, it manages to escape this definition by assembling synthetic and acoustic elements. “
Autonomous Province Bolzano-South Tyrol, department of Italian culture
Lungomare, a cultural association founded in Bolzano in 2003, was created from the desire and necessity to open a space in which to share differences, experiences, opinions and desires, a space in which to make the link between cultural production and the political and social dimension. Lungomare undertakes projects that investigate and test possible relationships between design, architecture, urban planning, art and theory, the results of which are presented in different formats: public discussions, conferences, publications, exhibitions and interventions in public spaces. All these formats are characterised by the intention to interact with cultural and socio-political processes relating to the region in which Lungomare is located.
Currently Lungomare’s activities focus on long-term residency projects, a format whereby Lungomare invites guests to engage and interact within the context of South Tyrol. Lungomare’s activities are based on three principles: specific attention to the context in which the association’s projects are undertaken, the transdisciplinary approach that distinguishes these projects, and reflection on the role of Lungomare as a cultural institution in connection with the region in which it operates.

Lungomare is located at the edge of Bolzano, the capital of South Tyrol, and relates to the context in which it operates, attempting to highlight the dynamics of change. Large urbanized areas alternate with broad areas of intensive cultivation and yet others of picturesque landscape, all of which penetrate the centre of the city. The city is surrounded by mountains and this is one of the reasons why the tourism industry has become a driving force in this locality. The demographic structure of the city has been characterized for a long time by the coexistence of two populations, those speaking German and those speaking Italian. However, the social and demographic composition of Alto Adige Südtirol is changing. Migrants, including those from non-European countries are making their way to the area to settle, whilst others, including political refugees, are flowing through the region.
