Lu Cafausu is a mysterious small building, an architectural remnant that the artists have elected as a source of metaphors and narratives. It is 'an imaginary place that really exists' around which the presence of death is floating. Any day, the small building can in fact be demolished to accommodate more parking space for cars, or can also fall apart due to its precariousness. It could also be turned and frozen into a monument. Because of this feeling of the presence of death, Lu Cafausu is an ideal place for a new celebration. 'La Festa dei Vivi' is for those who, in order to give sense to life, reflect upon death; their own, 'first and foremost.'

*AND AND AND is an artist run initiative, which will use the time between now and dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012 to consider with individuals and groups across the world the role art and culture can play today and the constituent publics or communities, which could be addressed. The series of interventions, situations, and occurrences entitled AND AND AND are part of dOCUMENTA (13) and will compose a map of emergent positions, concerns, and possible points of solidarity.
AND AND AND

In this case I have decided to show a collection of images of bars somewhat cut off from time. Some are too big, others a big chaotic, undisciplined, certainly anti-functional, in which objects or persons seem to magnetically arrange themselves, according to mysterious designs. Barbarisms, we might call them.
at Club21, London
It was the widely perceived lack of a “scene” today that prompted the curator Oxana Maleeva (Art Apart), in partnership with gallerist Natasha Akhmerova (Barbarian Art Gallery), to conceive Club 21 – Remaking the Scene. Sound and performance will be developed by one of the protagonists of the New York underground scene in the 1980s, the internationally renowned musician and sound artist Steve Piccolo, co-founder of the Lounge Lizards. The project has been organised with Mudam Museum of Luxembourg and Victoria – the Art of Being Contemporary foundation (Moscow).
At One Marylebone the scene will be set as soon as visitors walk through the door into what looks like a vintage nightclub lobby, reminiscent of art scenes such as New York in the 1980s, Perestroika-era Russia, and the English and California punk scenes and artist-run occupied spaces in Milan. The main hall will be the backdrop for sound events and performances, as well as large sculptures and installations. Sound art curator Steve Piccolo has invited a number of outstanding composers and sound experimenters to contribute recorded pieces that play with the idea of the “conversation”.
The artists of A Constructed World will invite people to contribute to a paper room with drawings and texts; Evgeny Yufit will present performances based on those of the experimental NecroRealists during the Perestroika era in St Petersburg; the Italo-Russian artist Marc Vincent Kalinka will pose as a security guard outside One Marylebone in a live performance of his original video Still (Nothing).
The list of participating artists includes Jota Castro, Roberto Cuoghi, Bert Theis, Adrian Paci, Steve Piccolo, Kawarga Dmitriy, A Constructed World, Ramuntcho Matta, James Nares, Amos Poe, Alexander Ponomarev, Marc Vincent Kalinka, Stephen Torton, Piotr Belyi, Nathalie du Pasquier, Mariette Schiltz, Evgeny Yufit, Giancarlo Norese, Edo Bertoglio, Stina Fisch and Steve C. Harvey, Filip Markiewicz, Luca Pancrazzi, and Klara Palotai.
