I venerdì pomeriggio
I venerdì pomeriggio at Istituto Svizzero are dedicated to our residents. It is an opportunity for the public to learn more about the projects they are working on during this year’s residency.

The event is curated by Mathias Howald (Fellow Roma Calling 2020/2021).

How we met is an invitation to uncover intimate stories of expectation and desire: tales of lovers meeting their partners, characters meeting their fate and artists meeting their subject.
During the event, visual artist Tomaso De Luca and writer Mathias Howald invite you to discover how their respective practices and research have interacted over a common interest, the portrayal of HIV/AIDS in contemporary contexts.
Tomaso De Luca will be showing a new version of his video and sound installation A Week’s Notice and Mathias Howald will be reading extracts from his novel in progress, Cucito Per Te.
