The French anthropologist Marc Augé, member of the Jury of Twocalls, came to visit the Vajont area, to explore the Contest‘s project sites and to learn more about Dolomiti Contemporanee‘s activities.
He brought his reflections about the Vajont Tragedy and the meaning of a contemporary art Contest here nowadays.
As he said: A thing is to commemorate, another is to remember, still another is to create once again. What is art if not a symbol of life?

Here a videointerview with english subitles.
