An artist residency in an Italian tram.
"Diogene urbanbivoauc is a programme directed to international artists with the aim of experimenting a brand new method of close examination of the artist’s work and of his/her role in the society. The selected artist will be hosted in a small housing form (the Bivouac), built in an "interstitial" area of the city, that will become the place where the artist lives and works, experimenting a new way of strong interaction between the urban environment and its community. The Bivouac has been created using salvaged materials and a survival kit, reducing the needs to what is strictly necessary. It is an attitude that cannot be considered as an extreme survival experiment but rather as a wish to relate to the city, our "natural" habitat, seeking the essentiality."
