Hacking Monuments. Tips to make sense of them presents artists working with monuments in a performative way. This performative essence of the interventions is translated in two ways. One sees the action as a ritual where a reciprocal redefinition between the monumental object and the artist happens; a ritual of the transformation of the reality. In another one, the artist uses the monument as a body voicing issues and communities.
Hacking Monuments a project by Simona Da Pozzo is the winner of Call for Ideas – Urban Factor, promoted by Urban Center – Municipality of Milan in collaboration with Triennale Milano.
