We are happy to invite you to EXILE X Summer Camp: May the bridges I burn light the way selected by Manifesta as part of this year’s 5x5x5 collateral program for Manifesta in Palermo.

The initial part of May the bridges I burn light the way is a temporary exhibition that creates face-to-face conversations between social activism, art practices and Palermo’s socio-cultural realities. Departing point is the exploitation of the self for marketing purposes or as alibi for personal intentions, as sometimes in the #metoo debate or the current rise of populism.

May the bridges I burn light the way evolves through conversations, screenings and performative interventions at Cre.Zi Plus, a daily changing group exhibition at Ballaró Market, and the distribution of the street newspaper ‘Arts of the Working Class‘, a tool of integration between the citizens of Palermo and art professionals arriving to reflect on arts and society during the opening days of Manifesta 12.

Participants: Albrecht Pischel, Angels Miralda Tena, Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou, Ayami Awazuhara & Christopher Burman, Bob Hausmann, Club Fortuna, Heiner Franzen, Dietrich Meyer, Elmar Mellert, Kazuko Miyamoto, Erik Niedling, Federico del Vecchio, Iris Touliatou, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Kinga Kielczynska, Lauryn Youden, Lorenzo Marsili, Narine Arakelyan, Nschotschi Haslinger, Martin Kohout, Patrick Fabian Panetta, Paul Sochacki, Raffaela Naldi Rossano, Sarah Lehnerer, Sara Løve Daðadóttir, Sebastian Acker, Utopian Union, Zoë Claire Miller.

May the bridges I burn light the way is curated by María Inés Plaza Lazo, in collaboration with Alina Kolar, Dalia Maini and Christian Siekmeier.

EXILE X Summer Camp was organized with the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum, Laboratory ABC Moscow, Goethe Institut Palermo, Podere Veneri Vecchio, Studio Botanic and Reflektor M.

Dressed as a market witch, I am offering my bananas, they have noses and are even more like moons. When I was a child I was scared of these superego moons in tails that keep a watch on you in the night. The sicilian fruit sellers all have such delicious goods. They come to feed me from time to time with cherrys, pizza or even ice coffee. People observe me and I observe them
