1 Associazione Culturale IMAGONIRMIA di Elena Mantoni SHORT PRESENTATION PREMIO IMAGONIRMIA [art residency + publishing project] spostamento variabile / / variable displacement edition 2019 Villaggio Artigiano Modena Ovest Associazione Imagonirmia di Elena Mantoni con le Associazioni Amigdala, Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi, viaindustriae open call to project-idea open 17 dicembre 2018 end 1 marzo 2019 From December 17 th, 2018 to March 1 st, 2019 opens the CALL for the 4th edition of Elena Mantoni's IMAGONIRMIA Award variable displacement wanted and funded by the Mantoni family in memory of their daughter Elena. With the first three editions of the Prize / 2017 / 2018 the IMAGONIRMIA AWARD has treasured the idea shared by Elena, of a "garden" as a common good, and from here has tried to intercept the interest of those artists whose work relates to minor places, interpreted as a field of civil affectivity in a constant dialogue with both rootedness and displacement. variable displacement in the Chiaravalle cycle, together with Terzo Paesaggio Association and various territorial partners (Fondazione Cariplo, Lacittàintorno, Federgat, Chiaravalle s Anguriera, Borgomondo...) has called for project-ideas capable of examining paths and environments inbetween urban and rural worlds, grafted onto the poetic, politic and practical systems of the garden in its real and symbolic, generative and regenerative impact. After completing the first cycle of Chiaravalle but with the same methodological premises that nourished it, IMAGONIRMIA AWARD moves to Modena where, together with the actions of Associazione Amigdala, Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi and the reality of OvestLab civic factory*, it interweaves its research with the artistic and cultural processes going on in the urban area of West Modena. Namely, the social-urban experience interested in the call for proposals and the IMAGONIRMIA Award is that of the (former) Villaggio Artigiano Modena Ovest, an area that questions the present in the fields and forms of living, producing and enhabiting **. * Attachment 2.

2 The 2019 edition of the Award moves its horizon from the rural landscape of Chiaravalle (MI) and the agricultural vocation of a metropolitan town, to the peri-urban landscape of a village within the city, in particular on the contemporary dynamics of the disposal of spaces / places / activities of tangible work and their conversion into intangible cultural work or new crafts and different ways of "doing". The 4th edition of the IMAGONIRMIA Award variable displacement calls for project-ideas capable of relating to processes, outcomes, paradigms, inventions, visions of the future, new urban economies, which the panorama of the disposal (land- and work-related, aggregative) of the former Villaggio Artigiano Modena Ovest, calls for, evokes, allows or denies. The winning idea-project gets: a) the sum of 2,500 (two thousand five hundred) euros net, as artistic compensation; b) the reference context in which to start the project-idea. The strategic context is given by OVESTLAB, a former repair shop now reactivated by the associations Amigdala and Archivio Cesare Leonardi, where art, craftsmanship, urban regeneration and citizen participation re-connect. More in general, the territorial context is the Villaggio artigiano Modena Ovest. (Attachments 2 and 3). c) a 5-weeks-residence, both continuative or according to a schedule to be defined based on the characteristics of the project-idea, between April and July 2019 (d) curatorial support; (e) travel expenses refund; (f) pocket money during the residence period; g) bilingual printed publication, QUADERNI DI IMAGONIRMIA / RES 2019, viaindustriae publishing; h) the Award and the outcome of the artistic residency will be advertised through a widespread communication operation.

3 Associazione Culturale IMAGONIRMIA di Elena Mantoni THE FULL CALL PREMIO IMAGONIRMIA [art residency + publishing project] spostamento variabile / / variable displacement edition 2019 Villaggio Artigiano Modena Ovest Associazione Imagonirmia di Elena Mantoni with the Associations Amigdala, Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi, viaindustriae open call for project-idea open 17 dicembre 2018 end 1 marzo 2019 Elena Elena chose art as the horizon for her thoughts and as her own life style. Once you choose art as both your horizon and form, it means to bring new questions into the world and expose yourself as part of it. It is impossible to remain neutral for those who work with and within art: the men and the women in such a field are constantly creating, thinking, staring, asking, coming up with new ideas and points of view in the world. Elena s point of view was one of someone who, through the observation of the contemporaneity and the processes of artistic production and fruition within it, detected the counterpoint between the power of the image the power of the imaginary and the deterioration of social ties, so much that if on one side everything aims to overproduction, and on the other side to fragmentation, are there Elena asks us any liberation spaces? Elena's point of view was also about questioning the grey zones of a hegemonic art system mainly through the rhetoric of its own speech, hoping for a complex art able to bring back plurality, a choir of uneven voices, each one bearing its original and civil language. Elena delved into art thinking it as a space for relationship, sharing and common emancipation. This is, together with the love that we gave and received from her as a human creature, Elena s heritage, which we draw fully from, to keep anew her search and young work, thanks to the Cultural Association IMAGONIRMIA by Elena Mantoni. IMAGONIRMIA was thus born as an act of love for Elena and her research, and as a commitment to value projects, processes, actions, orientations that consider art as capable of creating languages and poetically regenerate the world. 3

4 By inheriting Elena s cultural legacy, IMAGONIRMIA translates its intents and develops paths for the production and promotion of art, namely yet not exclusively towards the younger generations, and places among its aims the support, the promotion and the disclosure both in Italy and abroad of intellectual, cultural and artistic expressions in all its forms, including awards, scholarships and the creation of educational programs. In the spirit of such openness and taking into account the contradictions and the criticality as well as the creative and narrative potential of the contemporaneity, we identified in the multifold and complex poetics of the landscape and the garden, the milestones on which to build the IMAGONIRMIA AWARD. Nowadays more than ever, this is a theme we look at with confidence, as we rest assured that these processes related to social and economic innovation about which art can and should have its own opinion, require collective and mutual systems of values between mankind, environment and territories, and renewed «ecosofico» balance. The association / The award The Cultural Association IMAGONIRMIA by Elena Mantoni was born in 2014 by the will of Mantoni family, which after the passing of their daughter Elena has committed to manage her intellectual heritage. The Association's aim is to support the artistic thinking and the contemporary cultural and artistic production in its various fields, through educational and working opportunities for those who works in the creativity, arts and performance fields. The name of the association comes from the title of Elena s Master Degree Thesis, Imagonirmia: processes of deconstruction of the imaginary and new meanings of creative reappropriation, at NABA, MA Degree in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies in the academic year , and identifies in the word imaginary, the matrix of the projects that supports and promotes, in order to stimulate a new look on the present. Elena Mantoni s IMAGONIRMIA Cultural Association is based in Treviso and works on a local and national level, interpreting its own actions as a path of growth and research. Thus it works towards dialoguing, deepening, sharing and networking of ideas, people, places; giving economic and/or strategic and/or educational support in order to work towards a redistribution of opportunities; carrying out useful, sustainable and replicable practices, in order to develop a significant impact in the way we act, think, live, share and valorize art, culture and society. In 2016, Elena Mantoni s IMAGONIRMIA Cultural Association started the IMAGONIRMIA Award. The call / The place Premio IMAGONIRMIA 2019 / variable dispacement calls to project-ideas able to relate to processes, outcomes, paradigms, inventions, visions of the future, new urban economies, the "archives of the present" that the landscape of the disposal (territorial, working, aggregative) of the former Artisan village Modena Ovest, calls, evokes, allows or denies. After the first cycle of Chiaravalle (2016 / 2017 / 2018) and with the fixed intentions that have generated and nurtured it, the 2019 edition of the Award is located in Modena. This 4th edition of the Prize intertwines its intentions with the artistic and cultural processes underway in the urban area of Modena Ovest, in synergy with the actions of the Amigdala and Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi, and with the reality of the WestLab civic factory.

5 In particular, the social and urban experience involved in this call for proposals is that of the former villaggio artigiano Modena Ovest, an area that questions the present in the fields and forms of living, production and living. Attachment 3. FOCUS LOCATION former Artisan Village Modena Ovest In this way, the 2019 edition of the Award shifts its horizon from the rural landscape of Chiaravalle (Mi) and from the agricultural vocation of a metropolitan village to the peri-urban landscape of a working village in the city and in particular on the contemporary dynamics of decommissioning. of spaces / places / activities of the material work, on their reconversion in immaterial work, cultural, new craftsmanships and different ways of "doing". The peri-urban villaggio artigiano, once the twentieth-century production system has been abandoned, is a laboratory of thought, a pool for comparison and conception, for development and reception of the projectideas summoned here to apply. The scheduling and annual planning of OvestLab, including the newly-born "Scuola Archivio Cesare Leonardi", allow the grafting of the idea-project realized with the present Call on creative processes in progress. OvestLab arranges the PERIFERICO Festival plans events and periodical reviews works on a first ARCHIVE OF THE ORAL SOURCES of the former Villaggio Artigiano prints the magazine FIONDA, with shared editorial staff launches the training project SCUOLA ARCHIVIO CESARE LEONARDI winning project of the Bando Culturability 2018, inspired by the work of the Modena architect, a "craftsman" designer, artist and pioneering supporter of the centrality of trees in urban planning. The prize The winning project idea gets the following: > Artistic residence: a 5-week stay in Modena, between April and July A city apartment with private room, bathroom, kitchen and shared spaces is available to the winner as well as a workspace at OvestLab. The residence is intended as continuous or to be scheduled according to the characteristics of the projectidea. The residence is for one person and can occasionally be made for two. > 2,500 (two thousand five hundred) euros, net of VAT or withholding tax. The sum can be bestowed as artistic compensation, in case the idea-project is either economically self-sufficient or does not foresee production costs. In case the project idea has other co-financing channels, the amount made available by the Prize complements the production support; in the case in which the project-idea is funded only on the Prize, the feasibility will be evaluated based on the estimate of the total costs on which the Imagonirmia contribution intervenes (see paragraph of the participation form) and the possibility to activate other forms of co-financing. > Travel expenses coverage indicatively up to 200 (two hundred) euros. For financial reasons, we favour candidates resident or in transit in Italy or in Europe. > Pocket Money of 600 (six hundred) euros for food and internal mobility. In the case of more than one person, the sum will be divided equally between the members. > Curatorial support. > Paper publication Quaderni di Imagonirmia, viaindustriae publishing. For this purpose, among the meetings of the residence, there is also one with the editorial manager of viandustriae to design the dedicated QUADERNO DI IMAGONIRMIA, as a complementary place to the return of the project-idea realized with the residence. > Furthermore, the Prize, the outcome of the artistic residency and the Quaderni, are presented publicly in places and contexts following an itinerary in fieri called Imagonirmia in Tour. 5

6 Quaderno Quaderni di Imagonirmia / RES 2019 published by viaindustriae edizioni, is the publication that collects - in the format of an artist's book - the curatorial support of the project realized together with its work materials. Eligible subjects variable displacement Imagonirmia Award opens a public call to artists regardless of their nationality, without limit of artistic disciplines (visual and plastic arts, electronic arts, video, photography, film, sound, poetry, literature, performance, participatory arts, net-art, radio art and more) and no age limit as long as they are external to the established systems of production, promotion and distribution of art, for whom the opportunities provided by the call are an unique chance to strengthen an important path. The call is aimed at artists who are already sensible to what we call urban dramaturgy and want to face the opportunities and the objectives of this call and with the former Villaggio Artigiano Modena Ovest, intended as habitat of intervention and restitution. With the terms urban dramaturgy we mean those processes and works of art that, coming from different areas and languages of artistic expressions and opened to different expressive formats, act on territories and local communities in the awareness that art, creativity and culture are levers of common emancipation, engine of social cohesion, spaces of generation and regeneration of community relations. We are aware that art, working a sensible plane and dialoguing with the material and the immaterial, plays a precursor role within society as an anticipation of sense able to network and link between different disciplines: economy, philosophy, natural sciences, humanities, politic, and also ideas and practices of the common good, common resources, informal economies, biodiversity, intercultural, social rights, they look at art as the permeable and generous space that brings along a further capacity to read and live the present and think about the future. Timing The 5-weeks residency will take place between April and July The call is made public in Italian and English on December 17 th, 2018 and ends on midnight of March1 st, In the second week of March IMAGONIRMIA and its partners will communicate the winner on the same platforms.

It is made up of a multidisciplinary group of professionals in the fields of contemporary theatre, dance, music, visual arts, urban regeneration and social innovation. The aim of the association is a cultural and artistic planning that develops in close connection with the urban fabric through the construction of transversal and broad relations with institutions, associations, businesses and citizens. Through renewed attention and care Amigdala s activities, despite their nomadic and exploratory nature, are not isolated events but are rooted in the places crossed thanks to the involvement of citizens and the enhancement of their skills and stories. Amigdala organizes and curates in spring the Peripheral Festival and continuous activities throughout the year. The Periferico Festival, which has now assumed the status of a recognized and wide-ranging event, was born in 2008 with the idea of bringing a quality event in areas of Modena that are experiencing a profound social and urban transformation, where there is a strong need to develop an idea of "widespread culture" that pays attention not only to the city center but also to its suburbs. Peripheral takes place in non-theatrical places, which were from the beginning to 2017, each year different chosen for their architectural interest or for their importance to the history and contemporary relations of the city. These are new spaces, where the public can not normally access freely: factories, archives, warehouses, industrial spaces, or places little known but other key aspects, such as museums or libraries. Since May 2017, the Amigdala association has had its headquarters at the OvestLab space, where it has been directing a project for the construction of a new civic factory, in collaboration with the Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi association and other realities and citizens of the Artigiano Village in West Modena. 9

10 ARCHIVIO ARCHITETTO CESARE LEONARDI The Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi is a cultural association created with the aim of preserving, protecting and spreading the work of the architect Cesare Leonardi (born in Modena) making it accessible through the cataloguing of his materials from the archive and the private library. Starting from the promotion of the archive, the Association is committed to organizing exhibitions and seminars on architecture, the construction of the city and the landscape, design, photography and painting as fundamental fields of activity of the author. World-known magazines have dealt with Leonardi's work, especially in relation to his individual works, such as the Vignola Swimming Centre and the design projects carried out between the 1960s and the 1970s by the Leonardi - Stagi studio. With his design works from the '60s and '70s, his works are currently displayed in the permanent collections of the most important museums in the world such as the MOMA in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin. However, Leonardi's whole set of works has not had a cataloguing nor an adequate publishing, able to pay tribute to the complexity and unity of a work difficult to understand if addressed 'in part'. It is impossible to separate his design experiences from the theoretical reticular models applied to parks, landscapes and cities; or the design production in the 1960s and 1970s from the following craftman-based production - the "Solids" - furnishing elements obtained, in infinite variations, from a single material, the concrete formwork; or photography, meant as a means of investigating architecture and landscapes, from manual activities (L'architettura degli alberi, an unsurpassed tool for tree classification, and his Atlante fotografico del Duomo di Modena); o sculpture from painting, to which today he devotes most of his time. Cesare Leonardi has interpreted in a unique and singular way his role of architect in contemporary culture. His commitment in different fields is not only the result of an extraordinary ability and talent, but also the manifold expression of a single tireless design research and of a practice in continuous evolution, never intended as definitive and never fully satisfied. In this sense, his activity is a rare example of dedication to the craft: Leonardi has always worked tirelessly in his studio, favouring his work on the project rather than the publishing and publication of the same. His whole work, mostly unpublished, is contained in his archive: architectural drawings, models, design prototypes, sculptures, paintings, etc.. This is an archival and cultural heritage that needs to be protected, and possibly spread through concrete actions. OVESTLAB OvestLab is a former workshop today reactivated by the Amigdala and Archivio Cesare Leonardi associations, where art, craftsmanship, urban regeneration and citizen participation live together. OvestLab is one of the many abandoned workshops in the neighbourhood of the Villaggio Artigiano of West Modena, a place within the city born from a bold political intuition starting from the post-war social and economic tensions: the first model of Villggio Artigiano in Italy, a territory between countryside and city that held both life and work, craftmanship and business, production chain and community membership. The OvestLab project aims to be a new connection between artistic disciplines, craftmanship, urban regeneration and citizen participation. It is a multidisciplinary center in which training activities, artistic production, civic experimentation, urban transformation and space renovation can interact, bringing about new dynamics able to increase the quality of life of the territory and restart a dialogue among the several realities present in this territory on the change processes. Amigdala is committed to graft in the area continuous processes in workshop-based and experimental forms through activities of artistic production, creative residences, cultural programming, publishing initiatives, and training to encourage collective reflection on disused spaces, their role and potential new identity. The idea of re-activating a former mechanical workshop with a strong artisanal vocation is connected to the themes developed by Amigdala since its birth, as a bridge between manual work, memory and artistic experimentation. 10

The Villaggio was born in 1953 following the post-war economic crisis and its resulting massive layoffs, above all to the detriment of the most unionized workforce: the mayor Corassori and the architect Mario Pucci realized a public intervention of "ante-litteram social innovation, buying and urbanizing agricultural land and selling them at low price and often "on credit", with forms of instalments set according to a social trust agreement, to many unemployed specialist workers, giving them the opportunity to become entrepreneurs. The workshop-houses, symbol of an inseparable link between work and life, reflected the resourcefulness of the inhabitants and the community bond of the village, constituted as a real production chain. More information: 11

12 Technical file of the villaggio artigiano birth of the villaggio artigiano Modena Ovest: 1953 year of the decline: a first crisis in the '70s and the decline in the' 90s, following the international crisis caused by the Gulf War (supply of raw materials); today s functional mix: number of businesses: 164, artisan and production activities: 68.90%, commercial activities: 10.37%, activities related to the tertiary sector: 18.90%, hotels, bars, restaurants: 1.83% (data for May 2010) type of other prevalent activities (artisan-industrial and services): workshops, tire shops, coachbuilders, bicycles, plumbers (warehouse), electricians (warehouse), equipment supplies; there is also a school (elementary school and infancy), dance school, school for barmen, evangelical churches, places of worship of different religions, associations for elderly people, right-wing community center, gardens for the elderly, elderly volunteers, multisport association; type of other activities: until the end of the 90s the former church of the Villaggio, officiated by the workerpriest Beppe Manni who later renounced to his priesthood, worked as an important center of sociality, together with the collective canteen. Completely demolished in 2009, now replaced by the ambitious Chiesa di Gesù Redentore on a project by the architect Mauro Galantino. Furthermore there are: Tric e Trac - a recycling and creative reuse workshop promoted by the non-profit association Insieme in Quartiere per la Città, Aliante, a social cooperative supporting disability issues and favouring employment. OvestLab, an open space for the transformation of the western part of Modena, Archivio Architetto Cesare Leonardi, cabaret theater Atto Zero, Dancing Habanero, afternoon dance hangout; typology of green areas, trees, parks, gardens: the Villaggio is located close to the Enzo Ferrari urban park, the largest in Modena (followed by Parco Amendola). The Village is characterized by green stretches as a filter from the factories, a vegetation typical of suburbs and disused places (third landscape) affecting the streets and the courtyards of the workshops-houses, until reaching the Garden Village to the south. The roadbed of the former Bologna-Milan railway line, abandoned in 2016, still serves as a threshold between the Villaggio Artigiano and the Madonnina neighbourhood, whose housing vocation is more openly intercultural and popular. The village is characterized by an urban planning of workshops-houses with related gardens, and by sheds often without a garden. The gardens of these houses have kept the design of the gardenindìg typical of the 50s and 60s, characterized by the use of trees for shading. There are also rows of tree along private boundaries and entry areas to common spaces. roads and infrastructures, connections with the center or areas of interest: Urban bus line 4 takes you to the city center. perception of the inhabitants (insecurity, degradation, disconnection, positive aspects): from the 2010 research, the positive characteristics of this area are (for the inhabitants): - A) possibility of having other productive activities - B) to be a recognized field - C) proximity to the extra-urban transport line - D) having an important school center - E) proximity to the Ferrari Park - D) proximity to the historical center. The interventions that are considered to be priorities are (for the inhabitants): - A) increase of services and residence (from artisanal work station, to living space and services) - B) infrastructure arrangement (roads, network systems...) - C) new forms of craftsmanship - D) equipped green areas - E) renewal of the sheds. The priority problems of this area are (for the inhabitants): - A) car traffic - B) services shortage - C) degradation - D) lack of green areas - E) lack of cultural activities - F) lack of shops and nearby services. In the village there is a Coop supermarket, a Sigma supermarket and a brand new Despar supermarket (winter / spring 2018). presence of active projects (European projects, private real estate operators...): the project developed from 2009 to 2011 came very close to the implementation phase with no results. Stopped because of political negligence and changes in the management of the departments. presence of administration plans: different phases of planning (2009/2011, 2014, 2016) little or nothing has actually been realized. 12
