ATPdiary invited some curators to point out three international artworks that summarize – or are meaningful of – three historical periods. 

One from the past, even very distant.

One from the present, focusing on the contemporary moment.

One from the future, with a strong perspective, in a nutshell, towards what’s next.

Ludovica Carbotta, Apart we are together, 2015 ongoing –  Disegni e fotografie preparatorie di un progetto in corso.

Apart we are together si concentra su momenti di isolamento individuale, in condizioni di vita comunitaria e lavoro.

La progettazione di oggetti facilmente adottabili per vivere momenti di isolamento, in particolare in questo primo esperimento, è stata pensata su tre diverse condizioni e situazioni: un ambiente di lavoro, un gruppo familiare e un gruppo in viaggio.
