12 cultural association
POLISGRAMMA - Building Ground Art
Gruppo 12 Art Association
was constituted in 1986. Its activity is oriented to the problematic
nature of man/city relation, with the objective of intervening in
the urban texture of that "organism under continuous transformation" which
is the metropolis. It has created "BUILDING GROUND ART" - a term
used by the group to define its line of research - privileging the metal
fence of urban building yards as support of its visual art works.
The art event “POLISGRAMMA” has been presented in Rome at the Central
National Library (1986), at the Termini Railway Central Station (1988)
and at the Salesian Athenaeum (1991), in Vienna at the Wuk - Offener Projectraum
(1989), in Milan at the Art Civic Library - Castello Sforzesco (1991),
at the Polytechnic Architecture Faculty (1992) and at Rozzano Cascina Grande
(1993). Among the last events we mention "POLISGRAMMA - Forum Transitorium"
at the Nerva Forum excavation yard in Rome (1996) and “Post Post Scriptum”,
consisting in posting above one hundred "artists' posters" in the advertising
spaces of Rome municipality (2000) and the operation "11 Settembre,
Tazebao spontaneo", an itinerant exhibition which, started in September
2001, took place at Anagni (Sala Comunale della Ragione), Milan (Politechnic,
Faculty of Architecture), Viterbo (Accademy of Fine Arts) and was concluded
in Rome last September 2002, in collaboration with Grandi Stazioni.
