VulnerarTe APS Movement



The Association for Social Promotion (APS) “MOVIMENTO VULNERARTE” was founded within the framework of a unique and unrepeatable ARTISTIC RESIDENCY organized with the patronage of the Lazio Region, of the Metropolitan City of Rome Capitaland the Municipality of Velletri, at the former Pontifical Prison of Velletri, a space of over a thousand square meters constructed in 1861 by the Romani family.

It was established in collaboration with a group of students and technical experts in painting and sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, as well as teachers and professionals in photography, cinema, dance, and music. 

The Movement contends that contemporary art has become irrelevant due to its detachment from the truth of reality and needs a radical change to assert its rights over life.

VulnerarTe aims to break down the barriers between artwork and non-artwork, between author and participant, and between exhibition space and everyday life, creating Communicating-Artistic-Organisms that are performative, entering into site-Coexistence with artists and participants in the light of the places of performative events. It holds its autonomy over time and space in the continuous transformation of the body-beyond-matter, where the entire process of relationships that emerges can stimulate the overcoming of separations, reductions, specializations, simplifications, decontextualizations, towards a new cognitive paradigm that can reveal a shared lexicon between artists and participants. 

The Movement pursues a transdisciplinary performative practice constituted by the contamination and integration of expressive resources from painting, sculpture, dance, music, photography, cinema, theater, and publishing.

Movimento VulnerarTe APS is a nonprofit organization accredited in the National Register of the Third Sector and in the National Register of School-Work Alternation. It carries out projects for social and cultural promotion in collaboration with institutions, schools, associations, entities, communities, and more.
