La Rivoluzione Siamo Noi -
The Change Maker
Montreal - December 1st and 2nd @ Isitituto Italiano di Cultura
Intertwining The Revolution Is Us by Joseph Beuys with the body of work of Italian writer,
director and polemicist Pier Paolo Pasolini, this interactive piece elevates the audience as co-
author of their own experience. Divided into three parts over the course of 24 hours, the first
directly from the participants' home, the second through the urban landscape and the
third one in a theatre performed directly by the spectators, induces and provokes the audience
to become agents of change.
It is a social sculpture activation that places the different spectators at the centre of the
discourse, shifting the usual spectator experience of being a receiver of content to becoming a
generator of creative gestures.
“Provocateur—that’s it exactly. To provoke means to evoke something. By making a sculpture
with fat or a piece of clay I evoke something. I ignite a thought within me—a totally original,
totally new thought that has never yet existed in history [..] it is not history that determines me.
Economic circumstances do not determine me, I determine them. Every man is a potential
provocateur.” - Joseph Beuys
