A live exhibition about other worlds


Friday 24 February, from 7 to 11pm, Fabrica opens to the public for HERE BECOMES ELSEWHERE: 18 works – sound installations, photographs, films, sculptures, paintings, rituals and sensorial performances – created by the centre’s international team of young creatives at the end of their artistic residency. The program of the semester, dedicated to the Otherworlding theme, is curated by the Spanish director and visual artist Carlos Casas, Program Director of Fabrica.


Special guest of the evening Luca Molinari, Scientific Director of M9-Museo del ‘900, as well as architect, critic and cultural curator at an international level.

How can humans reach beyond their capacities and imagine new universes?


HERE BECOMES ELSEWHERE transforms the architecture of Tadao Ando – headquarters of Fabrica – into a stage where a myriad of imaginary worlds are created, on the borderline between the artificial and the natural, between reality and science fiction, which do not exist here or elsewhere. A fluid, open space where everything is interconnected.


The proposals of Fabrica’s young creatives are the result of their six-month experience in Otherworlding, a practice in which hybrid states of Being endlessly transform, stretch, and mutate. Thanks to it we can access visions of the universe from unlimited perspectives, free from any boundaries.


Going beyond the limits of their imagination, the artists investigated different approaches imagining new possible and impossible futures, in a shared experience of moving away from their everyday contexts. From the sensorial performance that combines essences and memories, to the audiovisual installation that traces the sleep cycles by recording the signals of our body; from the podcast that deceives Artificial Intelligence, to the monitors to hide from the surveillance systems of Venice, up to a sound journey between vocal distortions and the cathartic power of nature.
