The project is led by fàlo, an interior decorating collective based out of London and led by a group of architects, which will take over Bari’s former Post Office, designed for the fascist government in power by Roberto Narducci in 1931.
The “performance” on November 27 draws from community development techniques and methods, in particular those of Douglas Atkin, the Airbnb Global Head of Community, and consists of a meeting with local airbnb hosts. The documentation of the event will be exhibited along with a new text at 63rd-77th STEPS, the Art Project Staircase run by Fabio Santacroce.
Following the performance is the two+ week online video exhibition, titled Do More of What They Love and featuring Maja Cule with ‘Facing the Same Direction‘, Juliette Bonneviot with ‘Minimal Jeune Fille‘, Rosa Aiello with ‘First Person Leaky‘, and Keren Cytter with ‘Der Spiegel‘.
