SYSTEMA is a consortium of international and non proﬁt art initiatives taking place annually in Marseilles. It is a celebration of the many forms of independence the invited projects are bringing along presenting get together installations in historical venues of Marseilles’ center. Additionally, SYSTEMA functions as an opportunity for project spaces to test new environments and modes of public programming.
SYSTEMA internally curates their guests each year based on spontaneous or long-lasting affnities
It’s a book about a political approach to art, which would be put to the test
production experiences with artists. To this end, we decided on the subjects
of six chapters, which we proposed to share with different artists. They came to work with us, and each time we produced an exhibition in the apartment
in our rented apartment in Rome. We insist on the rental nature of this apartment
We insist on the rental nature of this apartment, because it brings with it the economic issues of living and sharing together.
The domestic space, its economy, the relationship to communal life and art’s relationship to this domestic space are at the heart of our narrative experience. Terzo Fronte sees itself as an active laboratory for exchange, connection and circulation between the French-Italian and international art scenes, exploring ecosystems of narrative and how art works.
Each of the pieces proposed for Systema transposes forms of life experienced in the Terzo Fronte’s apartment.
