With this volume, we re-edit a polemic. As we read it, we become informed, delighted, and laughed at by the artistic “medium” itself. Dissent in the arts has served not only as a positioning strategy but also as a marker for periods and movements. The many quarrels going on today are thus a 2.0 version of a certain past. Life, like performance and history, is a process. With means and ends and, hopefully, also and always with principles. Even if you have to break the dishes to do it.

The “Series” collection discloses the intangible heritage of contemporary performing arts. “Sequence” collection is organised in thematic books from different disciplines, which offer a reflection on systems of power and protest in the present time.
