In the exhibition TRIGGERING REALITY. New conditions for art and architecture in the Netherlands (Pecci Center for Contemporary Arts, Prato, Italy. December 16 2012 - March 10, 2013) the reality of space is questioned, investigated, reproduced, represented and criticized by artists and architects that have long searched to redefine themselves and their role in society. In an encounter between established identity and new generations of designers, the protagonists of the exhibition discuss the overlaps that exists between architectural and artistic research.
