The project began with an “errorist” event in the center of Bologna. Officials of the European Central Bank (fake) gave back five-euro banknotes (real) to passersby. It concluded with a mise en scene of a permanent assembly in Piazza Verdi, historic and symbolic setting of the student protests in the 1970s, and today at the center of the debate about the degradation of the city’s university area.
This is the project realized by the Etcetera collective for the second edition of the International Award for Participatory Art. It was developed in four “chapters” during spring and summer 2013, starting from the economic crisis, and arriving at the crisis in models of participation and representation.
