Fondazione In Between Art Film

Fondazione In Between Art Film

Fondazione In Between Art Film was founded in Rome in October 2019 with the mission of promoting the culture of moving images and of supporting international artists, institutions and research centres that explore the dialogue between disciplines and the boundaries between film, video, performance and installation. Under the guidance of its founder and president Beatrice Bulgari, Fondazione In Between Art Film aims to contribute to the international artistic debate by furthering the role and potential of moving images in our time.

The cultural program of the Fondazione entails a wide range of activities, such as commissioning and producing new video and film works, organizing original exhibitions and timely public programmes, collaborating with leading international institutions, and producing innovative editorial projects. The Fondazione’s commitment to the culture of moving images is also reflected in its support of the film programming of MAXXI Museum in Rome, Tate Modern in London, and Lo schermo dell’arte in Florence.

In conjunction with the Biennale Arte, Venice, every two years the Fondazione commissions and produces a large-scale exhibition at the Complesso dell’Ospedaletto. Entitled Penumbra, the first exhibition was held in 2022 and featured eight video and filmic installations commissioned to Karimah Ashadu, Jonathas de Andrade, Aziz Hazara, He Xiangyu, Masbedo, James Richards, Emilija Škarnulytė, and Ana Vaz. It was accompanied by Vanishing Points, a cross-disciplinary public program that welcomed 26 international speakers from the arts, architecture, science, philosophy discursive fields. The Fondazione produced also the catalog of the exhibition, which was released by Mousse Publishing in 2023.

Unison is an additional biennial initiative by the Fondazione that has the aim to conceive, commission, and produce major video installations for the benefit of international institutions. Its first instantiation was Dreamless Night, a
solo exhibition by artist and filmmaker Ali Cherri organized in collaboration with GAMeC, Bergamo, and Frac Bretagne, Rennes. The first institutional monograph dedicated to the artist was published by Lenz Press in February 2024.

Between 2022–2023, the Fondazione collaborated with international institutions in the production and co-production of a number of works by artists and filmmakers such as Jonathas de Andrade for his show at the Pavilion of Brazil at the Biennale Arte 2022; Iván Argote for his participation to the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2022; Driant Zeneli for his participation to Manifesta 14 in Pristina; Formafantasma with Joanna Piotrowska for the studio’s show at National Museum of Norway, Oslo; Thao Nguyen Phan for her show at Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan; and Gerard Ortín Castellví for his presentation at Lo schermo dell’arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival, Florence.

Fondazione In Between Art Film began its activities with Mascarilla 19 – Codes of Domestic Violence, its first commissioning programme. The initiative commissioned and produced eight new video works to Iván Argote, Silvia Giambrone, Eva Giolo, Basir Mahmood, Masbedo, Elena Mazzi, Adrian Paci, and Janis Rafa, that dealt with the dramatic subject of violence against women, and the way in which it has been exacerbated by measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fondazione also created a permanent research platform, STILL – Studies on Moving Images (, to extend its commitment to the field of theory, by building a growing archive of texts about the works in the Fondazione’s collection and the supported artists.

The Fondazione continues and expands the work of the production company In Between Art Film, which from 2012–2019 supported video and filmic productions by international artists and directors In addition, it supported the programmes of events and institutions such as MAXXI Museum, Rome; Tate Modern, London; Manifesta 12, Palermo; miart – international fair of modern and contemporary art, Milan; Center d’Art Contemporain, Geneva; Centro Pecci, Prato; Lo schermo dell’arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival, Florence; Rencontres Internationales, Paris; GAMeC, Bergamo; Dhaka Art Summit, and LOOP Barcelona.
