The DNA of Arta Sperto

Arta Sperto (“artistic experience” in Esperanto) curates, produces, organises and publishes essentially multi- and transdisciplinary artistic projects. A nomadic organisation, it aims to support and showcase the cross-disciplinary approaches that many artists are developing as a matter of course, while contemporary culture is still more often than not organised by field, whether in terms of cultural policies, institutions, funding or the media. Arta Sperto seeks to blur the boundaries between artistic fields, to arouse the curiosity of audiences and to offer hybrid artistic experiences in different kinds of contexts.

Multi- and trans-disciplinarity is not an end in itself, but an open and plural means to perceive, understand and question our contemporary world. The artistic experiments featured by Arta Sperto aim to stimulate the senses, the intellect and the memory, to increase awareness of people, space and the environment, and to question cultural and societal issues, both individually and collectively.

In 2020 and 2022, Arta Sperto organised two editions of the exhibition/festival Dance First Think Later (DFTL) at Le Commun and in partner venues in Geneva. DFTL explores the meeting ground between dance, performance art and the visual arts, questioning gestures and movements, their meanings and interpretations, in several cultures and through several prisms: sensuality, social issues, politics, technology, rituals and gender.

In 2023, Arta Sperto will present KorSonoR, whose objectives are similar to those of DFTL, this time focusing on the converging fields between sound and visual arts. With these two events on the edges of visual, sound and performing arts, Arta Sperto has laid the foundations for a “trans- disciplinary art centre”, which currently has no dedicated venue and no real equivalent in Switzerland. Arta Sperto’s ambition is to develop Dance First Think Later and KorSonoR on an alternating biennial basis.
