Fluid Identities on show at the Bard Museum in Tunis
 Museo del Bardo

(AGI) Tunis, Oct 7 - An exhibition entitled "Fluid Identities" will be hosted at the Bardo Museum in Tunis on the occasion of the 16th Italian Language Week in the World. Through multimedia projections, video mapping and an iconic object symbolizing the meeting of different cultures, the exhibition aims at showing that design, as a project of artefacts that crowd our homes as well as a tool to act on society, contributes to the shaping of a different idea of the Mediterranean. That is, as a new place for trade and discussion. The exhibition (17 October -10 November) is curated by professors Giuseppe Lotti and Debora Giorgi of the University of Florence, who are the coordinators of the project "Tempus 3D - Design pour le Developpement Durable des productions artisanales locales en Tunisie." As the organisers themselves said, the media talks about the Mediterranean in relation to the stories of migrants and reports on uprisings and war that burn across many of the countries on the Southern Coast. Historically, this is not the Mediterranean: it has always been a place for people and cultures to meet, discuss and trade. This trade went on forever through objects that over time were at the heart of diaspora, contamination and cross-breeding. The exhibition tells the story of trade between the two sides of the Mediterranean through objects and symbols. It starts with the complexity of the asset and then moves between material and immaterial dimensions. (AGI). .
