The story and the documentation about COMP(H)OST have been entrusted to the Communication Laboratory, directed by the videomaker Irene Dionisio and the photographer Francesca Cirilli.

The project is an answer to the invitation addressed in 2017 to Italian contemporary art foundations by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism to realize projects related to the themes of cultural renewal, the outskirts, participation, and the relationship between young people and art.
How do you tell the story of a process? How do you document the performative practices, between authorship, participation, and interpretation?
