Democracy is a form of government that is defined as it goes; it is an imperfect and fallible system, founded on the individual and on the individual’s subjective action. Democratic Acts weds “acts” and “democracy”: acts understood as subjective actions open to discussion, and democracy viewed as a system of reference through which the action of its subjects is redefined and modified. A democratic act springs from a strong personal desire; it accepts risk, conflict, or dissent and it aims at the realization or explication of what is latent. A democracy must ensure the originality of each of its members―his or her capacity to speak out, to spark renewal and to reject passive acceptance of the status quo.

The project presents artistic experiments, inquiries and practices dealing with the relation between Art & Democracy, with the intent of facilitating the redefinition of the system in which they act and reclaiming the role and the responsibility of individuals as essential, active players in democracy.
