Aeroponic ~ root systems nourished by air ~ Acts is the name given to the nomadic Dutch Art Institute’s final Kitchen presentations. 


39 conversations-in-a-form. 

Each act of 20 minutes offers a question as a practice of engagement.

Phanuel Antwi, Chiara Figone , Momtaza Mehri  & Ana Teixeira Pinto  

will be sharing their improvised reflections on the presentations and will, in one way or another, mesh with the questions.

All conversations anchored by Giulia Crispiani   

The AEROPONIC ACTS constitute one out of several study components (such as a written thesis, and a substantial contribution to the COOP study groups, at the heart of our program) which the students have to accomplish, in order to conclude their two year long journey with DAI. 

For the AEROPONIC ACTS 2022 DAI lands in the heart of the incredibly beautiful Valle dei Laghi in Trentino, Italy. We will  be working and presenting at Centrale Fies: a Habsburg hydroelectric power plant running as a research center for contemporary performance practices since 1999. 

Our huge gratitude goes to Barbara Boninsegna and Dino Sommadossi and their team at Centrale Fies for their invaluable support. It is their vision and stamina that brings emerging performance artists, researchers and activists together in a space of great care, commitment and encouragement. It is an honour for DAI to be welcomed here as a friend. 

Program AEROPONIC ACTS 2022:

tuttə (le) rottə 
all (the) ways: unfixed

You won’t have us, ever. If together we could be a slogan, a poem or a song, in unison we’d shout “all unfixed, all the ways”—if we could be all one body we’d never take the same route, we’ll come compact and dispersed to evade any of your jails, we’d come shabby and grandiose on our own runaway. If there’s one thing that can’t be fixed, than that’s us all—us a whole. We won’t keep quiet until we will all have the right to be all free—all unfixed.
