"Quando si lavora per piacere agli altri si può non raggiungere lo scopo ma le cose che si compiono per far piacere a noi stessi hanno sempre la probabilità di interessare qualcuno."
Marcel Proust

Catalogue: "Born To Be Alive - I Tell You We Must Die!"

For the 6th exhibition of "2012 Project Berlin" has been chosen the contradictory title "Born to be alive - I Tell You We Must Die!" to meditate on the rush and bustle, seemingly meaningless of life, nature has established and even the man, with all the technology will never change. 
"Born to be alive", through the evolution and work. 
"I tell you we must die," important information, obvious to everyone, but seeing people's behavior it seems that no one knows, or at least think that does not concern him personally.
We are the thus at the 6th appointment of the project started the 2nd January 2012. In these months a huge work has
been done. We are working very hard, harder than ever in this mission because we are alive and we know we must die so we want leave something good done in this spot of time between birth and death. 
Many thanks to all participating artists who help us in this huge project.   
 
"Born to be alive" is also a song by French singer Patrick Hernandez, year 1979
  
"We were born to be alive we were born to be alive
Born born to be alive (born to be alive),  yes we were born born born (born to be alive)
People ask me why I never find a place to stop and settle down down down  I never wanted all those things people need
to justifiy their life life life"

"Alabama Song" (also known as "Whisky Bar," "Moon over Alabama," or "Moon of Alabama") was originally published in Bertolt Brecht's Hauspostille, year 1927.
 
"Show me the way to the next whisky bar
Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
Show me the way to the next whisky bar
Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
For if we don't find the next whisky bar
I tell you we must die
I tell you we must die
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Alabama
We now must say say good-bye
We've lost our good old mamma
And must have whisky
Oh, you know why."

We're looking forward to meet you!
