CAM MUSEUM FACTORY INTRODUCING “SURVIVAL
ARTISTS-LED FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART ON CONTEMPORARY ART SURVIVAL IN TODAY SOCIETY

This Festival common thread is about contemporary art survival in today society and the program consists in a big exhibition, performances, live music, meetings and workshops. An extraordinary visual and media event launched by CAM museum involving more than 300 international artists exhibiting inside a 1.500 sm large area, to provide answers to such questions: What’s contemporary art today? Where is it going? Has the artist any role in contemporary society yet? Is he free yet? Is there any difference between artistic common thought and aesthetics as imposed by worldwide speculative art market? Has culture become a machine producing art as consumption commodity or is the idea of art as free, able to raise our spirit, existing yet? Can art, the way we know it, survive in the society of capitalist commodification? Is Ikea going to be the future for those artists out of big galleries commercialization? How about museums and art galleries, are they becoming Happy Hour lounges in order to get audience?

NetCAM is the network, nothing better for a cultural reality that create contacts and external relations, but this time the Casoria museum does according to his style is multiplying the art and its presentations around the world collaborating with many museums, galleries and public or private cultural institutions.

NetCAM is an idea of management, a winning idea in the international art scene, is a collection that speaks of a history of hundreds of artists from around the world, to offer educational attention and cultural, of new initiatives to meet and exchange.

“NetCAM project is a powerful international network that connects art spaces, artists and cultural institutions that can begin to count in the world of art and say their word even in the artistic choices of the great public and private international cultural institutions”.

Now the CAM provides the ability, for low-cost but with high artistic and cultural impact, to be simultaneously in several places with the NetCAM System.

The Casoria museum proposes the creation of new connections of contemporary art CAM that will network with each other and will be managed from its headquarters in Casoria. A part of the permanent collection will be set up in various international cities as an example of curatorial choice for the presentation of the project NetCAM, but will not be a series of exhibitions but just a presentation of the working spirit of this museum that is creating new connections.

In this context arises the first event of this system entitled BalCAM has been realized in the town of Gostivar in Macedonia at 4th February 2015 in the Gallery of Cultural Center, on February 6, 2015 the exhibition has moved to the Macedonian capital in the spaces of Culture Informative Center in Skopje, at 06 March 2015 the event has been realized in the town Eregli in Turkey with the project TürCAM in the gallery of the Ataturk Culturat Center and will continue in Croatia (Reijka) in 15 April 2015, in Montenegro in the town of Ulcinj in June, in Serbia (Novi Sad), Albania, Bosnia and then in all the main cities in the Balkan Region.

NetCAM continue to expand at the same time in Czech Republic in Praha with the project CzeCAM in September, in Wales (UK) with the project WalCAM in the town of Harlech and in Poland with the project PolCAM in the city of Lodze.

ErotiCAM

niel
in collaborazione con Antonio Manfredi
28 Novembre 2013 > 15 gennaio 2014
La mostra è sponsorizzata da Griec.a.m. Ascensori Casoria

Prorogata fino al 27 febbraio 2014

Il progetto, censurato dal Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici e accolto da Antonio Manfredi al CAM, riprende gli affreschi scandalosi degli scavi di Pompei e di Ercolano per trasformarli in erotiche e lussuriose imprese contemporanee. I protagonisti sono personaggi noti come Hermann Nitsch, Antonio Manfredi e Carl Djerassi, padre della pillola anticoncezionale.

Il 28 Novembre 2013 alle ore 18.30 il CAM | Casoria Contemporary Art Museum presenta “ErotiCAM Gabinetto segreto II”. Il progetto, censurato dal Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici e poi accolto da Antonio Manfredi al CAM, è nato da un’idea del trio artistico viennese TEAMniel, e parte dagli affreschi erotici degli scavi di Pompei e di Ercolano per attualizzarne il contenuto. Attraverso la sostituzione fotografica dei protagonisti, nel “Gabinetto segreto II” i reperti storici si trasformano in 25 scene hard. Gli interpreti sono personaggi noti tra i quali Hermann Nitsch, Antonio Manfredi e Carl Djerassi, padre della pillola anticoncezionale, che per l’occasione hanno messo a “nudo” la loro versione artistica.  Il progetto si pone la finalità di documentare e analizzare la reazione del pubblico di fronte al cambiamento di un’opera d’arte, da oggetto culturale a sessuale, un effetto valutabile attraverso il tempo di permanenza davanti al montaggio fotografico e al video e attraverso l’interattività del pubblico invitato a lasciare un commento scritto sulle stesse opere. La visione dei nuovi concupiscenti interpreti delle immagini che ornavano le antiche terme romane, le ville e i lupanari (bordelli romani), sconcerta il pubblico e pone delle domande sulla visione della sessualità, sull’autocoscienza e sulla libertà artistica. Il titolo della mostra ricalca il nome del luogo in cui sono conservati gli originali reperti “scandalosi”, appunto il “Gabinetto segreto” all’interno del Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli. La collezione “compromettente” è stata conservata gelosamente dal tempo dei Borbone, censurata innumerevoli volte e nascosta al pubblico sguardo fino alla fine del 20° secolo, elevandosi nel tempo anche ad emblema delle libertà di espressione. La Soprintendenza ne ha ora “censurato” (sulla scia del divieto che storicamente ha accompagnato l’ingresso al Gabinetto segreto) la sua nuova veste artistica contemporanea rifiutando “…l’autorizzazione a tale uso delle immagini per motivi di opportunità” e la mostra all’interno del museo Nazionale. Il museo CAM, sempre pronto ad accogliere fermenti artistici che riflettano sull’attualità e sui ruoli sociali, accoglie l’esposizione censurata assicurandone la visione pubblica.

in collaboration with Antonio Manfredi
28th November 2013 > 15th January 2014
Sponsored by Griec.a.m. Ascensori Casoria

Extended until 27th February 2014

On November the 28th 2013 at 6.30 pm, CAM | Casoria Contemporary Art Museum presents “ErotiCAM_Secret Room II”. First censored by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities/Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici and then hosted by Antonio Manfredi at CAM, the project was born out of the idea of TEAMniel, Wien artists trio, and start from the erotic frescoes of Pompeii and Ercolano excavations to update their content. Through a photographic substitution of the main characters, in the “Secret Room II” historical evidence turn into 25 hard scenes.

This view of new lustful characters on those pictures decorating ancient Roman bath houses, gorgeous villas but also brothels, bewilders the audience thus posing questions on sexuality, selfconsciousness and artistic freedom. The project main aim is to interpret the audience reaction before the transformation of a piece of art into something real, which can be evaluated with how long viewers stay before the picture or video and through audience interaction invited to leave a comment about the works by either writing or drawing directly into the pictures.
The exhibition title recalls the place where the original “scandalous” evidences are kept – the “Secret Room”- inside the National Archeological Museum in Naples. The “compromising” collection has accurately been preserved since the Bourbons time, many times censored and hidden to the public view till the end of the 20th century, thus also symbolizing freedom to expression. The Ministry has now “censored” – following the legendary ban to sex scenes view – its new artistic guise by refusing “…the authorization to this use of images for opportunity reasons” and the exhibition inside the National Museum. CAM museum, always ready to welcome artistic trends that reflect the current situation and the social roles, welcomes the exposure censored, ensuring public viewing.

ErotiCAM bis Ende Februar verlängert

Zensiert vom Ministerium für Kulturelles Erbe und Aktivitäten/der Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici und von Antonio Manfredi ins CAM eingeladen, enthüllt das Projekt die “skandalösen” Fresken aus den Ausgrabungen von Pompeji und Herculaneum, um sie in erotische und lustvolle Szenen zu verwandeln. Persönlichkeiten wie Hermann Nitsch, Antonio Manfredi oder Carl Djerassi (die “Mutter” der Pille) sind nur einige von vielen bekannten Namen, die für das “Geheime Kabinett II” gewonnen werden konnten.

Am 28. November 2013 um 18.30 Uhr präsentiert das CAM | Casoria Contemporary Art Museum die neue Ausstellung “ErotiCAM_Das Geheime Kabinett II”. Ein Projekt, das zuerst vom Ministerium für Kulturelles Erbe und Aktivitäten/der Soprintendenza Beni Archeologici zu verhindern versucht wurde. Auf Einladung von Antonio Manfredi wird es nun im CAM gezeigt. Das Projekt von TEAMniel, einer Wiener Künstlergruppe, wurde aus der Idee geboren, die erotischen Fresken und Skulpturen der Ausgrabungen von Pompeji und Herkulaneum ins Heute zu holen: Durch eine fotografische Substitution der Hauptcharaktere wird Historisches in 25 zeitgenössische Szenen verwandelt.

Dieser Blick auf neue lustvolle Charaktere in diesen Bildern, die einst antike römische Badehäuser, prachtvolle Villen, aber auch Bordelle schmückten, wird die Besucher sicherlich auch verblüffen und Fragen nach Sexualität, Selbstbewusstsein und künstlerischer Freiheit aufwerfen. Ein großes Ziel des Projektes ist, die Reaktion der Besucher einzufangen, die die Transformation eines “Kunstwerkes” in etwas Reales beobachten können. Diese Reaktion wird sich auch anhand der Verweildauer vor den Werken und den Einschreibungen in die Bilder zeigen – denn jeder Besucher kann auf den Werken selbst schreiben oder zeichnen.

Der Titel der Ausstellung erinnert an den Ort, an dem die originalen “skandalösen” Bilder aufbewahrt werden – “Das Geheime Kabinett” im Nationalmuseum von Neapel. Die “kompromittierende” Sammlung besteht seit der Zeit der Bourbonen, die längste Zeit geschlossen und zensiert, und ist erst seit dem Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts der Öffentlichkeit uneingeschränkt zugänglich.

So steht “Das Geheime Kabinett II” auch für eine Freiheit des Ausdrucks und der Kunst. Denn das Ministerium versuchte nun wieder einmal zu “zensieren” (wie auch schon damals, um die Zurschaustellung von erotischen Motiven zu verhindern). Diesmal in neuem künstlerischen Gewand, wird “… die Erlaubnis für diese Nutzung der Bilder aus Gründen der Angebrachtheit …” sowie die Zustimmung zu einer Ausstellung im Nationalmuseum selbst widerrufen.

Das CAM Museum, das künstlerische Gärungsprozesse immer willkommen heißt, die die heutige Zeit und soziale Rollen reflektieren, zeigt nun die zensierte Ausstellung “Geheimes Kabinett II”, in der bekannte Persönlichkeiten wie Hermann Nitsch, Antonio Manfredi und Carl Djerassi (Erfinder der Antibabypille) mitwirken.

Mitwirkende Künstler: Veronika Bayer, Betty Bee, Manuel Werner Bräuer, Carl Djerassi, Alberto Del Genio, Claudia Feyerl, Daniel Feyerl, Mauro Paparo Filomarino, Tone Fink, Patrick Gerdenits, Petra Holasek, Caterina Flor Gümpel, Patricia Iosif, Lorena, Antonio Manfredi, Marialaura Matthey, Hermann Nitsch, Conchita Wurst, Ronald Zöttl, Pluto Pompom, Anonymous beauty.

Welcome to the politically incorrect museumInvito WellCAM_mailist

CAM museum caged; gates become exposition space for the solidly behind protest of 18 Neapolitan artists.
A long cage has been issued before CAM museum after recent news events; from June the 28th 2013 on the gratings are hanging the works of 18 Neapolitan artists, inspired by Casoria museum adventures and realized as solidly behind to CAM cultural campaign.

On June the 28th at 7.30 pm CAM museum opens to WellCAM_Welcome to the politically uncorrect museum.
Eight years after, the most rumoured museum in Europe is still open and its activity lively even though, like a caged lion, its entrance appears closed up in a metal fencing bringing the visitor to the museum path but dividing him from the rest of the world. That cage, from June the 28th, is becoming an exposition space, an open door to art, bringing works out with its arms open wide to the road. Hanging on the gratings are the works 18 Neapolitan artists realized as solidly behind the cultural resistance of CAM as inspired by the Casoria museum adventures.
From racism to corrupted politics, from violence to camorra, the story of the museum is involved in the social meaning of art.
Its story mixes perseverance and dedication, provocation and reflection, a difficult pathway for a space on a degraded province, which has become a reference and a symbol for those supporting culture notwithstanding the “arduous” place. Local and international situation hinted a thread to the artistic agenda of CAM. This inquiry through a news-based art has been many times unwelcome to criminal organizations and toupper politics spheres.
With this exhibition CAM wants to celebrate, with those ones who supported it, eight years commitment for culture and its vigour notwithstanding uncountless adversities.

curated by Antonio Manfredi

Take part to the selection of the election symbol, program, slogan and advert of the Movement of the world of Art and Culture VOTE ART_ Cultural Art Movement.

A symbol (graphic design or digital), a program (140 spaces max), a slogan (40 spaces max) and, on discretion of the participants, a video (30 sec. max, to post on Youtube), can be posted either on the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/voteartcammuseum, created for the occasion, or on Twitter @MuseoCAMCasoria or sent by e-mail at vota.arte@yahoo.com .

The whole will be loaded on the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/voteartcammuseum and, all those logos and videos reaching more than 50 “I like it”, will be shown in CAM halls on occasion of the Italian political Election Days, next 24 and 25 of February 2013.

Artists, designers, admen, video makers, poets, writers and everybody, whatever age, Italians and non-Italians are invited to participate to overcome the reality of fake and paradoxical symbols and election parties presented for the political elections.

The ironical event launched by CAM, following CAM Art War, on the one hand mocks a political class overcoming even the most extreme artistic expressions and on the other launches a clear message to the world of culture: an invitation to a reflection involving an active commitment on an Institutional level.

After gaining its space, CAM museum recovers the art revolutionby offering a political/cultural asylum to the Berlin Tacheles, center for art closed up last September by German authorities.
Even Germany, although leading the economic power of Europe is submitted to finance and banking damaging culture.
The CAM museum and its director Antonio Manfredi revolution against the critical situation of cultural spaces in Italy and worldwide keeps going on. CAM museum, first to arrange the protest, keeps on fighting to protect a common value, thus welcoming the appeal of the Tacheles Kunsthaus in Berlin by sustaing and hosting it, offering it asylum in its exhibition spaces. As far as 2011 CAM requested Germany for political/cultural asylum with a letter to Angela Merkel, and now offers itself as place for the “refugee” works of the artists of the Berlin gallery by permanently dedicating them a hall. Tacheles, international center for art managed by artists in the very heart of the german city since 1990 after the Berlin wall fall, hosted the CAM exhibition Maybe and has been definitely forced to close last September by german authorities. In its place a shopping center, thus deleting tens of years of history and cultural vivacity. It is against all this that the art revolution, CAM Art War, arose by involving a big number of international artists and cultural institutions, making the powder keg of the world of art unrest explode. Abandoned by their own institutions and often forced to interrupt their activities due to lack of funds, the places of culture and the employees appeal with sorrow to survival by means of a pacific protest and CAM Art War by offering a political/cultural asylum provides a strong signal of solidarity and another gesture of protest.

The performance site, a small house in a remote industrial area, is located behind Kassel Hauptbahnhof/main station, which is one of the dOCUMENTA(13) sites this year 2012. The performance will start at 12 pm sharp and will last exactly 60 minutes. It will feature Miriam Wuttke as solo performer in an installation inside as well as outside the house and will merge pieces of her series “HOME-LAND-LUXURY” with the concept developed for dOCUMENTA(13). This will include a 60 minute auto-video of Antonio Manfredi, Italian artist and contemporary art museum director, who initiated CAM Art War and who was involved closely in the development of the piece. The soundwork is created by Berlin based sound artist Veronica Mota who will compose her 60 minute piece according to performative movement and gesture and the images of the video of Antonio Manfredi. Visitors can enter the house as well as watch the performance from the outside and are very much welcome to become the recipients of a token which will be given to them by the end of the 60 minutes.

CAM Art War | The revolution of the artists
The final aim of artistic production is the work of art, unique and untouchable, an extension of human self- consciousness meant as an understanding of the human condition in contemporary society. To destroy it with fire means to deny its intended function, almost an act of vandalism modifying its original meaning and turning it into means of social protest. When artists do this with a sense of solidarity, this gesture becomes a protest against the status quo. CAM Art War is a peaceful revolution engaged in by artists and intellectuals to fight against the homogenization of the cultures…“
From CAM Art War manifesto, April 2012

——————————————————-

Antonio Manfredi, museum director and initiator of CAM Art War, is sitting in his desolate museum in the outskirts of Napoli, on a simple chair, his back to an empty white wall, in front of him a pile of ashes and burned pieces of art. Crumbled paint, melted canvas, lost images. No words. Why did he start the action of burning paintings of his museum collection? He calls it a war. His weapon, the fire, is the catalyst of destruction, the pile of ashes is his material and manifest statement. The image of fire devouring an appraised piece of contemporary artwork triggers questions and bewilderment in all of us, creators and recipients. On the first sight, it seems to be a harsh method creating nothing but destruction and public arouse. Giving it a deeper thought it reflects what we are willing to do anyway bowing to the dictatorship of the market: Burning our contents. Burning our history. Burning our individual heritage, our cultural richness, our pride, our souls. Finally, the significant implication of catalysing the process of decomposition is the idea behind the material object. It becomes a common value in the moment it is documented, communicated and openly discussed.
In this way, the ashes as the material left overs, reprersenting the idea of the common value behind the act of destruction, become a fertilizer and a symbol of change and reconstruction.
Torpeding the common hierarchy and coherences between victim and perpetrator, the act becomes a sabotage of a conservative and closed system.
The human and individual aspect of this act is the process of transgression, a gesture of movement against an isolated settledness, crossing a border to overcome a nonexistent fear which is imposed upon us.

———————————–

This is my home and I built it. I am a daughter of Europe, a daughter of YOU as the embassador of the gereration handing over our common history and values to me. I am here to receive and to act according to these values. And I am YOUR mother, a giver, a care taker, a fighter. I prepare our common grounds. Using the ashes as a fertilizer for new things to grow, to come and to outlast. I spread the ashes to mingle with the wind, the earth, the air, the water. I use my freedom to carry the weight I learn to cast off, piece by piece, step by step, day by day. This is a silent correspondence.
Miriam Wuttke, June 2012

dOCUMENTA(13) is dedicated to artistic research and forms of imagination that explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with, yet not subordinated to, theory. These are terrains where politics are inseparable from a sensual, energetic, and worldly alliance between current research in various scientific and artistic fields and other knowledges, both ancient and contemporary. dOCUMENTA (13) is driven by a holistic and non-logocentric vision that is skeptical of the persisting belief in economic growth. This vision is shared with, and recognizes, the shapes and practices of knowing of all the animate and inanimate makers of the world, including people. (C. Christov-Bakargiev)

CAMouflage Action

Starting from March the 2nd 2012, the CAM Museum in Casoria will cover the artworks of its permanent collection and only show their reproductions due to its acknowledged impossibility to guarantee the sufficient standard for their preservation, enjoyment, improvement and promotion missing economic resources and social support. Though the visitors will be welcome, it will be denied to them the chance to enjoy the works but with photocopies, like to many other spaces in Italy as well as Europe is denied the opportunity to make culture available. In Tacheles gallery in Berlin as for Madre museum in Naples, in Valle theatre in Rome as for the Riso in Palermo, as for the cuts to British and Dutch museums, the resources for cultural activities and programs dramatically reduced. In a society where everything is Merchandising, Benefit, Marketing; where banks, economic and financial lobbies rule and monopolize markets; where governments are absent, impotent or collusive; where culture and scientific research seems an unbearable burden during economic slump, CAMouflage_Photocopies for a cultural revolution, is the art protest for civilization and CAM, in a place of Camorra, says Enough! by becoming a place for challenge.

On the occasion photocopies of the 1.000 works of CAM permanent collection – definitely substituting the original works – will be sent to the President for Culture and Education at the European Parliament, Doris Pack, to the Italian Minister for Cultural Heritage and Activities, Lorenzo Ornaghi, to the President of the Campania Region, Stefano Caldoro and to the Major of Casoria city, Vincenzo Carfora.

Something odd is happening at the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum (CAM), near Naples. Some paintings and sculptures are being torched. Great art has felt the lick of flames before, but often by ransacking or accident. Here, for more than a week, the director of the gallery has been the one setting the artworks alight. read more
