Alessandra Saviotti’s (b. 1982) work centers on participatory and collaborative processes according to the motto: ‘Collaboration is better than competition’.

Saviotti is co-founder of the art collective Aspra.mente (2006) which focuses on the conception of interdisciplinary and agri-cultural projects that mainly deal with the social and cultural contexts of the site where the artworks are displayed. She is researcher and assistant curator at The Museum of Arte Útil, a project initiated by artist Tania Bruguera in collaboration with the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Queens Museum, NY. She will be in residence with the support of the project DE.MO./MOVIN’UP II sess. 2013 created by Ministero dei beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo, Direzione Generale per il paesaggio, le belle arti, l’architettura e l’arte contemporanee, Direzione Generale per lo spettacolo dal vivo, and GAI – Associazione per il Circuito dei Giovani Artisti Italiani.
