"To think that there can be groupings of art in ethical form, based on the morals of individuals, is a very interesting and unprecedented thing, something that did not exist ... Un unicum" - Alessandro Mendini

"The morale of individuals" is the theme created by #AlessandroMendini for the biennial of do ut 2018-2019, godfather of this fourth edition together with #PhilipRylands. The chosen theme emphasizes the ethical "revolution" that can be triggered by individual responsibility and by the actions of each one of us, demonstrating the power that the individual has when he connects with others, generating a responsible collective sensitivity in the compared to their community.

The two-year 2018-2019 edition of #DoUtDo represents the opportunity to reflect - starting from art - on the model of a management of social responsibility capable of collecting individual sensitivity to achieve common, shared and measurable objectives.

The works collected up to December 2018, of Italian and international artists, make up the collection of do-uting protagonists throughout the 2019 of exhibitions and traveling events. The talk will be an opportunity to present the collection and invite visitors to the first works to be exhibited during Arte Fiera 2019 in different locations in the city of Bologna: Bologna Academy of Fine Arts, Archiginnasio Municipal Library, ArteFiera, Enrico Astuni Gallery, Bologna, Palazzo d'Accursio. A dozen works by the artists participating in the 2018-2019 edition will be visible: Fabrizio Cotognini, #CuoghiCorsello, Alberto Di Fabio, #FlavioFavelli, #MimmoJodice, Massimo Kaufmann, Julia Krahn, #NinoMigliori, #MoatazNasr, #KatjaNoppes, Simone Pellegrini , #ThomasRuff, #PietroRuffo. During the talk, further appointments of the traveling exhibition will also be announced during the year.
