Nouvel Building, Auditorium 400 (on September 28). Screening at the Sabatini Building, Auditorium from November 6
One True Art - 16 Responses to the Question What Art is is a performative artistic experiment in which the aim is to come up with a definition of art or reflect on the reasons why this definition is impossible.

The work is an invitation to reconsider the notion of art by looking at it from a series of simultaneous perspectives, ranging from the metaphysical to the political.The central element in this project is a one-day public (on September 28) eventspecially conceived to focus attention on the issue of the nature and specificity of art. The event is intended to be an exceptional gathering of passionate minds all playing their part in seeing art from a slightly different angle.

Sixteen art specialists, including philosophers, critics, curators and artists, have been invited to take part in a series of 30-minute interviews held in quick succession in front of an audience in the Museum auditorium. The topics to be covered, order of interviews and sequence of questions have been carefully prepared over the course of one year.

Audiovisual material recorded during the event will be screened from November 6, 2013, until January 6, 2014, in the auditorium of Sabatini Building, except Sundays and holidays.
