Radio GAMeC Real Live
On March 22nd, 2020, during the early stages of the Coronavirus health-crises, Lorenzo Giusti, with the support of Lara Facco and Leonardo Merlini, founded Radio GAMeC, a multi-format digital platform set out to cultivate a cultural discourse, keeping the narrative focused on the present context and on imagining a new future. Radio GAMeC has been included in the UNESCO Museums around the world in the face of COVID-19 report as one of the world’s best museum projects developed during the lockdown period.
In its second format, from June 18th to July 23rd 2020, five evening appointments held in the GAMeC courtyard welcomed Nic Cester & The Milano Elettrica, Cristiano Godano, Andrea Pennacchi, Alessandro Sciarroni and Virgilio Sieni, accompanied by new voices of the city of Bergamo creating a narrative of new beginnings revolving around art and culture.
Radio GAMeC Real Live started shifting the museum-audience interaction from a digital platform dimension to a tangible framework, instituting an open and safe space respectful of all health restrictions. The stage for Radio GAMeC Real Live was the captivating Videomobile of the MASBEDO artist duo, originally created by Beatrice Bulgari for Fondazione In Between Art Film on the occasion of Manifesta 12 Palermo, consisting of an old 1970s OM van converted into a “video van”, a mobile location, a tool for narrative creations that may serve as a workshop space as well as stage for artistic performance.
Fondazione In Between Art Film is the studio that also produced a documentary on the city of Bergamo that was finalized by MASBEDO during the months that followed incorporating part of the footage that the artists had filmed during the Radio GAMeC Real Live events.
