Coaches Mario Mainetti - Fondazione Prada
Partner KU Leuven

Smiley faces and magic pills. On rave and contemporary art.

Unraveling contemporary arts’ symbiosis with club culture. How do club culture and contemporary art inform each other, and in what ways do they exert influence on their (urban) surroundings? 

The Art Lab is divided into three different moments, each taking a closer look at a topic that concerns Horst, that is viable for the long term development of Asiat, and that links back to the broad contemporary art discourse.

Lab participants should have a proven interest and affiliation with club culture, some professional background and/or a specific project willing to deepen out. 

Coaches & Guests

Mario Mainetti


For the last two decades, Fondazione Prada’s activities have analyzed intentions and relevance through an evolution of projects. These have included ‘Utopian’ monographic artist commissions, contemporary philosophy conferences, research exhibitions and initiatives related to the field of cinema. With the opening of a permanent cultural complex in Milan, the Fondazione offers new opportunities to enlarge and enrich our processes of learning. Mario Mainetti is chief curator at Fondazione Prada, and was involved in the conception and execution of The Double Club, a project by Belgian artist Carsten Höller in an old Victorian warehouse in London. The place functioned as a temporary restaurant, bar and a dance club, infusing typically “Western” with Congolese music, lifestyle and other cultural manifestations - proning questions on identity, entertainment and hospitality.
