Casa Capra Casa Capra launches its new season with a special collaboration and invites Careof to compile a selection of film works from its own video archive that was created in 1987 and progressively became one of the most thorough and interesting observatories on Italian artistic productions in the field of moving images.

Casa Capra is an independent exhibition space for research and artistic production in the Magrè neighborhood, in the city of Schio, immersed in the spaces of daily life: between the newsstand, a small corner shop and the town’s café. 

The location is far from being the most conventional: Casa Capra aims to find a new territory, a space mostly out of the ordinary art networks in the big cities, in order to tell new stories through the works of the artists that are a part of it. 



Careof's video archive

Created thanks to the will and passion of Careof’s founder (Mario Gorni) and continued over time as Careof grew, it acquired, in 2006, an important recognition from the Ministry of Culture which included it in the list of Historical Archives of national relevance. 

The Careof's video archive includes around seven thousand titles today: a trustworthy and privileged observatory for a complete overview of the production models and artistic research of the last few decades. Included in the catalog are artists' works ranging from the first experimental works of the 70s to the productions of the last few generations. In addition to that, there are documents of exhibitions, conferences, performances and international art events, including: Biennales, Manifesta, Documenta, Skulptur Projekte, enhanced by interviews with the main artists, critics, and curators.
