Event type


It’s Moving From I to It is a short script conceived and directed by British artist and writer Tim Etchells. Using text, visual material and performance to explore issues of authorship, language and institutional rhetoric, this play instigates a unique dialogue with the context in which each performance is given, allowing a reflection on different modes of cultural production and dissemination.

Produced and Presented by FormContent.



FormContent is a curatorial initiative, founded in 2007 with the intent of experimenting with exhibition formats and fostering collaborations that challenge the reciprocity of artistic and curatorial practices. Its current programme It’s moving from I to It has been developed as a nomadic curatorial project intended to explore modes of cultural production and dissemination through a series of different initiatives and collaborations.
