Little Constellation, small states on un-certain stereotypes, is a precious DVDs box composed of fourteen dvd - thirteen singles documentaries and a feature film - for a total duration of 180 minutes. The collection explores the state of contemporary art, in thirteen small European states: Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, and in some micro-geo-cultural European areas, including Canton Ticino, Ceuta, Gibraltar and Kaliningrad. The documentaries and the film recount the whole research project conducted from 2004 to 2010 by artists / authors Rita Canarezza & Pier Paolo Coro, through interviews realized to differnt art curators, artists and institutions in each country, with the contributions of sound and video art works of many artists, which they’re part of the project. The DVDs box set is produced in a limited edition of 300 copies numbered and signed by the authors, curated by Roberto Daolio with an introduction text by Alessandro Castiglioni, and it is released following the volume Little Constellation published by Mousse Publishing in 2010.
