MoCC (Museum of Contemporary Cuts) presents a new collection of artworks by Lanfranco Aceti titled Soma. MoCC with its wide range of institutional collaborations (from NYU to the RCA, from Goldsmiths College to La Sorbonne) is a leading art initiative that blurs artistic, curatorial and research boundaries. It is an art project that uses as a medium the curatorial framework in order to explore new ways of engaging with and displaying content, while analyzing and attempting to understand the contemporary relationship between arts and economics in a time of crisis. MoCC is a mobile museum that exists both in physical and virtual spaces, exhibiting in a range of spaces and existing within international museums, art institutions, galleries and universities. It also acts as a public archive that analyzes issues related to visualization, archiving and curating in the XXIst century.

MoCC presents new artworks and performances titled Soma by Lanfranco Aceti (IT, UK, US and TK, b. 1967) who is known for his socio-political artworks and art interventions, which exist both online and in public spaces. Through his artworks, installations, performances and activism, Aceti explores the incongruity of contemporary times and the dissolution of social space. Absurdity, folly and a dark irony characterize his artworks which explore the Kafkian relationship between the individual, the body and the power of personified corporations and institutions. Aceti has exhibited internationally and done art interventions at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, Tate Modern, MoMA, Art Athina, the Center Pompidou, the Venice Biennale, the John Hansard Gallery and other venues around the world.
