Description: the idea comes from my photographic work "1999 slide for Human Borders", where I talk about the need for men to shut themselves up behind bars to defend private property. The sculptural work "Human Borders" is the action that transforms the bars of a voluntary imprisonment into a chair that will serve for comparison, common sense and discussions about the attitudes of this society, with the aim of realizing projects that favor the achievement of the 17 goals of the UN to be achieved by 2030. Reviews and criticisms: the work was created on the occasion of the Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto meeting to be held at the MACRO Asylum Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome on the occasion of the REBIRTH FORUM ROMA 2019 from 24 to 26 January 2019, therefore not have never been subjected to publications or criticisms. Today the work is present at the Forum hall at MACRO Asilo di Roma, Via Nizza 138.
