ODD marks a ground where a set of interactions is encouraged – pertaining less to formal artistic activities and more to hybrid gestures, idiosyncratic reactions and self-reproducing curiosity.

Not constrained by an institutional frame, choices stem from the urgency of private encounters, taken as starting points for addressing the world.

ODD provides tools for action and resistance to all those seeking to craft and take pleasure in our world.
