So who are 'we'?
These works were 'born in the 60's', meaning that innovations in tech and art, experimental and art practices, or avant-garde 'bad manners' and interventions, were 'expected' and shared with generations of media and political artists, surrealists, anarchists, visual alchemists and other creators of 'imaginariums' of 'to whom it may concern'.
