SPECIAL EVENTS AND SELF CURATED ART ACTIONS WITH A SPLINTER OF MERRY CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE
The Montesinos Foundation (TMF) plays around with what is around: money, official documents, trends and disinformation are amongst the favourites.
TMF often works in collaboration with various other artists and aims to endorse inspired and independant individuals wanting to bring ambitious projects to life. TMF gives them the possibility to achieve their goals out of the beaten track of a very codified art world by uniting forces, using art as an iron hand inside a velvet glove. With the help from various free spirited allied benefactors and occasional international partners TMF organizes awards, charity nights, special events and self-curated art actions with a complete freedom of mind and a splinter of merry civil disobedience.
The Montesinos Foundation is not a service.

BONFIRE OF POVERTY
LE BÛCHER DES ENDETT’ES – ANNUAL PERFORMANCE IN GENEVA SINCE 2016
Inspired by one of the most striking images of medieval Geneva, this project offers the Genevan population a great moment of symbolic jubilation by revisiting the concept of a pyre set up in a public place. The idea of this liberating fire is to invite everyone to come and get rid of those “burdensome” documents that weigh down our existence : parking tickets, court summonses, overdue invoices, reminders or receipts, either the originals or photocopies depending on each one’s preference.
