Errors and the unexpected
Lapsus is an International call for photographic and video projects curated by the Italian critic Marinella Paderni, which invites artists to reflect on how "History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental 'mistakes' which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video; such slips or lapsus' often occur without the knowledge of the author, who can use them as a point of strength in the final work."
