THE BOYS AND KIFER – PROJECTS FROM 2014 TO 2018
The Boys and Kifer is a performative and music project founded by Roberto Casti in 2014 with the aim to create a fictional band that could investigate new ways of relationships through the mix of collective imaginaries and rituals. The project involved the collaboration with different artists, musicians and thinkers, giving rise to lives/performances in which the identities and the individual practices are aligned with the aim to generate community events.
