If Art Were To Disappear Tomorrow What Stories Would We Tell Our Kids? is a project that aims to create an archive of tweet-structured texts capable of describing contemporary artworks. This project came about with the idea of ordering a huge amount of works that share the common feature of being very simple yet very meaningful. Italian artist Roberto Fassone and curator Giovanna Manzotti have tried to condense the shapeless mass of images and information of contemporary artworks present in their computers and on the web, into a simple, functional and structured system, in which the complexity of the art world is partially compressed into the brevity of one tweet. The result can be described as an uncanny collection of contemporary fairy tales. First developed as a Twitter based performance comprising hundreds of tweets, the project has been now translated in book form, including 94 tweets organized into a single story.
