Mattia Stompo

GatheringIn 1994, the United Kingdom approved the 'Criminal Justice and Public Order Act' within the Criminal Justice Bill, containing several sections designed to suppress the growing free-party started in the late 80s. The Act targeted Electronic-Dance music, defining it as "wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats". The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act empowered the law enforcement to arrest citizens who appeared to be: preparing to hold a rave, waiting for a rave to start or attending a rave. 23 years have passed since the Bill approval but, despite its function, the UK rave community grew exponentially nonetheless. Making something illegal that human beings have done from the beginning of this genre is unlawful. From African priests to Korean shamans, there was and still is the belief that dance and music can open communication with intangible powers and produce effective benefits for the communities involved: self-knowledge; fuller understanding of the natural world; good health; and a sense of belonging to a supportive group in an often obscure but ultimately understandable universe. 'Gathering' is a photographic project that tells the carrying out of 5 illegal parties in London during the past summer.
