ArtSpeaksForItself (ASFI) Lunch Performance (by invitation) Arnaud Cohen initiated the ArtSpeaksForItself foundation to foster dialogue and exchange between artists, curators and critical thinkers. In the face of an art world increasingly shaped by corporate interests, ASFI seeks to facilitate meaningful artist-led encounters set in convivial and intimate settings with a view to break down traditional roles of spectatorship associated with performance.
