ELISABETTA BENASSI
It Starts With the Firing


A public dispute about the value of contemporary art and its reception has inspired the creation of It Starts With the Firing by Elisabetta Benassi. This artist’s book reactivates a controversy which took place in 1970s London and affected the Tate Galleries’ collecting strategies—in particular, the acquisition of Equivalent VIII, a work by minimalist artist Carl Andre made in firebrick.

CHIARA CAMONI
Certain Things


Sometimes the expression of thought through visual form becomes a necessity, coinciding with basic needs—albeit very complex. For artist Chiara Camoni, encountering the mystery of creation is a practice as necessary as eating and drinking, or going for a walk on a sunny day. Her works are linked to the idea of flow and fusion with a simple and basic daily dimension in which the current of daily life freezes to a halt and emerges in meaningful and autonomous forms. Chiara’s works can be created just about anywhere, more often than not in her kitchen; at times, with the assistance of friends and relatives who happen to pass by, all members of what can be called her extended studio.

VV.AA.
7759. Bodies, Logistics, and Labor


Considering the case of the dockers of Genoa and their long tradition of self-management, this book follows the networks of the port’s labor and its professions, in relation to ongoing evolutions of technology, the construction of giant ships, and the volatility of markets. This publication closely examines the notion of surplus value through logistics, a science capable of altering our way of thinking and our perception of time and space, in the context of the digital era, the dimension of globalization, and how the metropolis challenges our perception of reality.
