The 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.

Art fairs abound these days and they are generally moments in which display, discourse, commerce, and criticism intersect and collide; as well as catalysts for new projects in their hosting cities. From the 4th until the 6th of November the art world flocked to Turin to attend the annual contemporary art fair, Artissima. Whilst the fair itself is recognised as an essential appointment on the Italian art calendar, the city of Turin also became the locus of a myriad of new projects from exhibition openings to book presentations to performances and site-specific installations.
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.
L'almanacco dei fumetti della gleba
Twenty years after their debut on the market in the form of a self-produced fanzine and distributed in a few dozen copies, the Fumetti della Gleba have become a cult phenomenon and a benchmark in the world of Italian comics: Marguati, Berutti, Batma & Robi, Iodosan Pattuglia Spaziale, Gabonzo, Capitan Giustizia and all the other characters that populate the Gleba-world are now part of our collective imagination.
Dr. Pira, with his unique childlike, chaotic and surreal aesthetic and the wild and enlightening plots of his comics, has acquired over the years a following that does not only consist of fans of the animated strips but rather a whole generation of comic fans.
This book is a tribute to the artist Salvo (Salvatore Mangione, Leonforte 22 May, 1947–Turin 12 September, 2015).
Drawings from the personal Salvo archive, some of which have never been published before, together with two poems written by the artist for “Salvo.Seven etchings and seven poems”, Volpaia Books, are published here. This publication is a small atlas which functions as a guide through the work of Salvo as well as through the cultural geography and Mediterranean landscape that stretches from the hills of northern Italy to Sicily, from ancient Greek classicism to the oriental sunsets of the Balkans. The drawings are presented in the form of sketches and, they are like the handwritten draft of a poem – a sudden inspiration that has been jotted down on paper. If we look carefully, the drawings are composed of elements that are repeated and become, from time to time, complex solutions that transform the artist’s inner universe into visions which the reader must decipher.
16a Quadriennale d’arte
Altri tempi, altri miti
Other times, Other myths is the catalog of the 16th Art Quadriennale – the exhibition that brings together in an in-depth and articulated manner, the artistic and cultural production of Italy after 2000 for the first time. Organized by the foundation La Quadriennale and Azienda Speciale Palexpo, the exhibition is divided into ten exhibition sections, each conceived by a different curator. In total, it includes ninety-nine artists and one hundred and fifty works.
Following Anton Bruhin’s retrospective at Istituto Svizzero in Milan curated by Arthur Fink, Le caselle di Anton Bruhin (23 October – 12 December 2015), this catalog gathers works from different periods of the artist’s career, though giving particular prominence to his drawings in analog and digital form—the Pixel-Bildli and Hice for Weiss series, or his plastic mosaics. A foreword by Salvatore Lacagnina and a contribution by Fink introduce the reader to Bruhin’s multifarious work, while a conversation with the artist helps unfold his eclectic strategies.
