    SALVO, Se io disegno questo at Norma Mangione Gallery, Turin

    “Se io disegno questo” (“If I draw this”) is a phrase from Della Pittura, a book written by Salvo in 1980 with 238 axiomatic propositions in the style of Wittgenstein’s Tractatus. Part of the text reflects on the relationship between seeing, knowing and thinking. About fifty drawings, dating from the early 1980s to the 2000s, will be on display in the exhibition. From the Archivio Salvo, they have never been shown before. (more...)

    Teatro Popular by Peter Friedl at Lumiar Cité, Lisbon

    In his first solo exhibition in Portugal, Peter Friedl presents objects derived from a Portuguese street theatre format commonly known as Teatro Dom Roberto. Its stage (barraca) is a minimalist DIY construction covered with cloth. The construction conceals puppeteers from the public gaze, as they direct the violent and noisy actions of the puppets. The traditional Dom Roberto theatre is a minor art, based on typecasting, repetition and quite a restricted repertoire such as O Barbeiro Diabólico or A Tourada. (more...)

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.

SALVO
Salvo


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.
