THE RE­DIS­COV­ERY OF FU­TUR­ISM

Where Milan - - WHERE NOW HOT DATES -

“Post Zang Tumb Tu­uum. Art Life Pol­i­tics: Italia 1918–1943” is the evoca­tive ti­tle of the ex­hi­bi­tion cur­rently show­ing at the Fondazione Prada. Cu­rated by Ger­mano Ce­lant, the ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores art and cul­ture in Italy in the years be­tween World War I and II. Over 600 paint­ings, sculp­tures, pho­to­graphs, posters, ar­chi­tec­tural mod­els and fur­ni­ture shed light on the so­cial and po­lit­i­cal con­text in which they were cre­ated, and sub­se­quently in­ter­preted by the pub­lic of that era. The vast ex­hi­bi­tion space ex­tends be­tween the South gallery, the De­pos­ito, the North gallery and the Podium, pro­vid­ing an im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence con­sist­ing of 24 par­tial re­con­struc­tions of pub­lic and pri­vate spa­ces. These full-size recre­ations from pe­riod pho­to­graphs fea­ture orig­i­nal works by artists such as Gi­a­como Balla, Carlo Carrà, Felice Ca­so­rati, Gior­gio de Chirico and Gior­gio Mo­randi.
