A series of seminars reflecting on the meaning and value of themes such as identity, reception and migration

The seminars held by directors, anthropologists and sociologists exploring the key issues of the exhibition prompted by the artist continue.

Starting out from his latest book Punto Zero. Il crepuscolo dei barbari, we meet Alberto Abruzzese, an Italian sociologist, writer and essayist to talk about a new space for western habitation and the crisis deriving from it. A crisis of subjectivity, identity and subjectification – in a word: an anthropological crisis – that come not so much from an “outside” as from inside, that is “from the very way of becoming of those who continue to inhabit this identity”.
