«A work must be violent. It must feel like getting punched in the stomach. Silent but hard, hard but silent, like a fire underneath the ashes, dark, growling» (C. Parmiggiani)

On this special event and building upon his latest book Nel tempo della povertà (Magonza 2019), Massimo Recalcati will read and interpret the poetics of Claudio Parmiggiani, one of the leading exponents of art since the 1950s.

Following the fundamental guidelines of his work, the author will retrace the steps of the artist and his introverted and mysterious art, which, despite being all about hiding, concealment and secrecy, “does not concern a metaphysical spiritualism contrary to matter, but thrives on this latter. It is all about matter”.
