books at MAXXIPasolini. The ghost of originby Massimo Recalcati

Maxxi auditorium
free admission subject to availability

One hundred years from the birth of the great intellectual and in anticipation of the exhibition, Recalcati shows us how we can inherit the political thought of a great prophet of the contemporary world.

Pasolini was a visionary: he was able to read the beginning of an era of barbarism, of a ‘New Fascism’ in post-World War II capitalist Italy. Recalcati, one of Italy’s best-known psychoanalysts, guides us through the time of the fall, which surrounds the whole of Pasolini’s thought and punctuates the exploration of a world slipping further and further into darkness. To save oneself from the spectre of the new fascism, one must enter the institutions and transform them, not taking power as a starting point but brotherhood. It is a call for the young sons of the bourgeoisie of Sixty-eight and, perhaps, not just for them.
