The Histories of Art.On the principles of literary composition | Seminar with Tommaso Pincio
MAXXI Auditorium – admittance €5.00; admittance to 5 seminars €20.00; free for myMAXXI card holders. The purchase of a ticket allows for reduced price museum entrance (€8.00) within one week of issue.
Five seminars with international philosophers, composers, artists, choreographers and writers to explore and comprehend the expressive idioms of contemporary creativity.
In literature, rather than with narrative prose the term composition is generally associated with poetry. However, if rather than from this last the concept and term compistion is drawn from architecture, then one enters into a metaphor of narrative “construction”. In this last seminar we ask how from time to time the structural equilibrium and the ornament of execution come into conflict or harmony, while that between “inside” and “out” immediately becomes a fundamental dialectic. However, when faced with a construction – whether it be of bricks or words – we should be asking whether it belongs to us (and therefore us to it) or not.
Tommaso Pincio (Rome, 1963) is the author of a number of novels including Un amore dell’altro mondo and Cinecittà (published by Einaudi) and the most recent Panorama published by Enne Enne Editore and the winner of the Sinbad Prize 2015 for Italian narrative.
