a Hou Hanru project
27 February – 7 June 2015
curated by Giulia Ferracci and Elena Motisi
Contemporary culture today passes by way of unofficial channels that have generated an alternative path to the traditional ways of “making culture”.
MAXXI is proceeding with its survey of these realities through the project The Independent devoted to the promotion of the independent spaces and thinking present in Italy and elsewhere and by continuing to offer itself as a platform and hub for emerging creative forces.
Following the presentation between June and September 2014 of the two Italian groups cura., based in Rome and Isola Art Center, in Milan, this time the project features NERO, a quarterly periodical dealing with contemporary culture based in Rome , but also an agency that works in the field of culture and the arts, producing events and contemporary art exhibitions, books, catalogues, and artist’s books
NERO. La scrittura degli echi
La scrittura degli echiis a work based on sound, a daily palimpsest of audio contributions that are distributed via the museum’s communications service in order to transmit a collective and ephemeral voice: free interventions, original and otherwise, by various authors in the form of recordings, readings, extracts and sound tracks.
Everyday and in unpredictable ways
the museum halls are traversed by audio tracks
Artists, writers, photographers, musicians and intellectuals have freely contributed to the project, constructing an original and atypical “aural” story: 90 voices of protagonists on the Italian and international cultural scene construct a collective and ephemeral voice capable of indirectly challenging the museum structure.
La scrittura degli echi presents audio contributions from: Acchiappashpirt, After Howl, Cory Arcangel, Gianfranco Baruchello, Chiara Barzini, Elisabetta Benassi, Riccardo Benassi, Alicja Bielawska, Ross Birrell, Massimiliano Bomba, Carola Bonfili and Francesco Fonassi, Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Giuseppe Casetti, Lorenzo Castore, Spartacus Chetwynd, Alessandro Cicoria, Mike Cooper, Claudia Comte, Matthias Connor with Oliver Payne and Brian Degraw, Nina Cristante, Enzo Cucchi, Tony Cutrone, Dario D’Aronco, Emanuele De Raymondi, Costantino Della Gherardesca, Goldschmied & Chiari, Filippo de Pisis, Rä di Martino, Stanislao Di Giugno, Canedicoda, Dunja Herzog, Esc, Bob Flanagan, Mario Garcia Torres, Gelitin, Francesca Grilli, Grip Casino, Helena Hladilová, Heroin In Tahiti, Invernomuto, Tobias Kaspar, Salvatore Lacagnina, Vincenzo Latronico, Emiliano Maggi, Marcello Maloberti, Miltos Manetas, Michele Manfellotto, Fabio Mauri, Mark Morgan, Maurizio Nannucci, Matteo Nasini, Caterina Nelli, Olaf Nicolai, Giorgio Orbi, Eddie Peake, Francesco Pecoraro, Nicola Pecoraro, Luana Perilli, Alessandro Piangiamore, Cesare Pietroiusti, Giuseppe Pietroniro, Fabio Marco Pirovino, Gianni Politi, Riccardo Previdi, Primitive Art, Federico Proietti, Marco Raparelli, Max Renkel, Moira Ricci, Claudio Rocchetti, Amelia Rosselli, Andrea Salvino, Thomas Sauter, Lele Saveri, Nora Schultz, Marinella Senatore, Lorenzo Senni, Sissi, Davide Stucchi, Tijana Mamula, Luca Trevisani, Patrick Tuttofuoco, Nico Vascellari, Valentina Vetturi, Johanna Viprey, Vipra, Luca Vitone.
