Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art Life Politics: Italia 1918–1943

Fondazione Prada, Milan, Largo Isarco 2, Milan, Italy

The exhibition “Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art Life Politics: Italia 1918-1943,” curated by Germano Celant will open to the public on February 18th at Fondazione Prada in Milan. The exhibition looks into the world of Italian art and culture during the interwar years, creating an immersive experience by reconstructing the contexts (spatial, social, temporal and political) in which the works of art were created, this is achieved by using a selection of over 600 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, posters, furniture, and architectural plans and models created by over 100 authors. To name but a few, Giacomo Balla, Carlo Carrà, Giorgio de Chirico, Fausto Melotti, Gino Severini, Mario Sironi and Arturo Tosi.

As Germano Celant explains, the exhibition sets out to question “the idealism in exhibitions, where works of art, either in museums or other institutions, are displayed in an anonymous, monochromatic environment, generally on a white surface, to connect them to period photographic testimony and reinsert them in their original historical communication space”.
