On the occasion of the publication of Flashback, Eclipse: The Political Imaginary of Italian Art in the 1960s, the book’s author, Romy Golan – Professor, PhD Program in Art History at the Graduate Center, City University of New York – will talk with Nicola Trezzi, Director and Curator of CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo. While most analyses have treated the 1960s in Italy as the decade of “presentism” par excellence, Golan’s book makes the counterargument that in this decade Italian artists did not forget history but rather reimagined it in oblique form. Following these premises, the flashback and the eclipse – two forms of nonlinear temporality – are the main tools through which Golan identifies and explores this imaginary. Largely mediated by black-and-white images culled from art, design, and architecture magazines, photo books, film stills, and exhibition documentation, Golan’s ideas are presented through the following protagonists: artists Michelangelo Pistoletto, Giosetta Fioroni and Felice Casorati; photographer Ugo Mulas; designers Ettore Sottsass and Bruno Munari; curators Luciano Caramel and Achille Bonito Oliva; architect Piero Sartogo; filmmakers Michelangelo Antonioni and Bernardo Bertolucci; and writer Massimo Bontempelli.

 

The event will be held in English.
