Friday, December 16 the second chapter of SUPERBLAST, a project by NAM-Not A Museum which combines art, exhibition and publishing practices, will come to the end. This experience will be closed with the presentation of the book ‘nel paese delle ultime cose’ | SUPERBLAST II, edited by NERO Editions, in the presence of the authors and artists involved.
A group of people inhabited a space for a period of time. From this place inside and outside the city, they observed the world. In nel paese delle ultime cose catastrophe has already happened, and its inhabitants dig through the ashes searching for what or who survived, coming to terms with the future.
This book is the editorial result of an experimental process which sees the blending of critical thinking and artistic work within a single project. During their residency at Manifattura Tabacchi, each artist was accompanied by an author who elaborated a text from a specific element of their work.
The book nel paese delle ultime cose, published by NERO Editions, abandons the form of the traditional exhibition catalogue. It is the result of the dialogue and the lively exchange among the authors Angela Balzano, Ivan Carozzi, Giulia Crispiani, Federico Di Vita, Matteo Grilli, Laura Tripaldi and the artists Irene Adorni, Roberto Fassone, Beatrice Favaretto, Lorenzo Lunghi, MRZB and Davide Sgambaro, with editorial by Caterina Taurelli Salimbeni and afterword by Caterina Molteni.
This publication, which combines research materials, photographic documentation, narration and theoretical exploration, reflects the elusiveness of the subject under
investigation returning a fluid snapshot of the contemporary condition through the thoughts of intellectuals, critics and artists.
‘nel paese delle ultime cose’ | SUPERBLAST II is available, in a limited edition, in NERO‘s online shop.
