closed Opening: Beauty and Terror

The event

Beauty and Terror: places of colonialism and fascism starts from Naples in the years around 1940 to present works of art based on research, which respond to little discussed events, architecture and archival materials. Underlining the geographical and temporal concomitance between stories rarely told together, the project explores - through the eyes of contemporary artists and critical thinkers - the history and contemporary legacy of the intertwined violence of colonialism and fascism, as well as the philosophical, aesthetic and iconographic that underlie both. A program of seminars, workshops and performances further expands the critical investigation of the exhibition project.

Beauty and Terror: Places of Colonialism and Fascism is created with the collaboration of the Goethe-Institut of Naples. The public program of the exhibition is organized with the participation of the Research Laboratory Center André Chastel (Sorbonne Université), Paris; of the Mostra d'Oltremare, Naples; of The Recovery Plan, Florence; of the Roman Villa, Florence.

Opening from 18:00 to 21:00
