E-C-O-C-O-R-E is a bi-annual ecology xine.

ECOCORE aims to explore the camouflaged souls of ecology.

ECOCORE addresses the improper valuation given by hyper consumption to shared, finite, natural resources. Negative externalities born by public and subsidised lives are calling for a re-examination of the “good cause”.

ECOCORE recognises that ecology’s identity has been repressed or relegated to area’s where it ought not to be. Relying on prettiness as a tool to convey its’ ideas, ECOCORE strives to furtively edit ecology’s muddled identity and environmental awareness.

There are many new leading actors, decision makers, and partnerships that play increasingly important roles in what happens to the natural world. The proliferating complexity, immediacy, and ubiquity of environmental crises therefore demand novel and unusual human responses towards this new eco-governance.

ECOCORE is made by Alessandro Bava

Bramante is the most important architect in the history of Western architecture.
This fact alone would be a sufficient reason for this issue, but the additional fact that Bramante died 500 years ago merits its own celebration.

Most of all, now that globalization has come full circle and we live in an entirely unified market, we must address Bramante’s work as the foundation of universalism in Western architecture.

Follow Me is a book created for the exhibition by Susan Philipsz in the city of Genoa. Designed on the basis of a contemporary Baedeker, this book offers an original itinerary in the city, read through the work of the Scottish artist, invited by the Museum of Villa Croce in conceiving an exhibition inside the historic center of the city. The book is thus a city-guide that links different places and times, and that also moves from the habit of moving, investigated as a typical phenomenon of the Grand Tour – and that is the origin of the term “tourism”.

Susan Philipsz (Glasgow, 1965) won the prestigious Turner Prize in 2010 and has presented her installations in 2007 at Skulptur Projekte, Muenster, in 2012 at documenta13, Kassel and in 2015 at the Istanbul Biennial. Susan Philipsz has gained widespread recognition in the international artworld for the sharp execution of her works, unique in their genre, based on the rigorous analysis of the history, memory, and traditions of a specific place that she transposes into immaterial architectures creating an introspective environment for the “viewer”. The universal narrative of loss, hope, and homecoming is conveyed through the reproduction of tunes and melodies that, blending with the genius loci, generate a subjective storytelling.

Infinite Possibility 1974 – 2014
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian

Published on the occasion of the first museum survey of mirror works and drawings by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Qazvin, 1924), this book offers a critical and art historical view on a singular body of work produced over a career of more than 40 years.

Essays by curator Suzanne Cotter, cultural historian Shiva Balaghi, and art historian and critic Media Farzin examine Monir’s oeuvre and its development from the 1970s to the present in relation to the decorative and architectural traditions of Islamic art and the cosmopolitan contemporary art world of which she has always been a part. A detailed timeline situates the artist’s personal and artistic trajectory within the broader context of contemporaneous historical, social and cultural events worldwide.

Excavating the sky gathered architects, filmmakers, and activists from Syria and the Arab World with a series of events focused on Syria and the production of its contemporary landscape from before WWI till today. 
Its main focus was to present a “displaced pavilion” in Syria, a well recently dug in an undisclosed location in Syria currently providing water for a community of 15,000 people.
