“… This book is a testament against the immaculately quaffed cunts who live their lives on social media networks hoping to score big points because they manipulated the perfect lie via filters and apps, that ape artifice and exaggeration. It is a much needed example of the down and dirty, the all to real, the in your face – fuck you – to false standards of an unattainable beauty that is based on bullshit and deceit that dominates Western culture and acts as just another consumer con, preaching conformity and product placement as it tries desperately to erase the individual.” — Lydia Lunch

Atlas soccer is part of atlas, a collection of images taken from newspapers and gathered from 1990 to 2010 and later filed by subject. The material, exclusively in paper format, was found by chance and collected without a particular reason other than the compulsive attraction to the photographic image. It was only later, in the filing process, that it has found its current form, a sort of map of the author’s obsessions.
Atlas soccer is different from other, more uniform, collections in that inside the soccer world there are an infinite series of sub-categories that can be traced back to the actions and gestures taking place on the 90 minutes of the match. This chain of gestures opens to wider reflections on performance and production. Every gesture goes beyond its primary nature of spontaneous action and into the hybrid territory of representation. Soccer players, modern heroes relentlessly followed by camera lenses, give vent to their narration in a chain of poses that find their outlet in the image itself, displaying forms dripping with erotism and involuntary history of art. The match becomes synonym with the world; its gestures being its subjective variant.

Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968 presents the complex and ever-changing story of Italian fashion through a contemporary lens. It is a symphonic account of the many creative components that continue to interact and shape the success and enormous appeal of the “Made in Italy” brand. This catalog showcases the amazing garments chosen for the exhibition and designed by creators such as Simonetta, Valentino, Roberto Capucci, Irene Galitzine, among many others: the spectacular dresses that illuminated ball rooms and theater galas, as well as cocktail dresses of restrained elegance or tantalizing embellishments inspired by fantasized designs or the leading postwar art movements – the Zero Group, Pop art and Op art.

This book sets out to present photo portraits and life stories that conclude with recipe suggestions intended to inspire the reader. The book’s aim is achieved when – by cooking and eating the suggested dish – the reader ingests the Other in a unusual and unexpected ‘transubstantiation’. Strangers, usually just glimpsed, here become trusted ma.tres d’h.tel who – if they don’t poison you – give you the opportunity to look deeper into their worlds by telling you about their lives. Urban anthropophagy: allowing people to enter you through their food; letting them inside you by looking at them and listening to what they have to say. This book also offers itself up as an informal guide to London, where the city and its hustle and bustle stand in sharp relief to people’s memories. A guide where a suburban backstreet may be as meaningful as Big Ben in the quest to understand the city, and where the real difference lies in the people we meet and the tales they tell of this vast metropolis teeming with human life. It is a guide book that invites you to take wrong turnings and a cookbook that says it is okay to accept recipes from strangers.

This book is an unconventional autobiography. It retraces one year in the life of Rob Pruitt through the quotidian objects that the artist once loved, consumed, then felt he didn’t need anymore. An extension of the real-world flea markets, that he has been organizing since the early 1990’s, this particular collection of belongings sold on eBay from September 23 2013- September 23 2014 unearths precious fragments of Pruitt’s life while revealing his most material desires.

Future isTwelve Cities in Search of. Future is no Longer What it Used to be. Future is to Ask Yourself Where We Are Now. Future is an Utopian Vision, Future is also Back to Utopia: Future as Utopia. Future is Power, Power for a not Schedulable Life. Future as Practice. I Can Only Say One Thing About the Future: What I Wouldn’t Want it to be. Future is Visions, Visions of Future. Future is the Space of Expectations. Future is Architecture and Prophecy. Future is also Accidents: the City of Failure, Without Landscape; the Laboratory-City, Recycle and Repair. Future is the Hegemony of the Present: a New Aesthetic of Reality, the History of the Monkey and the Path. Future is Reform or Revolution? We Are Looking For Urban/Human Futures. But No More Alibis, please.

Future Utopia collects twenty-two definitions of the future. The definitions insist on what we will bring in the future: they show the details of today in which is hidden the time to come and reveal the utopia that will feed the cities that are now in search of a future.

Autors: Sara Marini, Mauro Berta, Alberto Bertagna, Renato Bocchi, Valeria Burgio, Giovanni Carli, Pietro del Soldà, Lorenzo Fabian, Antonella Gallo, Emanuele Garbin, Dario Gentili, Andrea Gritti, Fabrizia Ippolito, Luigi Latini, Giulia Menzietti, Valerio Paolo Mosco, Consuelo Nava, Rosario Pavia, Francesca Pignatelli, Chiara Rizzi, Daniele Ronsivalle, Massimo Rossetti

Krisis | Orientation è dedicato alla crisi dei modelli orientativi e al crescente senso di disorientamento. Da sempre l’uomo ha cercato di costruire un proprio orientamento all’interno del mondo che abita. La complessità della realtà e l’immensa quantità di stimoli a cui siamo sottoposti richiede una costante selezione di informazioni ritenute utili: la costruzione dell’orientamento è dunque un’attività principalmente eliminativa. Questa operazione di framing della complessità è stata veicolata nel tempo dal linguaggio lineare (sotto forma di narrazioni e miti), da sistemi di classificazione (prevalentemente di tipo tassonomico), da rappresentazioni grafiche (atlanti, guide e mappe), ecc. Nel corso degli ultimi decenni questi modelli sono entrati in crisi: il crollo delle grandi narrazioni preclude la costruzione di un immaginario collettivo condiviso, i sistemi di classificazione dinamica rendono obsoleti i modelli tassonomici, gli atlanti e le guide stanno lasciando il posto a sistemi di navigazione on demand.
La crisi dell’orientamento nasce dalla complessità delle correlazioni tra numerose emergenze diverse, il cui effetto più visibile è una complessiva tendenza alla frammentazione, alla individualizzazione, alla selezione, alla separazione, alla monetarizzazione del contesto sociale e ambientale. I paradigmi di orientamento diventano circoscritti, limitati, incapaci di costruire visioni ampie e condivise. L’accelerazione progressiva dei fenomeni limita la capacità di produrre orientamento dall’esperienza vissuta e accresce la necessità di informazioni e indicazioni provenienti dall’esterno.
In questo scenario diventa cruciale ripensare al disorientamento come un’esperienza che possa essere una fonte di rinnovamento per nuove pratiche d’orientamento.
