Product Description

Curated by Guliana Carbi Jesurun and Janka Vukmir
Texts by Hervé Joubert-Laurencin, Enrico Pitozzi, and Annalisa Sacchi

The volume was published for the Carloni-Franceschetti joint exhibition Esso: Shadows Oozing Gold, at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Zagreb, on display from the 27th of May to the 2nd of July 2022. The show’s title takes its name from a cycle of works that the two artists had been developing from 2017. This series investigates, through temporal short-circuits bridging current events with Italy’s collective memory, the various forms in which fascism takes root as a cultural model in differing social strata. The project relates fascist ideology to petroleum, taking its cue from Pasolini’s reflections on the topic in his last, posthumously published novel.

Adriatico Book Club is a group of people interested in making and sharing books. It has been founded in Venice during the late winter of 2020.
