The waves of contemporary hostility and a weaponised climate today leave us thirsty for a vocabulary that imagines new configurations, and activates a transformative and critical thinking. From the civil rights and women’s liberation movements art, as in images, as in language, as in forms, as in sounds, reveals ugly facts, raises awareness, and ignites united fronts.
Chronic Desire – Sete Cronică is a proposal for vocabularies of looking, feeling and writing, which can be useful instruments for reading the brutal present. This exhibition showcases art practices which can cut in and cut through history and address the current critical political and ecological moment.
Marinella Senatore‘s The Protest Forms series consists of five embroidered banners newly produced for the exhibition.
