Exhibit: Photographic Recall: Italian Rationalist Architecture In Contemporary German Art

Thursday, Feb. 21st - Friday, May. 10th

How do contemporary artists use photography to engage with Italian architecture of the Fascist era? What lures them today into the remains of this “Rationalist” style? Where is the tipping point between a self-proclaimed critical observation and complicity with Mussolini’s propaganda project of the 1920s-1940s? These and other questions occupy the minds of the seven artists in this exhibition. This is the first to showcase these mostly German photographers, independently all drawn to Italian Rationalist architecture and urban spaces.
