Giulia Brivio: taking care of (contemporary) art

17 November 2020

  “As the readership swells and the need for communicative art-writing skyrockets, we notice that – although some art-texts are well-informed, imaginatively written, and genuinely illuminating – much contemporary art-writing remains barely comprehensible”, writes Gilda Williams in first pages of his text How to write about contemporary art. It is not easy to talk about […]

When freedom to travel is only postponed

1 November 2020

Everything the books tell us: searching for inspiration with Stefania Ciocca.

17 October 2020

There are lives that seem made on purpose to become, without even the help of a bit of fiction, perfect plots for a book, a film, in short, a story to tell. Looking at them carefully, the life of each of us, even the most apparently boring one, if well scripted, could lend itself to […]

The fabolous ’90s, New York and the catwalks …

17 September 2020

words by @ale_theia Do you remember the nineties? Probably yes, and there is no need to dig too much into the memory, since recently the fashion of those years has become trendy again, not only rescued to put it on the catwalk, as always happens in the eternal cycle of trends that are repeated and […]

Photography as a search for happiness. Reflections on (of us, thanks to) Jacques Henri Lartigue

2 September 2020

Words by @ale_theia Dear traveller, why do we photograph?   To remember better, to find something or someone from the present in the near future, to collect or catalogue? Someone might answer: to share, to give, to make known and to tell. To inform, document a change. Or to not let go? To live a […]

Photography as a tool to rediscover and find oneself: Sofia Uslenghi

17 August 2020

For many of us, photography is above all memory, a way to find something of the past that has been lost in the meantime, that is now far away or that has simply changed. Photography also allows us to move in space, taking us to places where we experience nostalgia. Photography not only allows us […]

No compromises : the contrasts of Giorgio Galimberti, photomaker “In search for an Author”

18 July 2020

We inherit many of our characters and inclinations from our parents, as happens with physical appearance, height, certain details, from the shape of the nails of the hands and ears to the way we walk. Even the passions, with which we are often nourished as children, become legacies, and I always wonder if they are […]
