the first European festival on creativity

2016 Program

Event #30

Bruno Arpaia, Alessandro Zaccuri

The memory of space. The rubble of climate and rubbish in our homes

Like the rest of us, civilizations also leave a mark in the space they inhabit. The proportions change dramatically, yet there is no real difference between the rubble that a climate catastrophe may leave in its wake and the small domestic apocalypse witnessed by our rubbish bins. Remains and rubbish, trash and waste belong to a daily aspect of our existence, simultaneously testifying to a destruction that has already taken place and warning against a planetary cataclysm which may still be avoided. The topic will be tackled by Bruno Arpaia, who imagines a future in which Europe itself is consigned to desertification, and  Alessandro Zaccuri, who explores the narrative and artistic uses of rubbish.
