Item description for The Aesthetics of Resistance: Searching for Gramsci by Alfredo Jaar...

Artist Alfredo Jaar creates a series of works directly related to the city of Como, Italy. As a visiting professor for the Advanced Course in Visual Arts in Como, Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar developed a workshop and exhibition project exploring new strategies of presentation and re-presentation in the hope of creating new models for public intervention and resistance. Jaar proposed a series of works inspired by Giuseppe Terragni's Casa del Fascio, one of the most iconic examples of modern architecture and the symbol of a crucial historical period. This book documents Aesthetics of Resistance and Trilogia di Gramsci, a recently published corpus of works dedicated to the Italian political theorist Antonio Gramsci. The volume includes texts by Alfredo Jaar, Emanuela De Cecco, Roberto Pinto, Annie Ratti and Gianni Vattimo.
