This exhibition represents the beginning of a new path for M9 – Museum of the 20th Century. For the first time since its inauguration, indeed, M9 chooses contemporary art as atool to explore and interpret history.
The initiative aims to launch a cycle of biennial exhibitions, dedicated to some of the protagonists of the history of art, with relevant civil commitment, who have played the role of game changers for the world of art, thanks to their innovative contributions. Emilio Vedova is definitely one of them. His work is indeed interpreter and witness of our society.
Among others, some fundamental works of the Venetian painter will be exhibited, characterized precisely by the strong link with the dramatic events of his time, such as Diario partigiano, Diario di Corea, Praga 1968, Chi brucia un libro brucia un uomo, in addition to the great cycle …in continuum, compenetrazioni/traslati ’87/’88 and the seven multiples of the Absurdes Berliner Tagebuch ’64.
