Enzo MariFalce e Martello : The hammer and sickle
Falce e martello : tre dei modi con cui un artista può contribuire alla lotta di classe (“Hammer and Sickle: Three Ways an Artist Can Contribute to the Class Struggle”) by Enzo Mari is the small catalogue that accompanied his exhibition at Galleria Milano in 1973. Now the exhibition is being reproduced, with the same presentation and in the same historic gallery in Milan; the anastatic reprint of the catalogue is enriched with photographs and documents from the gallery’s archives and the Mari archive, as well as an essay by Bianca Trevisan that traces the planning itinerary undertaken by the artist-designer, and an essay by Riccardo Venturi that describes the historical, artistic and political debate in which the project is situated. A re-augmented facsimile of the Milanese designer’s emblematic exhibition, which is also a testimony to the socio-cultural context of Italy in the 1970s, and an approach to the designer’s pedagogy.
