From September 21st 1888 to January 9th 1889 Friedrich Nietzsche lived in Turin. The “horse episode” marked the moment of his mental collapse. Nietzsche fainted in Piazza Carlo Alberto and was taken back to his room . Since then he started writing the so-called “notes to madness”. Inspired by this event Giulia Marchi structured the artistic project around this event to produce the final body of work. Danilo Montanari will be moderating the debate between the artist and the critic regarding the need to find a representation that take into account the complexity of unifying the multiple readings without losing sight of fragmentation within the work.
Lecturers: Danilo Montanari (editor), Lorenzo Balbi (director MAMbo Bologna), Giulia Marchi (artist)
