The history of censorship and that of art go hand in hand. Various forms of censorship have been produced in every era: religious, political, philosophical, sporting…
Giacinto Di Pietroantonio will converse with artists who have been victims of censorship, such as Flavio Favelli and Nemanja Cvijanović, and with Marco Rubiola of Colors Magazine .
The title The sin of novelty refers to one of the most premeditated and organized forms of censorship, the directive issued by the Council of Trent, to indicate what artist could and – above all – could not do. Paradoxically, it seems that the only force that does not censor things is the market. So what better occasion to talk it over than an art fair like Artissima?
Speakers: Giacinto Di Pietrantonio (critic and curator, professor of History, Art Brera Academy of Fine Art), Flavio Favelli (artist), Nemanja Cvijanović (artist) and Marco Rubiola (editor in chief, Colors)
