Italo Zuffi 96-22
Covering Italo Zuffi's artistic research from 1996 to 2022, this monograph features a series of critical contributions in the form of conversations, a detailed selection of his artworks and a large biographical section accompanied by an anthology of texts that analytically retrace his career.
Edited by Caterina Molteni, the book marks the exhibition "Fronte e retro", curated by Lorenzo Balbi and Davide Ferri, taking place at MAMbo and Palazzo De’ Toschi in Bologna between January and May 2022.
"In a contemporary context where self-representation, the urge to position oneself, to communicate with the outside world and to define one’s identity is the individual’s primary concern, Italo Zuffi’s works lead us to reflect on the dynamics of self-determination, the accumulation of experiences and the possible redefinition of failures, absence and estrangement, providing us with new keys to understanding today’s world, which are in some ways antithetical to the accepted rituals and behaviours both inside and outside the world of contemporary art." — Lorenzo Balbi
