LESSICO PER UN TEMPO A VENIRE
We can think of contemporaneity as a space that we must never stop looking for in the time we are living.
A space for which we are called to find new ways to inhabit it, words to describe it, visions to imagine it. A movement that, pushing us forward, challenges us to find keys to understand its darker aspects, but also its enormous potential.
The creation of new words for the future seemed to us a fruitful way of responding to this challenge, and maintaining the tension existing between the concept of contemporaneity and the present time through words capable not only of measuring time and the changes we are witnessing, but also of enabling us to move into new and uncharted territories.
The keywords explored in the videos below (in Italian) engage in a dialogue with the works of the Contemporanee/Contemporanei exhibition with the aim of recomposing the areas of light and shadow through which our experiences take shape. By redefining shapes and contrasts, these words allow us to get a glimpse of new possible geographies of what the world of tomorrow will be like.
Talks are conducted by Nicola Turrini, Research Fellow in Philosophy at the Department of Human Sciences.
