POST- (meaning “afterwards”) is a show of the survived humanity and its slow dehumanization happening through the so called “normalization process”, 

movement aimed to uniformity and flattening, that characterize social life.

Don't build the bomb. Be the bomb.

 

POST- is the future.

POST- is the time detracted from history. The time without imaginary.

POST- is a place detracted from action: the body observes, repeats mechanical

gestures, small movements.

Tic tac tic tac tic tac.

POST- is illusion of movement. Perfect stillness in which the feeling of movement

condenses in a few square meters.

POST- is a bit more than human, a bit less than machine.

POST- is absence of news prisoned in continuous change - everything seems to

change but is a program which repeats a loop.

POST-- is a loop. Some minutes long, some decades. The age of the world.

 

Year 2001 saw the Twin Towers falling down and the death Carlo Giuliani. The world´s face had changed, USA was at war again, in Italy the relationship between consent and dissent was deeply compromised. POST-  is a collection of images of the world from these events. POST- is an exhibition on the present and reconstructed view from the future.

POST-, meaning afterwards, is a collection of images of the world starting with theseevents, it is a show of the survived humanity and its slow dehumanization happening through the so called “normalization process”. POST- is a tank of suggestions gathered through workshops and site specific interventions. The work is collecting through this process performative materials which can be presented as unique part of composed in a long breath event. Each intervention is meant to be, in the first place, completely autonomous through the peculiar, again unique, relationship with the space.

POST- is the representation of the futile gesture of art to oppose the system in the system, but it is also the representation of art as only contact with freedom. Everything starts from the rubble and the cry of the world that has just accomplished. All that remains it's to listen to the silence ..

 

 

FRAGMENTS

POST- is composed by about 12 fragments which can be composed according to the structure of the performance space. The number of the fragments represente can be also adjusted: POST- looks never the same.

 

Don´t build the bomb. Be the bomb.
This fragment can be installed on a big surface, for example the facade of a building or be compressed on a stage. It is a movement composition where the bodies explore the status of being explosive.
 
 
A bit more than human, a bit less than machine
This fragment is what we call an “open system”. Taking inspiration by the Physics model we build an ordered series of actions which can be repeated as a loop. This schemes have the value of algorithms showing some aspects of the schizophrenia of the every day life: the sudden multiplication of the personal identities, the possibility to give a different interpretation to exactly identical images, the impossibility to act outside of the system itself.
 
The square
A research about the breaking point: an overstimulated system tend to explode. Two performer play a power game of an ambiguous meaning.
 
 
POST- Audio installation
It is used to connect the fragments between each other. A performer with the mask of a Panda bear guides the audience through the performance. The metaphor of the Panda bear is the one of the human kind being threatened by extinction.
 
The cry of the world
The performers, in a silent scream, give body to the “cry of the world” while we listen to the ground sound of the universe.
 
Gioia´s explosion
Interactive installation about the explosion as creative event. 
 
Photo installation

 

 
The loneliness of the every day life 
The actual show of the surviving human kind. Some performers show a hint of
humanity in the repetition of a personal gesture.
 
 
The triangle
Closed system. Two performers repeat a sequence of action up to the point in which
the composition itself explodes.
 
The list
Image of a street political demonstration, the list has been collected during the
performances of our previous production E.C.F.C. where we asked the audience to
answer the question: “What would you like to destroy?”.
 
Genua
Performative installation about the death of Carlo Giuliani.
 
 
Private is politic
Dialogue about the theme of political action.
 
 
ITALIAN VERSION
 
POST-, che significa ‘dopo’, è una mostra dell’umanità superstite e della sua lenta e continua disumanizzazione che avviene attraverso quelli che vengono chiamati “processi di normalizzazione”, movimenti volti all’omologazione e all’appiattimento, che caratterizzano la vita sociale. 
 
POST- è il futuro.
 
POST- è il tempo sottratto alla storia. Un tempo senza immaginario. 
POST- è un luogo sottratto all'azione, il corpo guarda, reitera gesti meccanici, piccoli spostamenti.
                
Tic tac tic tac tic tac. 
POST- è illusione di movimento. 
Nella totale staticità fisica, idea di grande mobilità condensata in pochi metri cubi. 
POST- è un po' più che umano, un po' meno che macchina. 

POST- è assenza di novità imprigionata in un continuo mutamento - tutto sembra cambiare ma è un canale televisivo che ripete un loop. 

POST- è un loop. Lungo qualche minuto, lungo qualche decennio. L'età del mondo.

 
Il 2001 ha visto crollare le Twin Towers e morire Carlo Giuliani. L’equilibrio mondiale è cambiato, l’America era di nuovo in guerra. Il rapporto interno all’Italia fra consenso e dissenso era stato definitivamente manomesso. POST- è una raccolta di immagini del mondo a partire da questi eventi. POST- è una mostra sul presente ricostruita e vista dal futuro.
 
POST- è la rappresentazione del gesto inutile dell'arte di contrapporsi al sistema nel sistema, ma è anche la rappresentazione dell'arte come unico contatto con la libertà. Tutto parte dalle macerie e dal grido del mondo che si è appena compiuto. 
 
Non resta che ascoltare il silenzio..

GERMAN VERSION
 
POST-, das heißt "nach", erzählt von den Überlebenden unserer Gesellschaft und ihrer langsam fortschreitenden Entmenschlichung, ausgelöst durch sogenannte "Normierungsprozesse", Prozesse, die Vereinheitlichung und Angleichung anstreben und unser soziales Leben kennzeichnen.
 
POST- ist die Zukunft. 
POST- ist die Zeit, die sich der Geschichte entzieht. Eine Zeit ohne Vorstellungswelt. 
POST- ist ein Ort, der sich der Handlung entzieht: Der Körper beobachtet, wiederholt mechanische Gesten, kleine Bewegungen.

Tic tac tic tac tic tac.
POST- ist Illusion der Bewegung. Vollständige Reglosigkeit, in der das Beweglichkeitsgefühl sich auf wenigen Quadratmetern verdichtet. 
POST- ist etwas mehr als Mensch, etwas weniger als Maschine.

POST- ist Abwesenheit von Neuem, in ständiger Veränderung gefangen - alles scheint sich zu ändern, aber es ist eine Fernsehsendung, die einen Loop wiederholt.
 
POST- ist ein Loop. Einige Minuten lang, einige Jahrzehnte lang. Das Alter der Welt. 
 
 
2001 hat man die Twin Tower einstürzen und Carlo Giulliani sterben sehen. Das Gleichgewicht der Welt hat sich verändert, Amerika befand sich erneut im Krieg. Innerhalb Italiens waren die bisher auf Kompromissbereitschaft beruhenden gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse vollständig zerstört. POST- ist eine Ansammlung von Bildern, die die Welt vom Zeitpunkt dieser Geschehnisse an zeigen. 
 
POST- ist ein Beispiel für den vergeblichen Versuch der Kunst, sich dem System im System selbst zu widersetzen, ebenso wird die Kunst als einzigartige Möglichkeit zur Befreiung offenbart. All das beginnt mit einem Haufen Schutt und einem Hilfeschrei der Welt, der soeben verklungen ist.
Es bleibt uns nichts anderes übrig, als in die Stille zu horchen..
