Adam Chodzko speaks at MAXXI, 27 November

Exactly 20 years have passed since the artist Adam Chodzko explored the city of Rome during his BSR residency by following the traces of the children killed in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Salò (1975), the central theme of his subsequent installation ‘Reunion: Salò’ (1998).

Now Adam — a member of the BSR’s Faculty of the Fine Arts — returns to Rome to talk about where his work is heading in the present, considering the particular relationship this city can facilitate with the dimension of reality, the state of sleep, science fiction, super-social media, difficult thoughts and spiritual guides. And how playing with the ‘end of art’ could be the best or worst thing to do, under current circumstances.
