"The last and definitive book on my research."
The first retrospective monograph on Mimmo Jodice’s work (Naples, 1934), destined to become the reference publication on the master’s photographic research.
The project developed from Attesa 1960-2016, the largest anthological exhibition devoted to Mimmo Jodice, held at the Museo Madre in Naples from June 24 to October 24, 2016 and curated by Andrea Viliani. The exhibition, designed by the artist himself, presented the public with more than 100 works divided into different sections connected to each other, evoking a circular time, cyclically returning on itself and its inspirational motifs.
The volume, which preserves the spirit and the message of that exhibition, contains an updated scholarly apparatus and original essays by internationally renowned scholars. The texts by Salvatore Settis, Ester Coen, Nicola Spinosa, Marta Gili and Tina Kukielski investigate the various disciplinary aspects of the artist’s research. A long interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Mimmo Jodice and the in-depth articles by Andrea Viliani complete the list of previously unpublished contributions.
The monograph is very richly illustrated, with over 350 photographs, personally selected by Jodice, a rich and important selection of documents, some previously unpublished, and a series of views of the exhibition at the Madre and the main previous personal exhibitions.
The volume (Italian/English) has been designed by Lefloft graphic studio.
