Afterimage. Images of conflict

Thomas Kilpper , War page, 2006
Curated by Valeria Mancinelli, Chiara Nuzzi and Stefania Rispoli, the exhibition explores the existing relationship between images and conflict in the contemporary era.
The English term “afterimage” describes that optical illusion by which an image continues to remain impressed in the mind even after the vision of the same has ceased.

The exhibition lays out the potential of the public display of the images and the persistence these have in the collective construction of reality. For images play a fundamental role in the description of contemporary scenarios, in the formation of individual or social ideas, and are used in different and apparently ever more free and autonomous ways.
From the much-discussed photographs by the father of modern photo-journalism, Robert Capa, to amateur shots which use the latest technology to reveal facts and events worldwide in real time, the exhibition aims to offer a moment of reflexion on the status and production of images of conflict. Through the work of very different artists in terms of culture and geography, Afterimage embraces a broad slice of time that stretches from the 1950s to the present day.
