"Fabio Mauri", Fundación Proa. View of the exhibition
Fabio Mauri is the author of a unique and committed body of original work that cannot be categorized as part of any single movement. This exhibition brings together works that affirm the unclassifiable nature of his art as well as the wealth of aesthetic languages and resources he has used to explore political and social issues.
What is Fascism?, Jewish Female, Ideology and Nature, performances, and the striking The Western or the Wailing Wall give shape to a thoughtful and devastating vision. This exhibition evidences Mauri’s sharp criticism of totalitarian ideologies, the living traces of the Holocaust, and the widespread sense of mistrust and rejection in response to the consolidation of European systems.
As curator Giacinto Di Pietrantonio states: “Mauri’s art circulates in a linguistic terrain tainted by ideology. He attempts to disassemble the mechanisms of manipulation innate to any ideology.” As Mauri himself put it in the title of one of his books Language is war.
