Booksigning: I don’t care (About Football) – Giulia Iacolutti + Marangoni 105

12 April 2023 @ 18:30 - 13 April 2023 @ 11:00

Wednesday April 12 _ 6.30 pm (+ Thursday, April 13 _ 11am)

Giulia Iacolutti will be at Micamera for the launch of her latest book, realized in collaboration with Marangoni 105:
I don’t care (About Football) (bruno, 2023)

Iacolutti will be in conversation with artist and activist Maddalena Fragnito, author of a text included in the publication.

 

 

I don’t care (About Football) is a participatory artistic project involving the players of the Marangoni 105 football team, created in 2011 as part of one of the rehabilitation residences of the Udine Mental Health Department managed by the Duemilauno Agenzia Sociale Cooperative.
The title, inspired by the words of a girl from the community, suggests how the game is not an end in itself but rather a practice of social inclusion and integration.
Marangoni 105 is made up of service users together with its operators and supporters. They all wear the number 14, that of the legendary Ajax player Johan Cruijff – one of the most emblematic proponents of total football.
Over three years of mutual understanding and hard work, workshops were held in which, through artistic-expressive practices, there was a choral reflection on mental discomfort and on the path undertaken over the course of the residence.

 

 

Football thus became a metaphor for such a path and an experience of treatment. Photographs, meetings, travel, training, stretching sessions, performance actions, interviews, writing exercises and collages are the actions that transform the art object into a place of dialogue, where it is the discovery of the other and the self that takes centre stage.
The process of analysis/self-analysis turns into a creative impetus via the appropriation and re-signification of images. Through the cut lines around the bodies, it thus becomes easier to investigate that ‘not’, that ‘not’ that gave the project its name, that difficulty which is such a common trait of existence yet to which it is very difficult to give voice, form and meaning.

Convinced that a paradigm shift is needed (also) in the art world, we will repeat the book launch also on Thursday morning at 11 am – for all those who can organise work but cannot leave their children alone at home in the evening. It will be an opportunity to gather ideas and proposals to start a participatory process of exchange and sharing.

After earning her MA in Arts Economics, Iacolutti studied photography and video at the Academy of Teatro alla Scala in Milan. She moved to Mexico in 2014, where she graduated in Photo-Narratives and New Media at the Fundación Pedro Meyer, lived and worked until 2018.
Over the past few years she has focused on her personal and participative art projects, exploring socio-political issues related to identity resistance and its struggles. In addition to photography, she employs different media and techniques (embroidery, drawing, text, audio and video) to enhance communication and understanding through different levels of perception. Her work Casa Azul was exhibited at PAC Museum in Milan in 2021/22
