Collectivity and Individuality in Modern Italian Art and Cultural Production (1860 – Present)

This panel seeks to understand how modern Italy’s cultural production addressed notions of collectivity and individuality during an epoch that witnessed efforts of national cohesion (Risorgimento, Fascism, Resistance) and increasing social isolation and fracture (1968, the Years of Lead, the rise of globalization). Alongside the emergence of various artistic groups (historical avant-garde, neo-avantgarde and other postwar collectives), individual practitioners addressed the subjective impact of these socio-historical developments. Employing a capacious perspective, we ask how artists, critics, photographers, curators, and filmmakers have parsed the mutable, historically contingent relations between the singular and the potential collective subject throughout this period.
