ESTETICA DELL’ APOCALISSE

Ph. Giorgio Benni

If we exclude the tragic consequences of the greatest natural disasters, both disturbing and spectacular images of tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, drought, etc. will be perceived as the result of a continual aesthetic practice applied by the apocalypse.
It is an aesthetic practice that is not afraid to confront art. On the contrary, it demonstrates that, although art is completely dependent on the relationship with mimesis, in this complex world one’s individual imagination can never be more spectacular than the real facts.
