The Japanese House - Architettura e Vita dal 1945 a oggi
Between tradition and innovation the architecture of the Japanese house recounts an entire culture Co-organized by the Japan Foundation, Tokyo and MAXXI – the National Museum of 21st Century Arts, Rome, and coproduced by the Japan Foundation, MAXXI, Barbican Centre and the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, this exhibition describes the importance of house design in Japan through the work of archistars such as Kenzo Tange, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima and Shigeru Ban, as well as their masters less well known in the west such as Shirai, Shinohara, Sakamoto and extraordinarily promising youngsters. A combination of architectural tradition and innovation, of nature and artifice, ancient and technological advanced materials: the domestic space is the key to the entire metropolitan culture of contemporary Japan. The exhibition presents the essential aspects of the Japanese house, revealing the expressive richness of the designs and their capacity for creating an unexpected harmony between man, building and context. Drawings, models, period and contemporary photographs, videos, interviews, film clips, mangas and works by artists make up the exhibition along with full-size models of fragments and sections of particularly significant buildings, in an installation designed by Atelier Bow-Wow in collaboration with the museum. -------- On the occasion of the exhibition The Japanese House, , dedicated to tradition and innovation in the architecture of Japanese homes, the Archives Centre is hosting an investigation of the multiple and deep-rooted motivations that link the architect and designer Carlo Scarpa to Japan, to its architectural culture, its literature and its historical, cultural and constructional traditions. A story composed of projects, photographs and documents, many on show for the first time. A complex system of relationships, suggestions and studies that have over time linked Carlo Scarpa, a lover and connoisseur of the country from 1969, and Japan itself which held the architect in great esteem, in particular for his published materials. As well looking at which projects and in which forms Japan is to be found in Scarpa’s work, light is also shed on the episodes and factors that gave rise to this interesting system of relationships: papers, the architect’s personal library, critical fortunes in Japan and travel photos.

Sahara. Peter W. Häberlin. Fotografie 1949-1952
Some of Häberlin’s photographs were published posthumously in 1956 in the book Yallah, with a foreword by the American author Paul Bowles. One of the most famous American weekly magazines, The New Yorker, reported that it was the work “of one of the great photographers of our times, capable of showing, as only art can, what would otherwise have remained hidden”. Häberlin made his trans-Saharan reportage between 1949 and 1952: a vast series of photographs from four journeys, where he followed the ancient caravan routes from Algiers, crossing the Saharan desert until he reached the North of Cameroon. Shortly after returning from his last trip, Häberlin died in a tragic accident in 1953, in the midst of his preparations for a new voyage to Mexico. Häberlin’s biography still remains a mystery today. Although challenging, it was very exciting to retrace his existential and professional steps in order to outline his travels, acquaintances and worldviews. He was born in 1912 in the rural village of Oberaach in Switzerland (canton of Thurgau) and his wanderlust was undeniable from the very beginning. He seemed to have used photography to accompany his slow travels, always respecting his own time rather than that of our fast-paced world. The exhibition and the conference will be presented in collaboration with the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs in Switzerland, in order to promote a reflection on the immigration theme.

Contemporary Cluster #02 feat. Mustafa Sabbagh
Art is disease. An infecting virus, an injected scent, a short circuit generated by an electric chair, triggered by an erotic charge. Eros + Thanatos. Magnificat of a temporary paralysis: a cervical neck brace turns into a chrysalis. Vivifying electroshock of a symphony investigating a pain, composed by the Total Artist and remixed in an electro-dub groove. Dense, ancestral, like a wave-motion; because Art, the real one, means darkness. After the resounding success of his first anthological exhibition, which earned him the honorary citizenship of Palermo, and the triumph of the theatre play dedicated to him by the 30-year performative company NèonTeatro, Mustafa Sabbagh (Amman, 1961) chooses Rome - and the newborn intermedial Fluxhall of Contemporary Cluster, exhibition area elevating art and exalting its fetish - to consecrate Onore al Nero, photographic series that made him famous in the international contemporary art scenario, and to dig deeper into his Black, contaminating it with unedited artworks, ad hoc conceived for Cluster. In [contemporary cluster #02 feat. mustafa sabbagh], the artist combines the Demiurge’s visionary delirium to the Surgeon’s clinical rigour, within the perfect iconographic economy of a surprisingly, masterfully minimal post-Baroque. The only possible sense is the non-sense of obsession: morbidity of detail turns into mastery of each and every single creation’s phase, starting from the refined scenic backbone in whose composition Sabbagh is Maestro, to the ability to dive and make his own, through the artistic gesture that connotes him, unexplored or unspoken territories – like scent, jewel, furniture and sound design, in direct collaboration with excellences of each of the sectors concerned. Sabbagh does not shirk the challenge, primarily launched against himself, getting out as sure winner, fierce defeated. Wounded healer and healthy carrier. Just because art is nothing more than disease. Admission is restricted to members. You can request online Membership Club Card on site www.contemporarycluster.com/44/tesseramento-arci
