VEDI NAPOLI

This exhibition proposes to use the languages of contemporaneity to analyze the most stereotyped rhetoric about Naples. The goal is not to disrupt and deconstruct redundant signs and meanings that have become firmly established, in favor of images and ideas that are new, unusual, and perhaps even truer. On the contrary, the intention is to fully engage that code, taking it seriously as a machine for the production of functional forms and as a protective device against dysfunctional disorder. 
Matthias Schaller has looked for and portrayed some of the latest stereotypes of what it means to be Neapolitan: situations, monuments, personalities that are strongly representative of the city. He has always taken photographs, but here he has decided to photograph other photographs.
