MATTEO PERETTI
L'Ironia del Sapere (Volume Due) / The  Irony of Knowledge (Volume Two)
Curated by Alfredo Cramerotti

PAN Museum, Palazzo delle Arti Napoli

 

The Irony of Knowledge is the title of the double solo retrospective show of artist Matteo Peretti, presented at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive di Spoleto and curated by Gianluca Marziani, from June 27th to September 27th 2015, and at PAN Museum, Palazzo delle Arti in Naples, from July 8th to July 30th 2015, curated by Alfredo Cramerotti.

The Irony of Knowledge is based on a cognitive process where different media interact in order to break the preexisting knowledge bases and attempt to create new knowledge in the context of the exhibition. The term 'Sociology of knowledge' lies in the title of this exhibition. Sociology of knowledge is the study of the relationship between human thought and the social context within which it arises, and of the effects prevailing ideas have on societies: it deals with broad fundamental questions about the extent and limits of social influences on individual’s lives and the social-cultural basics of our knowledge about the world.

One catalogue, in Italian and English, will gather the entire production of the artist, including the performative project Samarcanda, presented in Venice during the International Art Biennale of 2015. This book will be presented next Fall/Winter 2015/16 in some of the museums of the main Italian and European cities.
