La Mamma

Una mostra di Harald Szeemann mai realizzata

This short essay, based on archive documents, interviews and unpublished notes from the Szeemann archives in Locarno, analyses a series of exhibitions conceived by the Swiss curator Harald Szeemann in the 1970s and never staged. "La mamma", which is one of a series of three exhibitions (“Le macchine celibi”, “La mamma” and “Il sole”) was to be an interdisciplinary analysis of the family ideals that permeate our culture. For the innovative curator, remembered above all for the seminal exhibition "When Attitudes Become Form", it marked a withdrawal to a private, intimate sphere after a period marked by very violent professional clashes.  Rich in reflections drawn from various disciplines such as history of religion, visual arts, theosophy and feminism, “La Mamma” would have been a show without art, dedicated to a study of the female universe, the evolution of the mother figure, and the idea of female deity in general.
