Bugie bianche (White Lies)
Original idea and director: Alessandro Berti
Historical research: Gianluca Gabrielli, Juliet Rogers
Iconographic consultant: Daniela Neri
Poetic, sarcastic, politically incorrect, Alessandro Berti’s show is a pastiche of interracial concepts linked to the body of the black male seen through the eyes of the white male, based on historical, literary and iconographic sources. An investigation that is as timely as it is contemporary and necessary, which reveals the tangled fear/desire towards another and evokes the ghosts of Western civilization.
