Art in the time of COVID-19

An important interview - reflection with the number one of the Italian gallery owners.

At a time when the essential eschews the superfluous, the world of contemporary art, pervaded by an anxiety of continuous performance, reveals all its fragility.

Massimo De Carlo identifies the malaise of the world of art and of our society in general, pervaded by a continuous performative anxiety destined to create havoc, in the incessant race for better performance, greater visibility and greater profit.

The recipe for surviving right now? Resist and keep going with your head down without ever stopping to rediscover the essentials and resistance to difficulties that the generation most affected by this health emergency has taught us.
