Exhibition Family matters in Florence, a snapshot of modern

The exhibition Family Matters in Florence is focused on one hand on the dynamics that characterize each family and on the other, on the image of the family itself and on what there is behind it. The exhibition presents the works of German photographer Thomas Struth, performativity portraits by Trish Morrissey, the projects realized via webcam by John Clang and portraits with LED lights by Jim Campbell. The exhibition Family Matters in Florence aims to unravel the dynamics and relationships among those who make up the family unit, an operation carried out by the visual narration and auditory of Ottonella Mocellin and Nicola Pellegrini and videos of Guy Ben-Ner and Hans Op de Beeck. The works by Nan Goldin and Sophie Calle pursue the objective to make people reflect on words like “father”, “mother”, “son”, while Chrischa Oswald and Courtney Kessel focus on mother-daughter relationships.

Exhibition Family matters in Florence, a post-modern discussion

The exhibition Family Matters in Florence makes us think about a concept as important as ever in this particular historical moment. Why is it interesting try to understand the role that the family still has and how it has changed today, that is to say, at a time when the confrontation-clash between the individualism of contemporary man and the sense of belonging to a community is strong and marked. An exhibition-event rich in topics for discussion, to live during your stay at the Brunelleschi, 4-star hotel located in the central Piazza Santa Elisabetta. Comfort and relax are key features of a property that offers comfortable rooms and suites, some with views over the famous Brunelleschi’s Dome.
