This publication documents the exhibition «Stefano Serafin: Art in a State of War», curated by Paula Pinto, which was on view at the Galeria Av. Da Índia between 8 March and 12 May 2020. Stefano Serafin: Art in a state of War features reproductions of the artists work alongside essays by the curator and Tobi Maier.
“Always provocative, Stefano Serafin’s images expose histories that museums have preferred to silence: war, destruction and political and cultural neglect. As artistic heritage is recovered, documentary photographs – conveniently used as a means of definitive preservation – come to reveal the process by which that heritage is transformed and acknowledge the displacement of cultural value in different contexts and periods of time.”
– Paula Pinto, curator
