Event Description

With Paul Chan, Ninetto Davoli, Emi Fontana,
Barbara Hammer, Alfredo Jaar, Lovett/Codagnone,
and Fabio Mauri


On the occasion of the MoMA retrospective Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sunday Sessions presents a live program focusing on Pasolini as a poet, writer, activist, and public figure embedded in the collective consciousness of postwar Italy.

In 1975, just months before the director’s mysterious death, artist Fabio Mauri (b. Rome, 1926 –2009) created a work about Pasolini’s double role as artist and public personality. For Intellettuale, Mauri projected Pasolini’s The Gospel According to Matthew (1964) onto the director’s torso, turning him into a public screen. Using Mauri’s work as a starting point, contemporary artists present, perform, screen, and read material that reflect on Pasolini as an artist and intellectual who was deeply committed to social and political change.
