Art and publicity: copying was never so easy… (in honor of Gillo Dorfles)
Video talk (in Italian)
Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020, 6:30 P.M. CET (GMT + 1)
Speaker: Alessandra Montalbetti
We miss Gillo Dorfles a lot, and most of all for his lucidity and his ironic reading of our Italian society, of us. In fact, some years ago the art critic, philosopher, painter and academic had already underscored that the most and the least efficacy of an ad lay in the ‘presence of a metaphorical visual-verbal element able to capture attention through images and the slogan that accompanies it.’ Just how many ad campaigns fish in the sea of the patrimony of well known and recognizable world art, if they don’t actually sack it? For example, from the close collaboration of Davide Campari (of the liquor company of the same name) and Fortunato De Pero to Nokia’s collaboration for the Sistine Chapel and that of Ferrarelle for the Mona Lisa, and even the re-telling of the history of art, today, by Lexus. We ask ourselves…but, then, what product will we buy?
