Denis Isaia, Tabula Rasa, Manifesta7, ExAlumix Bolzano, 2008.
We met him in Bolzano and we talked about the rest and its diverse reading, both a pause and waste, we also talked about abandoned industrial sites – the Alumix is undergoing a massive renovation project - and their place within the cultural debate in the region and in Bolzano. We talked about localism and internationalism, about Manifesta and its legacy – again cultural and political – in the area.
