WALK WITH PAOLO BARLASCINI: HUNTING (SPACES) WITH DADA. Berlin 20 October 2012. Picture by Emanuele Guidi.
“The spaces are those of Berlin, obviously. Less obvious is which ones they exactly are. And, most importantly, why their influence is so heavy on us, despite of being so subtle. Dada is a dog. A little curious dog. We won´t follow her hunting rabbits through Tiergarten, but we´ll try explore some corners of the city with the same spirit of joyious excitement. And, if we are good enough, we’ll be surprised. Join me (and Dada) for a Walk through some of the architecture that at first glance we wouldn´t notice and yet has great potential in the way it affects us and the society we live in. And when l say architecture, I do not necessarly think of buildings, but space in general, with its fascinating dynamics. The explorer is someone who launches himself into the discovery of something, with a particular drive, a certain physical need for curiosity and challenge. He looks for our limits and for what surrounds us. I’m fascinated by this distinction as an allegory to the approach to painting. Just like the detective role: both have something to do with the search for answers, and with a strong passion for the method.” Paolo Barlascini.
