Panorama is a deconstructed anthology. Exploded into little pieces. Francesco Jodice’s whole career is examined through an intricate web of images and text. In no particular order. Combining the works with the material that went into their making: photos, maps, diagrams, films, newspaper cuttings, backstage footage, screen tests, writing… Taking a metabolic approach, Panorama explores an entire universe of authorship, raising questions that spill over from art into the realms of politics, philosophy, anthropology, urban planning, and geography. The book appears in conjunction with the exhibition “Francesco Jodice—Panorama”, Fotomuseum Winterthur (11 February—7 May 2017).
