about.

STUDIO STEFANIA MISCETTI is proud to announce the show of a new unpublished Paolo Canevari’s video work titled Burning Mein Kampf. The work has been produced in 2008 and is a part of the biggest serie of Canevari’s “burning” works that he has started in 2004, burning, one after the others, the icons and symbols positives and negatives of our contemporary. From the skull to the Colosseum, from the gun to the tree till the guide book of Adolf Hitler’s politic program.

Burning Mein Kampf was shoot in an inside scene with a fixed shot, it shows a figure off putting a copy of the “Nazist bible”, the Mein Kampf of Adolf Hitler, on a gas cooker. The book slowly begins to burn so the copy was subjected to the same destiny in which more than million of art works and books, between 1933 and 1944, has been burned by the Nazi dictatorship, because they consider them “degenerates”.

Remembering renowned ancestors as Giordano Bruno and Savonarola till Francois Truffaut with his, Fahreinheit 451,in the famous shot of burned books, Canevari says: “the art should lead to thinking, reflecting on some aspects of reality often not perceived in their real nature.
