PROGETTO GRAFICO n°

34

April / 2019

ISBN: 9771824130006


Leisure

The latest issue of Progetto grafico provides an interpretation of fun as the antithesis to work (dealt with in the previous issue) in a deliberately provocative way, aware of the problems of giving entertainment a sole definition. Often lying at the heart of economic and political decision, interpretation is of course unlimited.

Using images, we have accessed institutional – or institutionalized – worlds of counter-culture and mass communication, taking a look at the myriad ephemeral and homemade communication material used in disco and Gabber culture; the cloud of porn that generates new desire by representing the old; formats perpetuated by Italian TV of supposedly live dramas and comforting reassurances; pixelated milieus of video games capable of becoming instruments of protest, and the Las Vegas-like worlds of legalized gambling in paper form. We hope these will provide a less dogmatic way of understanding a design that does not provide answers but finds and creates opportunities to have fun and to entertain.
