Reinventare il muro. Scena, cornice, schermo nello spazio pubblico a partire da Agnès Varda

Abstract

This paper deals with the “theoretical history” of the concept of wall – considered both as a place and as a scene – as proposed by Agnès Varda in Mur, murs (Id., 1981) and Visages, Villages (Faces, Places, 2017). In these films, walls are both surfaces of inscription of the stories binding the subjects to a certain place and frames in which everyone’s conducts become a spectacle addressed to anyone. This theoretical framework directly traceable in these works will be finally considered as a potential interpreting strategy of some practices in urban art (such as those of Blu and Bansky) that magnify aesthetical and political possibilities of the walls modelling the space of historical existence of a given community.
