Flashback is the project dedicated to art, conceived as an open artwork, born in 2013 with the aim of building an atlas of visual culture able to link culture and market into one equation, without constraints of space and time.
On the one side the name: flashback, the turmoil of the narration, through which the event moves the past into the present, on the other side the exhibition project: all art is contemporary which is inspired by Gino De Dominicis’ conceptual research on the theme of immortality and underlines the “contemporaneity” of the experience of when the artwork is enjoyed and its timelessness.
flashback was born for sharing a different idea about art history but also about today’s history; a more versatile and less severe approach that has allowed a larger crowd to enjoy the artworks,no longer perceived as distant – for cultural or time-related reasons – but finally part of a concreteexperience ‘here and now’. This syncretism is what has allowed flashback to grow exponentially during the years and it is what characterizes the project, which is born as a cultural challenge; an influx project which always is inspired by life while deeply connecting different time zones: the ancient,the modern and the contemporary with its making.
So, flashback provides tools of knowledge, to help us reconfigure our identity and build up thememory of who we have been and – mainly – of who we could be. Not an archeological search in our past, but the awareness of how much it is an integral part of our space of existence: the need to “use the existent”, of doing so that what is already present can represent an opportunity to set the bases of the future society.
