FENDI Lays the Foundation Stone of FENDI Factory

Culture FENDI lays the foundation stone of FENDI Factory, its new pole of excellence located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in Bagno a Ripoli, close to Florence, highlighting the Maison’s continuous commitment towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility.     To mark the importance of this milestone for the Roman luxury house, Serge Brunschwig, Chairman and CEO, planted a tree on the construction site: a Turkey oak, a symbol across different cultures of virtus, dignity and courage. In particular, the Turkey oak tree plays a key role in the Fendi Factory project, celebrating the local biodiversity of the area.     Covering a land surface of 8 hectares, FENDI Factory, which has been designed by Milan-based architecture firm Piuarch, will occupy a 13,000-square-meter area formerly housing the Fornace Brunelleschi kiln. FENDI kicked off the works in the area in August 2018 to clear and prepare the construction site.     “Italy is synonymous with tradition, history, beauty and above all excellence. We embrace the opportunity to invest in the Made in Italy and to sublimate the core values of craftsmanship, artisanal savoir-faire and the power of handcrafting. Expertise and experimentation are all elements that support our marketing and company culture and at FENDI we believe that keeping and transmitting this level of tradition is fundamental for the coming generations. We are very proud of our roots, of this new chapter in Bagno a Ripoli, offering our teams a sustainable and caring working environment, “states Serge Brunschwig, FENDI Chairman and CEO.     Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, FENDI Factory will feature a series of buildings connected with squares and stairs that, located at different levels, will be harmoniously integrated into the natural conformation of the Tuscan hillside. With plenty of sunlight filtering through the large glass walls, the functional and efficient manufacturing plant will offer a healthy workplace, where artisans will be able to express their skills and creativity at their best. Designed to guarantee unparalleled efficiency, FENDI’s new plant, including a range of manufacturing areas, offices and warehouses, will feature rational spaces enabling an easy circulation of people and goods.   “The start of the works of the new FENDI Factory production facility in Bagno a Ripoli witnesses the importance of the development agreements promoted by the MiSE, which aims at supporting our companies in the process of technological transformation, while protecting both the skills of our workers and the reconversion of existing plants in the territories in which they are located”, states the Minister of Economic Development, Stefano Patuanelli. “Encouraging investments in training, research and development is in fact one of the pillars – adds Patuanelli – of the strategy that the MiSE is carrying out, also through the 4.0 Transition plan. Historic fashion brands like FENDI represent Italian excellence in the world. The contribution of this sector to economic growth and to the presence of Italy in international markets is strategic, just as it is fundamental to support the authenticity and craftsmanship of their productions. The challenge for our productive fabric is to combine Made in Italy with innovation, technology with digitalization, skilfully merging the old and the new know-how, ancient manual skills and 4.0 training, always with an attentive eye to environmental sustainability”, concludes the Minister.   “Our bond with FENDI is strong and rooted and we are proud to have co-financed the national program that today consolidates a historic brand, relaunches growth prospects and gives us the reconversion of an historical industrial site like the former Fornace Brunelleschi," declares Eugenio Giani, President of the Toscana region. “We are proud –of the development agreement that unblocked the Mise resources, focused on leather goods and on the use of innovative technologies, and that opens a season of new employment with the prospect of doubling jobs.”   “FENDI’s new site represents a news of absolute impact for the Metropolitan City of Florence and beyond, because it combines the recovery of the former Fornace Brunelleschi and the spaces of the area with technological and employment development, doubling, as a matter of fact, the number of employees. It is a great project that, on the other hand, finds support and further increase in expectation precisely because it can pride of operating in the ‘Greater Florance’”, says Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence.     “The start of the construction works of the new FENDI facility at Capannuccia is, today, a wave of hope for the future in such a complex moment,” asserts Francesco Casini, Mayor of Bagno a Ripoli. “It’s a new demonstration of how Bagno a Ripoli is a territory of opportunities for those who want to realize quality investments and of how in Florence and Tuscany one can do, and do well, with rapid and definite times, a virtuous collaboration between private and public sectors. Once again, with this intervention, the road to sustainable development is taken, allowing one of the leading groups in the fashion industry to have a new production plant immersed in the beauty of Chianti, looking to Florence, with a remarkable and very important impact on the economy and employment of the entire Tuscan and Florentine territory. And all of this without consuming a new soil, yet recovering an abandoned, degraded and squatted industrial site, that for a long time has represented an environmental emergency, thus transforming a critical problem into an extraordinary opportunity.”   In keeping with the Roman luxury house’s continuous commitment towards sustainability, FENDI Factory has complied so as to aiming at the prestigious LEED Platinum certification. Both the perimeter and interior walls will be made of glass, enabling the sunlight to filter and offering employees serene views of the Tuscan countryside and of the impeccably designed courtyards presenting local varieties of plants and flowers. Enabling the new FENDI site to blend in with the environment, the external walls of the different building will match glass with a natural mix of soil and concrete in a signature earthy tone reflecting the color shades of the Tuscan hillside and celebrating the ancient tradition of the site.   In addition, FENDI has created a public park in the same area, opposite the kindergarten, featuring playgrounds, wide benches and following the same approach of biodiversity of the FENDI Factory landscape, with native plant species and some areas dedicated to the growth of plants to have as natural an effect as possible.     FENDI Factory is set to inaugurate in 2022.

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women

On the Playlist Artipoppe releases a podcast series to inspire women to rethink their position and power in the world. In 2012 Anna van den Bogert founded Artipoppe, a Dutch babywearing brand. What started with a single baby carrier turned into much more. Not just a rapidly growing international business, but a way to connect with mothers worldwide and to give voice to an ongoing movement about how to create more space for mothers, for women, in today’s society. This is such a vast subject that Van den Bogert decided to create a podcast around it. In this series many inspirational thinkers are being interviewed about motherhood in general, but also about health, spirituality, fashion, social justice and how to save our planet for the future of our children. Our guests: co-founder of plant-based food program Sakara Life Danielle Duboise, member of the European parliament Samira Rafaela, healer Mama Medicine (Deborah Hanekamp), indigenous rights activist Nina Gualinga, food writer and entrepreneur Ella Mills (Deliciously Ella), birth doula Carson Meyer and many more.       In the first episode Van den Bogert will explain in detail what ‘The New Motherhood’ means to her. This is a term, a philosophy that Artipoppe’s founder has briefly touched on in interviews and on social media. In a nutshell, she believes that in our current patriarchal societies feminine energy and motherhood can oftentimes be smothered. Van den Bogert wants to make way for a world in which the mother, creator of all life, and families take center stage. Moving into a world, a future reality, that’s more about community, lifting each other up and really being connected. This extends to us being more connected to nature and therefore our human nature, listening to our instincts as people and parents.    Technically this would mean that mother and child, parent and child feel truly welcomed in all arenas of society. Whether taking a Zoom call, giving a lecture or attending a meeting with your baby in tow. New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who brought her child along in the first months after giving birth, is a huge inspiration to Van den Bogert. She would like to encourage women to trust themselves, trust their intuition, and to claim their space in society. Yet for that to unfold it should also become the status quo to see parent and child together anywhere in public. Also, when mothers bring a baby to a social gathering or breastfeed in public – without having to experience any social anxiety or fear of judgement. That’s where Van den Bogert would like to see a shift in consciousness. So mothers can feel empowered to walk their own path, to deeply connect to their babies and to express themselves for all that they are; a mother, a woman and so much more.    The New Motherhood is a holistic approach to motherhood and humanity as a whole. Motherhood touches all of our lives. So, in a way Artipoppe doesn’t just speak to mothers, fathers, but to everyone out there. It’s only together that we can achieve a brighter future with sustainability, inclusivity, connection and love as the norm.      Artipoppe’s products are made in Europe and delivered to over 70 countries worldwide. The brand is loved and worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Jude Law, Shay Mitchell and many more. The Artipoppe Podcast will be out on December 2nd, hosted by freelance journalist Kaira van Wijk.

In conversation with Kat Graham

Cinema ”Operation Christmas Drop” premiered a few days ago and it is one of Netflix's first holiday films of the season. The film follows a congressional aide,played by Kat Graham, on a mission to shut down the Christmas Drop missionon the island of Guam.     Kat, you've filmed ”Operation Christmas Drop” on the island of Guam. This is the first time ever that a film was shot at the fully functioning Air Force Base. How was this experience for you? What was the best part of shooting in Guam?   This was definitely the most fun I have ever had on a movie set. There were obviously challenges being that there was never a scripted film shot on the island before, but once we got past that, we were able to really enjoy how magical it was. The people were so kind and amazing. It was definitely intimidating shooting on a live Air Force Base, but the Air Force was incredibly helpful and supportive, and a couple of them even made cameos.     Operation Christmas Drop is an actual, real mission that the Air Force base does every year. This decades-old tradition sees gifts and supplies being parachuted to the residents of remote neighboring islands. How do you look at the humanitarian aspect of this operation and what does it mean to you?   I spend a lot of my time when I'm not on set focused on my humanitarian work with the UN refugee agency. It's a huge part of who I am and to be a part of a film where it was centered around a real life humanitarian mission, really brought it home for me. I've never been able to connect the two in my work like this before. The fact that we are raising so much awareness for what the Andersen Air Force Base does every year, means that even more people will get more support with better access to needed supplies.     Why do you recommend people to see the film and what do you believe should be it's message to everyone?   This is a feel good movie for everyone. This is not just a traditional holiday movie. This is not a snowy Christmas movie. This is not a traditional love story. This is a movie about people not being able to necessarily get home for the holidays. As we know from 2020, things can turn out differently than we all expect, but to find the magic, the beauty, the positivity in it, is what we should look towards having.     The holiday season in film and TV always brings joy to people with all the Christmas magic. This year especially, when the whole world is going through such crazy times, we need it. What are your hopes for the holiday season this year?   I hope that I'm able to bring people all over the world laughter and joy through this film. The fact that I can bring people together to watch this means so much to me. From my own holiday, I just want to be around my family and my animals. I can't wait to cook for everyone and play holiday music and dance around.     You are a big supporter of UNHCR – The UN refugee agency, as this is really close to your heart. What are your next projects as an advocate for UNHCR? What are the projects you would love to do as an advocate for human rights in the future?   I want to increasingly use my platform to give a voice to the voiceless. I want to help refugees tell their story in their own words so that everyone understands how similar we all are and only our circumstances are different. I hope that we can increase aid and an overall welcoming sentiment in the US and beyond. I'm working with UNHCR on some very interesting projects to shed light on this primordial human rights issue, which I'll be able to share more about in the coming months!     Before we know it, we'll already be in 2021. What can we expect from you next year in film and TV? And as well from your work in Modern Nirvana Wellness Group?   2021 is going to be very interesting because everything that I filmed up until this point came out this year. This year alone there were four films. Next year is going to be a lot of animation with the ninja turtles Netflix film, as well as trollstopia for Hulu. I'm looking forward to producing more and getting back on set and making more projects that are reflective of me as an artist.   In regards to Modern Nirvana, we are looking forward to our second annual conference and being able to have an event post Covid. We're going to continue to create really cool and enlightening content on our channel and bring together inspiring minds in the most impactful ways we can.       You can now stream the movie on Netflix. ”Operation Christmas Drop” premiered a few days ago and it is one of Netflix's first holiday films of the season.

As editor and artistic director Jan Králiĉek states in the Preface, “You will understand how and why the curves of a building are mirrored in a necklace, and how the detail of a mythical painting unfolds into the story of an iconic bracelet or how the dyadic character of a building can be reflected in something as intimate and subtle as a ring. ”This portable volume takes the reader on an unprecedented historical, artistic, and emotional tour of the city.

Food  An evening at Maita will give you an experience you want to repeat, a mix of a contemporary urban environment, spectacular service accompanied with great cuisine. The Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) cuisine is at the heart of the Maita expirience bringing new bold flavors to the Netherlands. Nikkei cuisine embraces eye catching colours & full bodied taste brought forth by our quality ingredients. In short Maita is all about quality, ingredients and flavours.     We had a pleasure speaking with the founders of the restaurant.     Tell our readers about your restaurant concept, being a Peruvian & Japanese inspired restaurant? And how did you decide to open it in Haarlem?   We call it Nikkei kitchen, because of Japanese immigrants living in Peru which represent 10% of the population in Peru, which are called the Nikkei people.  Cocina Nikkei it’s what we call it in Spanish as well.    We were always following the food trends in the world. Because there was no Peruvian or Peruvian-Japanese restaurant in The Netherlands at the time we decided to open the first one. Firstly we were exploring the option of opening it in Amsterdam, but then as that is already a saturated market with a lot of restaurants we though why not open it in Haarlem where people like to go out and eat as well as try new things, however we did not know much about Haarlem ourselves at first.   At first people were saying that such a high-end concept is not going to work in Haarlem and now we are fortunate enough to have people returning and becoming regular costumers, also customers coming from other cities to Haarlem just to come to Maita.      Tell us more about your menu and its amazing dishes.   All the dishes are designed for a shared dining experience. Starts with para picar (smaller bites), followed by a variety of traditional ceviches with very powerful and well spiced flavors. Ceviche is actually a national dish of Peru.   Following that we suggest ordering tiraditos, which is Japanese inspired Sashimi with tiger milk. Following that we offer a variety of sushi rolls including nigiri and uramaki with Peruvian touches including a Maita signature roll, which we highly recommend.  We also have a menu of signature cocktails to match with the dishes or you can go for a wine-paring as well as other soft drinks etc. Our popular signature ingredient is PISCO, therefore we call our bar PISCO BAR. The selection of warm dishes vary from beef, chicken, sea bass which is our best-seller and more incredible dishes. We also are proud of cooking our dishes on the Japanese barbeque: Robata  which is a big part of our concept. Lastly we also offer a  few sweets such as Matcha tiramisu and frozen coconut to name a few. Since recently we are also open on Mondays, when we offer a special Sushi based menu with 10 special sushi rolls and they call it Monday Sushi Madness.     "When entering the restaurant first thing you notice is the beautiful mix of colors that take you right away to Peru and Japan. You can also see the open kitchen which makes the experience ever more fun. We can easily say this is our favorite restaurant in Haarlem for the quality of the food, uniqueness of the menu and concept as well as their signature cocktails and beautifully designed restaurant.

TRIENNALE MILANO AND THE FONDATION CARTIER POUR L'ART CONTEMPORAIN INAUGURATE A CULTURAL PARTNERSHIP UNPRECEDENTED IN EUROPE

TRIENNALE MILANO AND THE FONDATION CARTIER POUR L'ART CONTEMPORAIN INAUGURATE A CULTURAL PARTNERSHIP UNPRECEDENTED IN EUROPE

Exhibition Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will join forces for a period of eight years to present a rich and shared program of exhibitions and live shows in Milan. To inaugurate this partnership, both institutions have chosen to present, from October 17, 2020 to February 7, 2021, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, dedicated to the extraordinary work of the Brazilian artist. Since the 1970s, she has been devoting her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups, who are now more than ever threatened by illegal gold minors and the Covid-19 pandemic. This landmark collaboration represents a new form of cultural partnership in Europe between public and private institutions.     A 1,300 m2 space within Triennale Milano will be devoted to the presentation of exhibitions conceived in close collaboration between the two institutions or inspired by the programming of the Fondation Cartier in Paris. Triennale Milano and Fondation Cartier share a common vision of contemporary artistic creation and are both dedicated to developing a resolutely multidisciplinary and international program open to all fields such as contemporary art, architecture, design, fashion, cinema, science and philosophy. Their shared commitment to current major environmental issues has led in 2019 to the presentation of The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause and United Visual Artists, featured in Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival at Triennale Milano, as part of the XXII International Exhibition. The Fondation Cartier has long had a close relationship with the Italian contemporary art scene, in particular with artists such as Alessandro Mendini, Enzo Mari, Andrea Branzi, Giuseppe Penone, and more recently Formafantasma. These encounters have given rise to major exhibitions introducing both Parisian and international audiences to the richness of their output. Many works by these exceptional creators are featured in the Fondation Cartier collection. Today more than ever, idea circulation, sharing experiences and, developing cultural networks between European institutions is vital in supporting artists, publicizing their works, and providing a meaningful perspective on the modern world. Within this spirit, Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier have joined forces to create new dialogues in support of contemporary creation and thought. This partnership will be inaugurated October 17, 2020 with the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, and will be followed in 2021 with Les Citoyens, Guillermo Kuitca on the collection of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Revealing unprecedented links between the works of the collection, the Argentinian artist takes us on a journey in which he addresses with multiple voices the ideas of ensembles and constellations, groups and individuals. The exhibition becomes a creation in its own right and offers an immersion into the world of Kuitca as well as each of the artists on display.   Triennale Milano: Triennale Milano is an international cultural institution that brings together all forms of art related to contemporary culture: design, architecture, visual arts, and performing arts. It is a place where art and design, creativity and technology, tradition and innovation meet. The institution, chaired by Stefano Boeri, exhibits works by major Italian and international architects, designers and artists. Exhibitions, encounters, conferences and performances punctuate its programming, and provoke reflection on the key problems of our society, which also occupy public debate. Triennale Milano has its own theatre, with international and multidisciplinary programming, and presents a collection of Italian design, as well as a library, archives and a conservation laboratory specializing in contemporary design. Every 3 years, the institution organizes the International Exhibition of Triennale Milano, one of the most important events devoted to design and architecture. The next edition will take place in 2022. On April 2019, Triennale Milano opened the Museo del Design Italiano inside its spaces, highlighting part of its permanent collection: nearly 1,600 pieces amongst the most iconic and representative works of Italian design. Triennale Milano is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan. Built in 1933 by architect Giovanni Muzio, it was designed as a flexible, modular space able to accommodate events as well as a museum, or theatrical performances.   Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris: Founded in 1984 by Cartier, the Fondation Cartier offers a unique creative setting for artists from around the world and for the dissemination of works to all audiences. Located in Paris in the iconic building constructed by architect Jean Nouvel and directed by Hervé Chandès, the Fondation Cartier opens its doors to themes rarely dealt with in museums, ranging from the environment to the social sciences and mathematics. It asserts an eclectic and multidisciplinary dimension crossing all areas of contemporary creation and spurring unexpected meetings between artists, scientists, philosophers, musicians and architects. From commissions to exhibitions, the Fondation Cartier supports artists over the long term and establishes a privileged relationship with them. From these exchanges, a unique collection has come to life and grown over time, today including more than 1,600 works by 400 artists of 50 different nationalities. The Fondation Cartier’s exhibitions and collection radiate all around the world: in Europe, especially through the partnership with Triennale Milano, and beyond, notably in China, where the Fondation Cartier maintains privileged links with Shanghai Power Station of Art.   Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle:   October 17 – February 7, 2021 Triennale Milano   Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain are pleased to present the largest exhibition to date dedicated to the work and activism of Brazilian artist Claudia Andujar. For over five decades, she devotes her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups. While their territory is more than ever threatened today by illegal gold mining aggravated by the propagation of Covid-19, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has taken on renewed relevance in the context of the humanitarian and environmental crisis exacerbated by the pandemic.   The exhibition: Based on four years of research in the photographer’s archive, this new exhibitioncurated by Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), will focus on her work from this period, bringing together over three hundred photographs, her audiovisual installation as well as a series of Yanomami drawings and a movie. The exhibition will explore Claudia Andujar’s extraordinary contribution to the art of photography as well as her major role as a human rights activist in the defense of the Yanomami. It is divided into two sections reflecting the dual nature of a career committed to both art and activism. The first section presents the photographs from her first seven years living with the Yanomami, showing how she grappled with the challenges of visually interpreting a complex culture. The second features the work she produced during her period of activism, when she began to use her photography as a tool among others for political change.   Claudia Andujar: Claudia Andujar was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1931 and currently lives and works in São Paulo. She grew up in Transylvania, which at the time had recently been incorporated to Romania after years of Hungarian domination. During World War II, Claudia’s father, a Hungarian Jew, was deported to Dachau where he was killed along with most of her paternal relatives. Claudia Andujar fled with her mother to Switzerland, immigrated first to the United States in 1946, then to Brazil in 1955 where she began a career as a photojournalist, before becoming an activist. I am connected to the indigenous, to the land, to the primary struggle. All of that moves me deeply. Everything seems essential. Perhaps I have always searched for the answer to the meaning of life in this essential core. I was driven there, to the Amazon jungle, for this reason. It was instinctive. I was looking to find myself.”Claudia Andujar   Interpreting Yanomami Culture: Claudia Andujar first met the Yanomami in 1971 while working on an article about the Amazon for Realidade magazine. Fascinated by the culture of this isolated community, she decided to embark on an in-depth photographic essay on their daily life after receiving a Guggenheim fellowship to support the project, and thanks to the presence of the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini in the region. From the very beginning, her approach differed greatly from the straightforward documentary style of her contemporaries. The photographs she made during this period show how she experimented with a variety of photographic techniques in an attempt to visually translate the shamanic culture of the Yanomami. Applying Vaseline to the lens of her camera, using flash devices, oil lamps, and infrared film, she created visual distortions, streaks of light, and saturated colors, imbuing her images with a feeling of the otherworldly. Claudia Andujar also developed a series of sober black and white portraits that capture the grace and dignity of the Yanomami. Focusing closely on faces and body fragments, she tightly frames her images, using a dramatic chiaroscuro to create a feeling of intimacy and draw attention to individual psychological states. Alongside the many photographs taken during this period, the exhibition will also present a selection of rare Yanomami drawings. After years photographing the Yanomami herself, Claudia Andujar felt it was important to provide them with the opportunity to represent their own conceptions of nature and the universe. She thus initiated a drawing project, equipping members of the community with markers and paper. A selection of these drawings representing Yanomami myths, rituals, and shamanic visions will be presented in the exhibition.   Political Activism:   By the late 1970s, Claudia Andujar had reached a turning point in her career. The construction of a transcontinental highway in the Amazon, initiated by Brazil’s military government, opened up the region to deforestation as well as invasive agricultural programs, bringing epidemics to the Yanomami and leading to the annihilation of entire communities. This situation reminded her of the genocide in Europe, and its impact on her was such that she decided to deepen her commitment to the Yanomami struggle. In 1978 she founded, with the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini and the French anthropologist Bruce Albert, the Commissão Pro-Yanomani (CCPY) and began with the Yanomami leader Davi Kopenawa fourteen-year-long campaign to designate their homeland. At this point in her career photography, she put her artistic project aside and used photography primarily as a means to raise awareness and support her cause. In the early 1980s, Claudia Andujar took a series of black and white portraits of the Yanomami as part of a vaccination campaign. They are wearing numbered labels to help identify them for their medical records. The artist was struck by how these labels recalled the numerical tattoos of those “branded for death” during the Holocaust. She later revisited these portraits and created the Marcados series, which reveal the ambiguity inherent in this act of labeling even if it is ultimately for their survival. In the exhibition, we will present previously unseen photographs from this series.   Curator: Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), assisted by Valentina Tong. This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and is supported by the Hutukara Associação Yanomami (Boa Vista) and the Instituto Socioambiental (São Paulo and Boa Vista).   Exhibition catalogue: The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in French, English, and Italian, presenting the artist’s photographs as well as excerpts from her notebooks and Yanomami drawings. With texts by Claudia Andujar, Thyago Nogueira, and Bruce Albert, it will feature a map of Yanomami territory as well as a timeline documenting the artist’s life and the history of the Yanomami people.   The exhibition's future venues: The exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has been presented in 2019 at the Instituto Moreira Salles (Brazil) and in 2020 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Paris). After its presentation at Triennale Milano, it will travel in 2021 to Fundación MAPFRE (Barcelona) and in 2022 to the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland).   The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has supported the Yanomami cause and the work of Claudia Andujar for over twenty years. Claudia Andujar and Yanomami artists such as Taniki, Joseca, Ehuana, and Kalepi have participated in several exhibitions and are amongst the artists present in our collection. The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented her work for the first time in 2003 in the exhibition Yanomami, Spirit of the Forest. Claudia Andujar renewed her collaboration with the Fondation Cartier in 2012 with the exhibition Histoires de voir: Show and Tell, in which she presented the work of Taniki, the first Yanomami artist to work on paper. In 2013, she participated in the exhibition América Latina, 1960-2013with Marcados, a moving series of id photographs she took during a vaccination campaign she led between 1981 and 1983 throughout Yanomami territory. Thanks to this exhibition dedicated to the work of Claudia Andujar, Triennale Milano has joined forces with the Fondation Cartier through its commitment to the Yanomami and hopes to bring the history, struggles, and daily life of these people to the attention of the Italian public.   For many years, the Fondation Cartier has explored the major issues of our times, including the environment, climate change, the destruction of the animal and plant world, deforestation, and the disappearance of indigenous populations and cultures. Accompanied by artists, intellectuals, and scientists, the Fondation Cartier addresses these issues in exhibitions presented in Paris or in cultural institutions around the world.   Triennale Milano has devoted numerous projects to some of the key themes of contemporary society, such as the relationship between humans and nature, the environment and urban life. The XXII International Exhibition of Triennale MilanoBroken Nature: Design Takes on Humans Survival (March 1 - September 1, 2019) opened up a space for critical reflection on the present and future of our planet. The seminars in preparation for the XXIII edition of the International Exhibition, to be held in 2022, and the support for urban forestry activities are an example of Triennale Milano’s dedication and commitment to these urgent concerns of our times. Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will join forces for a period of eight years to present a rich and shared program of exhibitions and live shows in Milan. To inaugurate this partnership, both institutions have chosen to present, from October 17, 2020 to February 7, 2021, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, dedicated to the extraordinary work of the Brazilian artist. Since the 1970s, she has been devoting her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups, who are now more than ever threatened by illegal gold minors and the Covid-19 pandemic. This landmark collaboration represents a new form of cultural partnership in Europe between public and private institutions.     A 1,300 m2 space within Triennale Milano will be devoted to the presentation of exhibitions conceived in close collaboration between the two institutions or inspired by the programming of the Fondation Cartier in Paris. Triennale Milano and Fondation Cartier share a common vision of contemporary artistic creation and are both dedicated to developing a resolutely multidisciplinary and international program open to all fields such as contemporary art, architecture, design, fashion, cinema, science and philosophy. Their shared commitment to current major environmental issues has led in 2019 to the presentation of The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause and United Visual Artists, featured in Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival at Triennale Milano, as part of the XXII International Exhibition. The Fondation Cartier has long had a close relationship with the Italian contemporary art scene, in particular with artists such as Alessandro Mendini, Enzo Mari, Andrea Branzi, Giuseppe Penone, and more recently Formafantasma. These encounters have given rise to major exhibitions introducing both Parisian and international audiences to the richness of their output. Many works by these exceptional creators are featured in the Fondation Cartier collection. Today more than ever, idea circulation, sharing experiences and, developing cultural networks between European institutions is vital in supporting artists, publicizing their works, and providing a meaningful perspective on the modern world. Within this spirit, Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier have joined forces to create new dialogues in support of contemporary creation and thought. This partnership will be inaugurated October 17, 2020 with the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle, and will be followed in 2021 with Les Citoyens, Guillermo Kuitca on the collection of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Revealing unprecedented links between the works of the collection, the Argentinian artist takes us on a journey in which he addresses with multiple voices the ideas of ensembles and constellations, groups and individuals. The exhibition becomes a creation in its own right and offers an immersion into the world of Kuitca as well as each of the artists on display.   Triennale Milano: Triennale Milano is an international cultural institution that brings together all forms of art related to contemporary culture: design, architecture, visual arts, and performing arts. It is a place where art and design, creativity and technology, tradition and innovation meet. The institution, chaired by Stefano Boeri, exhibits works by major Italian and international architects, designers and artists. Exhibitions, encounters, conferences and performances punctuate its programming, and provoke reflection on the key problems of our society, which also occupy public debate. Triennale Milano has its own theatre, with international and multidisciplinary programming, and presents a collection of Italian design, as well as a library, archives and a conservation laboratory specializing in contemporary design. Every 3 years, the institution organizes the International Exhibition of Triennale Milano, one of the most important events devoted to design and architecture. The next edition will take place in 2022. On April 2019, Triennale Milano opened the Museo del Design Italiano inside its spaces, highlighting part of its permanent collection: nearly 1,600 pieces amongst the most iconic and representative works of Italian design. Triennale Milano is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan. Built in 1933 by architect Giovanni Muzio, it was designed as a flexible, modular space able to accommodate events as well as a museum, or theatrical performances.   Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris: Founded in 1984 by Cartier, the Fondation Cartier offers a unique creative setting for artists from around the world and for the dissemination of works to all audiences. Located in Paris in the iconic building constructed by architect Jean Nouvel and directed by Hervé Chandès, the Fondation Cartier opens its doors to themes rarely dealt with in museums, ranging from the environment to the social sciences and mathematics. It asserts an eclectic and multidisciplinary dimension crossing all areas of contemporary creation and spurring unexpected meetings between artists, scientists, philosophers, musicians and architects. From commissions to exhibitions, the Fondation Cartier supports artists over the long term and establishes a privileged relationship with them. From these exchanges, a unique collection has come to life and grown over time, today including more than 1,600 works by 400 artists of 50 different nationalities. The Fondation Cartier’s exhibitions and collection radiate all around the world: in Europe, especially through the partnership with Triennale Milano, and beyond, notably in China, where the Fondation Cartier maintains privileged links with Shanghai Power Station of Art.   Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle:   October 17 – February 7, 2021 Triennale Milano   Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain are pleased to present the largest exhibition to date dedicated to the work and activism of Brazilian artist Claudia Andujar. For over five decades, she devotes her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous groups. While their territory is more than ever threatened today by illegal gold mining aggravated by the propagation of Covid-19, the exhibition Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle has taken on renewed relevance in the context of the humanitarian and environmental crisis exacerbated by the pandemic.   The exhibition: Based on four years of research in the photographer’s archive, this new exhibitioncurated by Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), will focus on her work from this period, bringing together over three hundred photographs, her audiovisual installation as well as a series of Yanomami drawings and a movie. The exhibition will explore Claudia Andujar’s extraordinary contribution to the art of photography as well as her major role as a human rights activist in the defense of the Yanomami. It is divided into two sections reflecting the dual nature of a career committed to both art and activism. The first section presents the photographs from her first seven years living with the Yanomami, showing how she grappled with the challenges of visually interpreting a complex culture. The second features the work she produced during her period of activism, when she began to use her photography as a tool among others for political change.   Claudia Andujar: Claudia Andujar was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1931 and currently lives and works in São Paulo. She grew up in Transylvania, which at the time had recently been incorporated to Romania after years of Hungarian domination. During World War II, Claudia’s father, a Hungarian Jew, was deported to Dachau where he was killed along with most of her paternal relatives. Claudia Andujar fled with her mother to Switzerland, immigrated first to the United States in 1946, then to Brazil in 1955 where she began a career as a photojournalist, before becoming an activist. I am connected to the indigenous, to the land, to the primary struggle. All of that moves me deeply. Everything seems essential. Perhaps I have always searched for the answer to the meaning of life in this essential core. I was driven there, to the Amazon jungle, for this reason. It was instinctive. I was looking to find myself.”Claudia Andujar   Interpreting Yanomami Culture: Claudia Andujar first met the Yanomami in 1971 while working on an article about the Amazon for Realidade magazine. Fascinated by the culture of this isolated community, she decided to embark on an in-depth photographic essay on their daily life after receiving a Guggenheim fellowship to support the project, and thanks to the presence of the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini in the region. From the very beginning, her approach differed greatly from the straightforward documentary style of her contemporaries. The photographs she made during this period show how she experimented with a variety of photographic techniques in an attempt to visually translate the shamanic culture of the Yanomami. Applying Vaseline to the lens of her camera, using flash devices, oil lamps, and infrared film, she created visual distortions, streaks of light, and saturated colors, imbuing her images with a feeling of the otherworldly. Claudia Andujar also developed a series of sober black and white portraits that capture the grace and dignity of the Yanomami. Focusing closely on faces and body fragments, she tightly frames her images, using a dramatic chiaroscuro to create a feeling of intimacy and draw attention to individual psychological states. Alongside the many photographs taken during this period, the exhibition will also present a selection of rare Yanomami drawings. After years photographing the Yanomami herself, Claudia Andujar felt it was important to provide them with the opportunity to represent their own conceptions of nature and the universe. She thus initiated a drawing project, equipping members of the community with markers and paper. A selection of these drawings representing Yanomami myths, rituals, and shamanic visions will be presented in the exhibition.   Political Activism:   By the late 1970s, Claudia Andujar had reached a turning point in her career. The construction of a transcontinental highway in the Amazon, initiated by Brazil’s military government, opened up the region to deforestation as well as invasive agricultural programs, bringing epidemics to the Yanomami and leading to the annihilation of entire communities. This situation reminded her of the genocide in Europe, and its impact on her was such that she decided to deepen her commitment to the Yanomami struggle. In 1978 she founded, with the Italian missionary Carlo Zacquini and the French anthropologist Bruce Albert, the Commissão Pro-Yanomani (CCPY) and began with the Yanomami leader Davi Kopenawa fourteen-year-long campaign to designate their homeland. At this point in her career photography, she put her artistic project aside and used photography primarily as a means to raise awareness and support her cause. In the early 1980s, Claudia Andujar took a series of black and white portraits of the Yanomami as part of a vaccination campaign. They are wearing numbered labels to help identify them for their medical records. The artist was struck by how these labels recalled the numerical tattoos of those “branded for death” during the Holocaust. She later revisited these portraits and created the Marcados series, which reveal the ambiguity inherent in this act of labeling even if it is ultimately for their survival. In the exhibition, we will present previously unseen photographs from this series.   Curator: Thyago Nogueira (head of the contemporary photography department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil), assisted by Valentina Tong.
