Due cattivi maestri (Two bad teachers)

Print Email

The work is composed of two sound pieces split in two audio channels each.

In the right channel the public listens to a lecture by Michael Foucault in the first piece, and to a poem by Pier Paolo Pasolini in the second. In the left channel the public listens to readings of adverts published in gay magazines at their time: in “Lambda” for Italy (1978), and Gai Pied (1978) for France.

The lacking of a coming out of the two undisputed masters of the twentieth century states the nature of a 'double' between their sexual and emotional identity, and their public image and intellectual inquiries.

From here, one therefore concludes that both of them were two bad teachers: the use of dual audio channel is perfectly suitable to represent this ambivalence.
