From March 2, 2022, the permanent projects of the Milan office of Fondazione Prada reopen to the public: “Process grotesque” by Thomas Demand, the intervention by Robert Gober, in dialogue with the works of Louise Bourgeois, and “Le Studio d’Orphée” , the atelier of Jean-Luc Godard. In addition, a study room will be inaugurated on the first floor of the Library building, a multifunctional space designed for young people and students and freely accessible to all visitors.
In this setting, the artist Andreas Slominski (Germany, 1959) created the site-specific intervention Die Geburt des Buches aus dem Geiste der Natur (The birth of the book from the spirit of nature). The installation is inspired by the architectural and cultural history of the place and alludes to the work of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche Die Geburt der Trag die aus dem Geiste der Musik (The birth of tragedy from the spirit of music), published in 1872. The Himmel sculptures (Cielo) and Erde (Terra) refer to the restoration and construction phase of the Foundation’s spaces completed between 2015 and 2018. Twelve paintings that give the title to the entire installation, on the other hand, constitute a symbolic path along the walls of the room . Made in styrodur, these works represent tree leaves and pages of books, recalling the process by which organic material is transformed into paper and the new identity of the space reserved for reading and study. The Library building also includes the Bar Luce, designed by director Wes Anderson, the bookshop and the children’s academy open every Saturday and Sunday.
On weekends, the Cinema presents a program consisting of two sections: “Origin”, films from the past and restorations and “Investigation”, first visions and experimental works. “Atlas”, a selection of works by contemporary artists relevant to the history of the Foundation, remains visible in the six exhibition floors of the Tower, where there is also a restaurant that offers an unexpected view over the city of Milan.
