H. said he loved us
Curator: Federica Chiocchetti
Realised in cooperation with the Photocaptionist and Discipula, London, the exhibition
is linked with the central theme of Photo Month 2014 through questions of historical
memory. Inspired by Corrado Alvaro’s Man is Strong, a novel that delves into social
relations within a dictatorship, Tommaso Tanini explores the common procedures through
which the one-time secret service of East Germany (the Stasi) manipulated emotions.
The disquieting, haunting question in Tanini’s photoworks is how can one possibly
turn against the loved ones instead of rebelling against an oppressing and terrorizing regime.
