On the occasion of Manifesta 2018, Teatro Massimo di Palermo hosts Aes + F Mare Mediterraneum, an exhibition promoted by the Multimedia Art Museum of Moscow. The Mediterranean Sea is an epicenter of contradictions; point of arrival for the Phoenicians and Carthaginians in ancient times. Today is a symbol of salvation for migrants and refugees. The recent waves of migration have put Europe in the face of a crucial dilemma: accepting refugees - allowing them to come at the expense of the material and psychological comfort of their guests - or rejecting them. Addressing the issue is not easy, this exhibition tries to do it in a countercurrent way, through porcelain figurines. An artistic image far more radical than reality itself.
