THE EIGHTIES ISSUE
21 x 26 cm
Price: 70 lei
Every person is a memory. Memory which may be conjured up by joining the dots between what the subject has experienced over the years, starting from a personal history—which allows for a certain clinical-narrative accuracy—only to then go on to delve into the collective sphere, investigating and recounting private and institutional archives that accompany us through the presentation of the facts. Home to the facts are the eras: that's why over the following issues Archivio will identify four decade-long containers. This issue continues Archivio's journey back through the twentieth century, stopping this time on the fluorescently outgoing, yet such intimate years of the 1980s—so close and yetso far. Because "a day is a year is a lifetime", as the R.W. Fassbinder's biography italian title says.
