This exhibition is part the PhD project en PhD defence of Riccardo Giacconi.

Giacconi researches particular historical documents and, more specifically, explores their narrative potential. In his dissertation, Giacconi argues that in order to investigate their latent stories, documents need to be used in a specific way. This argumentation resonates in his artistic work through which he conceives an alternative mode of existence of documents.
