Bertille Bak : La giostra del reale at MAXXI Museum, Rome, Italy

Usine à divertissement

The exhibition at the MAXXI museum titled “La giostra del reale” will present more than fifteen films made by Bertille Bak between 2007 and 2022. This large panorama of her work will narrate her unique vision and her expressive research staggered along the boundaries between art, politics and sociology.

From contemporary fairy tales, tragic but also charged with hope and irony inspired by the personal experience of the artist, descended from a family of miners – T’as de beaux vieux, tu sais . . . (2007) and Tu redeviendras poussière (2017) – through the daily struggle of those defending their cultural roots and home – Faire le mur (2008), Safeguard emergency light system (2010), Transports à dos d’hommes (2012), as well as faceless and dignified workers – Le Tour de Babel (2014), Boussa from The Netherlands 1/3 (2017), La brigada (2018) – to children deprived of childhood – Bleus de travail (2020) and the most recent one – Mineur Mineur (2022).
