Fabio Mauri (Rome, 1926 – Rome, 2009) was an italian artist, writer and dramatist. He was one of the main italian avantgarde artist of the post Second World War period. He was invited in the Biennale di Venezia for 5 editions of the art exhibition. His works are still exhibited in museums, galleries and exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
The photolithography presented is part of the book "Manipolazioni di Cultura", in which images, previously manipulated by nazism and fascism, are now edited by the artist. Thanks to photographic adjustment and comments in italian and german, the sense of the image is overturn or amplified, even thanks to simple and descriptive titles, always referring to the politic power.

About Fabio Mauri
Fabio Mauri became one of the best-known post-war Italian artists for his exploration of many mediums, particularly his film and performance works. Mauri began his career making gestural paintings and drawings, but these fell to the wayside as Mauri’s interest in moving images grew. He became most fascinated with film, drawing from both personal and documentary materials. The projected image onto a surface became a central motif and a device for bridging several moments in time. Beginning in the 1950s, Mauri created a series for which he is now best known, comprised of “Schermi” (or “Screens”). As he described, “even before starting a movie, the screen was for me a sort of absorbent paper. It would give us a reality that had already been judged.”
