Francesco Falciani is interested, as in his exhibition of 2015, in the exploration of some of the main modernist thought-patterns, that have their effect on us today.
The book tells about the story of a sailor who spends as a shipwrecked 28 years on an island. Robinson Crusoe, the first hero of the bourgeoisie of the early age of enlightenment, symbolizes the living myth of bourgeois self-made man, with the help of the virtues of order, discipline, reason, diligence, perseverance and piety, masters his fate. Defoe constructs the situation of the British colonists in North America. "Defeat the earth" Robinson Crusoe acts with this "God-given" motto and appropriates property and land, submit to a savage as a slave and call it "Friday".
Robinson Crusoe tells the story of colonialism and affirms the power of the puritanical, bourgeois ideal and reflects on the "masters position".
Even Karl Marx - one of Falciani's protagonists of the last exhibition - examined in Robinson Crusoe exemplarily the "homo economicus", which precedes the utility value in all life relations. For him everything becomes means of life support, of the natural fight for existence and the pleasant life-shaping in a frightening way without empathy at the expense of the others.
Francesco Falciani thinks through the cosmos of Robinson Crusoe and tries to translate his insights into the visual and visual.
