Francesco Urbano Ragazzi

Kenneth Goldsmith’s Hillary


At 10am on 10 September 2019, Hillary Clinton made a visit to the iconic Venetian Teatro Italia. The balcony of this former movie theatre – which in 2016 became a supermarket – has been transformed into an exhibition space. Here Kenneth Goldsmith printed out all 62,000 pages of Clinton’s emails at the center of a violent political debate between 2015 and 2016. They still are the most controversial and important political documents in recent history. The duo Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, who curated Goldsmith’s exhibition, operates on the press review generated by the event, transforming it into an automatic poem.
