Public Preview and Opening of the exhibition ‘Napoli Super Modern’ are official parts of the program of the Architekturwoche Basel (AWB) 2022
S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is showing the exhibition 'Napoli Super Modern' from 12 May to 21 August 2022. An exhibition by LAN and the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum with Cyrille Weiner and Bêka & Lemoine.
Everyone seems ‘to know’ Naples, even those who have never been there: its setting, its sounds, its people, its tastes, its informality and, not least, its stories, shaped by the fervour with which the inhabitants live this city. As numerous as these narratives are reproduced in literature, music, or film, countless stories about eras, styles, and uses also overlap in the city's architecture.
The exhibition ‘Napoli Super Modern’ is curated by LAN (Benoit Jallon und Umberto Napolitano) and by Andreas Kofler, S AM Swiss Architecture Museum.
The exhibition takes place under the patronage of the Italian Consulate in Basel.
