Nearly a decade after the global Financial Crisis of 2007-08, a lingering economic crisis and its social fallout continue to shape our present. Ongoing debt restructuring policies and austerity measures, unemployment and growing precarity (also in the Humanities), and new political protest movements indicate a deep structural crisis of modernity’s predominant form of social life: capitalism.

Much has been said and written about Stanley Kubrick. But not everything. Nearly two decades on since the release of his posthumous final film, Eyes Wide Shut (1999), it is only now, with the donation of his archive to the University of Arts London in 2007, that we are beginning to have our eyes opened to new perspectives and understandings of Kubrick and his work.
The third annual exhibition at the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York (CIMA) is dedicated to the work of Giorgio Morandi (Bologna, 1890—1964). The exhibition includes some 40 paintings and works on paper ranging from 1916 to 1963, with a special focus on the 1930s, a decade in the artist’s production that is less known and studied for several reasons. Morandi’s painterly output in those years was limited, as printmaking became an integral part of his work following his appointment as professor of etching at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna in 1930.
