Federico Campagna: Recurring Dreams
Last time, it took him decades to be born. First it was the war, and
then, once it was over, it was debt, and all the ties that came with
it. It was the time of industrialization, the time of modernity, and
everything came in a mass scale. Mass impoverishment, mass
unemployment, hyper-inflation, hyper-populism. Nations were cracking

down after it, in the dozens, down from their skyscrapers and their
office blocks. The air became electric, squares filled up, trees
turned into banners and batons. It was the interwar period, and in the
depth of the social body, nazism was still hidden, liquid and growing,
quiet like a foetus.

le gusta el espectáculo? Es una pena, porque no se puede cambiar de
