“Everyone knows a different Munari,” reads the back cover of Codice ovvio, the collection published by Einaudi in 1971. And nothing could be more true: the diversity and originality of Bruno Munari’s artistic experimentation gave rise to a plethora of creative activities, ranging from drawings to designs, collages, paintings, sculptures, readable and not-so-readable books, new image reproduction techniques, industrial design, editorial graphics, architecture and new pedagogical ideas.
Faced with the impossible task of defining his work using mechanisms such as artistic trends and styles, the volume is structured as a journey through the “total art” of Bruno Munari: the result of an exploratory approach to his work that reveals the pleasure he took in communication, the rigour and simplicity of his forms, and his critical approach to artistic conventions.Text in Italian and English.
