DUST Magazine presents "Padri / Figli" (Fathers / Sons), a diptych by the Dutch duo, Exactitudes (Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek) realized in collaboration with Farani Sartoria Teatrale in Rome, who provided original costumes from Pasolini's films and pieces from that era. The two photographic grids present, side by side, a reinterpretation of a variety of characters and extras from Pasolini's cinematographic works: fathers and sons—reflecting on the role of bodies and garments in these two generational groups, which Pasolini always considered antagonistic.
This work is created for the exhibition 'Investigating the Body of Pier Paolo Pasolini' (Palazzo Delle Esposizioni 17.10.2022 – 20.01.2023), curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili, Giuseppe Garrera and Cesare Pietroiusti; opening in Rome in October 2022 during 'Everything is Holy', a series of events that celebrate Pasolini's Centenary.
The term 'Epitome' stems from the Greek epitemnein, which means 'to cut short'. First used in 1520, originally meaning 'summary', the term has later come to describe someone or something that represents the ideal characteristics of an entire class—an embodiment of an abstraction. The reason we chose 'Epitome' as a title for this issue, is that the term sheds light on how we cope with our identity in the digital age—in a context where social media has transformed communication into permanent public performances, 'epitome' describes the process of becoming a reduced idea, an embodiment of a type, an idea, an aspiration, or a social-political point of view based on simplicity and digestibility. Willingly or not, we succumb and conform to this mindset—a feature that these platforms enhance by design. The broader topic of concern is how social media platforms, that rely heavily on engagement-driven architectures, have come to harm our societies by directly increasing polarisation in public opinion and politics. The other reason we choose 'Epitome' to bear this issue's title is that while the magazine is entering its second decade, we took time to look back at our journey and reflect on its defining characteristics. This issue developed as a summary of what DUST has been through the years.

“In these readings, I will try to identify various plans of action, from the development of the idea of fashion to its realisation. I do so by explaining the timing and the basis upon which a fashion design idea is shaped and documented in a two-season yearbook; in what way it reduces or increases in the form of a macro or micro-trend. I also delve into how chance, improvisation, unexpected events can become a moment of revelation and successful intuition. I also theorise about why fashion and industrial design are still not intersectional today and continue to have serious gaps generated by entrepreneurial machismo, speculation and waste of potential creativity. Fashion disassociates itself from the social fabric to which it has always belonged and it implodes and transforms into a form of entertainment for a consumerist society.” SP...
