Fondazione Prada organizes a symposium on the relationship between art and icon—a major theme of 20th-century thought—to discuss the philosophical, political or sociological motivations that, in the contemporary world, are at the origin of the iconic vision of cinema and its link with art.

Philosophers Massimo Cacciari and Massimo Donà analyzes the relationship between art and icon, in dialogue with Germano Celant, Peppino Ortoleva—a new media specialist—and artists Isaac Julien, Steve McQueen, Tobias Rehberger, Pipilotti Rist and Francesco Vezzoli.

Venue of the symposium: Fondazione Prada, via Fogazzaro 36, Milan
