Why black is more and more the new black?
This issue of Viceversa investigates the gap between the huge mass of dark proposals in the recent architectural production and the lack of theoretical positions aimed to support them.
Ten conversations with architects, artists, critics, curators, historians from the various fields of arts and design try to shed some light on this obscure matter.

Viceversa is a curatorial “boogazine” designed to reflect a plural discussion. Each issue has a specific curator who proposes and develops a theme with the support of the editorial staff. The idea is to offer the opportunity for a wide-ranging discussion about iconographic themes that straddle contemporary and past ages starting from the assumption that aesthetic issues, particularly architectural ones, remain relevant across the centuries.
