Installation for the XIV Carrara Biennal consists of five steel tables with different fragments of anarchists texts from the personal archives of three Anarchist leaders, shown in lead in Letterpress. Two big tables are more in general about the ideology of Anarchism. The three smaller tables are about Anarchists events in Carrara, well known for its marble quarries, but also for its strong labour and anarchists movement. For example a table with the list of death and wounded of an uproar in 1894 in the mine city. The textfragments are drawn from public media (flyers, public announcements or reports) and personal notes of the three anarchist leaders with their doubts and thoughts about the anarchist movement.
