FLASHBACK is back with its innovative format to show once again how contemporary historical art is. 

The central theme of the fifth edition is inspired by Philip K. Dick sci-fi novel Counter-Clock World, where time has started to move in reverse. FLASHBACK then, by presenting some of the best worldwide galleries of ancient and modern art, represents the opportunity to look differently at what is surrounding us so as to find new keys of understanding to re-read and interpret contemporaneity.

From November 2 through 5 FLASHBACK – all art is contemporary, the ancient and modern art fair, curated by Stefania Poddighe and Ginevra Pucci, holds its fifth edition. In these few years, the fair managed to position itself at national and international level. Loyal to its claim all art is contemporary, the innovative format has been successful thanks to the originality and contemporaneity of its language. 

The exhibition has grown exponentially throughout these years, both in terms of quality and figures, confirming its being a fair with prestigious presences worldwide, but of intentionally reduced size; flashback has proven its ability to combine culture and market in one equation whose result is knowledge as a tool to orient the choice of the individuals.

The program of the 5th edition underlines such research by proposing a reflection on a different way of looking at time, it is inspired by the sci-fi novel by Philip K. Dick Counter-Clock World, where time has started to move in reverse; the “counter-clock world” is therefore counter-clockwise, counter-current, and it represents the different perspective, the subjective point of view, the opportunity to look differently at what is surrounding us, finding new elements, new keys of understanding to re-read and interpret contemporaneity.
