PULIZIA, 2016

Installation, video documentation, photographs Variable dimension

The logo of Italian police “Polizia” shifts into the visual identity of an invented illegal cleaning enterprise, called “Pulizia” (literally in Italian “cleaning”). Pulizia becomes a new brand printed on white uniforms, to be worn by immigrants based in Italy who would clean public and private spaces. This linguistic manipulation metaphorically problematizes Italian migration politics, questioning who has to clean and what has to be cleaned.
