An autobiographical and universal diary made of images, about human beings’ weakness, that tells about life, sex, transgression, drugs, friendship, loneliness. A work in progress that started by early Eighties, today known as one of the most important artworks of the history of photography.

Nan Goldin gaze holds every moment of her daily life. The artist portraits herself and her mates’ troubled vicissitudes, on the background of Boston, New York, London and Berlin’s downtowns by the ’70 and ’80. Her photography is instinctive, unconcerned about nice form, it goes beyond the appearance, deeply through each situation, without any mediation.

Her artistic path totally coincides with the suffered and fascinated biography, without any doubt she gave life to a new photographical genre. Her photography is studied, used and imitated all over the world.

The installation of the project is made by a scenography, which is shaped as an amphitheater, that wraps the visitor on which is projected the video every hour. Graphic material and some original posters from her early performance in New York’s pubs will enrich the exhibition.
