With the exhibition All Capitals, Julia Born is the fifth protagonist of the IN-DESIGN space. Exploring various forms of writing as a medium of expression, the designer has gathered fragments, exclusively in upper case, of a vocabulary that is widespread in the city of Rome. Through the assembly of a linguistic fabric organized in inscriptions, signs, labels, imprints, scribbles and scattered drawings, from antiquity to the present, Born sheds light on the power of the written word, the attribution of a title or the ownership of a place, the relationship between power and public space, and the desire to leave a mark.
To follow, the booklet available for download offering the informative profiles of the selected verbal fragments, to provide the audience with a tool that illustrates the stories behind each item.
Contributions by the researcher Ary Ray and the curator Salvatore Lacagnina are an integral part of the publication.
