*Limited Edition of 515 copies* L’Appeso (The Hanged Man) is the first sound work by the artist Marcelo Expósito to be released on vinyl, published in book-disc format by the Barcelona label G33G in its legendary tarot series. Inspired by Nanni Balestrini and Luigi Nono this work is about the current naturalisation of fascist violence and its other side, the difficulty of dealing with the Italian and European insurrections of the 1960s and 1970s. It is intended to illustrate the current global crisis of neoliberalism and the new political emergencies that oppose it.

Made during Marcelo Expósito’s residency at the Spanish Academy in Rome, based on field recordings, electronic sounds and voices, for this publication we have had the collaboration of the philosopher Franco Bifo Berardi, the curator Marco Scotini, the composer Hugo Gómez-Chao, the musician Chinowski Garachana and the voices of women activists linked to social organizations or movements—feminist, anti-racist, for climate justice, for the right to the city or in defense of the territory—active in the city of Rome.

L’Appeso is a work by Marcelo Expósito published in 2023 by G33G Records in its tarot record collection started in 1989. Sound recordings, sound editing and additional music by Chinowski Garachana. With the voices of Marcelo Expósito, Franco Bifo Berardi, Miriam Tola, Ana Mina, Beatrice (Ultima Generazione) and Luisa Fioravanti (Cobragor). Piano performance by Hugo Gómez-Chao. Mastering by Julián Calvo. Critical texts by Marcelo Expósito and Marco Scotini. Translations by la correccional made with a grant from the Institut Ramon Llull de Catalunya. Photographs by Marcelo Expósito and Chinowski Garachana. Design by todojunto.net. This project is the result of a residency at the Spanish Academy in Rome, within the scope of the MAEC-AECID Art, Education and Culture grant for the 2022-2023 academic year.

“Marcelo Expósito reactivates production methodologies such as Nanni Balestrini’s use of cut-up and Luigi Nono’s phoneme splitting technique… This sort of theatre of denunciation and resistance (where the materials themselves act) is a reference to this two extraordinary and relentless figures of recent Italian cultural history who have practised civil commitment and militancy in the field as something inseparable from artistic work” (Marco Scotini).
