The Jim Dandies

The 29th of July 2020 at 6pm, Majid Foundation, Ascona

A New appointment with music. The Majid Foundation is once again committed to livening up Ascona’s summer by promoting a jazz evening; starring The Jim Dandies.
Paolo Fornaro on piano, Paolo Busatto on guitar and Alessandra Perozzo vocalist, this band offers jazz that ranges from classic blues to boogie woogie.

Alessandra’s scratchy voice brings us back to the tradition, to the origin, involving the audience in the emotions that in the 20/30 years led to the birth of that overwhelming wind that was then called jazz.

The evening will take place in two parts with a free offer for music and drinks.

Coming Soon…Rewiev of Cinema and Utopias at Majid!

Fall – Winter 2020/2021

Thomas More published in 1516 “Utopia”, coining a very happy neologism, still very current, from the Greek. Utopia is a non-place, a place that does not exist where an ideal society based on social justice is imagined.
The term was new but the concept had been a reason for research in past centuries, the most famous was Platone (Republic), in the past it involved philosophers, scientists, writers, playwrights. The utopian matter is extremely interesting and modern, especially in these difficult times that require us to change and reinvent our lives in every field, social relationships, work, distances, freedom. Even the economy, the engine of human activity, is forced to review its goals in an ethical sense for a better future for us and for future generations.
We proposed three clips with a philosophical interpretation of segments of as many movies, the topic is utopia in marriage, considered the founding element of society and, sometimes, limit to the emancipation of women.
Utopia in art. What is art? Provocation? Commercial? Is it something lasting over time or is it ephemeral? Perhaps, it is essential that it raises questions. This small series concludes with utopia in the meta-cinema, a very particular branch in which cinema reveals its language and tells the audience its tricks.
