WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN ART AND POLITICS?



Where Do You Draw the Line Between Art and Politics? consists of a series of interviews with individuals who have been active in various capacities at the intersection of art and politics.

Between historical documentation, political memory, dialogic reflections, and motivational support, the publication focuses on the experiences, commitments, and feelings that animate and inform aesthetic priorities in social spaces both within and outside of art institutions; a repository designed to inspire and encourage the politicization of aesthetics, as opposed to the aestheticization of politics.

The people I interviewed are: Pietro Perotti, a Fiat worker and self-appointed worker communicator; Lucia Farinati, a researcher, activist and independent curator; two anonymous members of a hacker collective working in the field of technology and urban space; Errico Canta Male, a singer-songwriter; and Mario “Schizzo” Frisetti and Luca Bruno, of the Torino Squatters.

NEIDERLANT OU NEIDERLANT


In this project, I asked non-native Dutch residents to make karaoke interpretations of Dutch songs. The songs have been transcribed by the non native speakers according to the (arbitrary) phonetics of their native tongue, highlighting the difficulties in becoming familiar with the sounds of a new language.
The project has been presented as part of the online exhibition Should I Stay Should I Go. The exhibition explored questions around identity and migration viewed through the personal experiences of members of the international artist community in The Hague, Holland. More info here

NO-TAV PROTEST SONGS – radio broadcast

Here follows the upload of the radio broadcast I did together with Franziska Windisch about (some of) the NO-TAV protest songs. The conversation has been realised for radio in between spaces and is part of a current research concerning the history of the NO-TAV movement read through its songs. More about the NO-TAV movement in eng and ita.
