Artist and media critic Alessandro Ludovico interviews the three artists named Janez Janša. It’s no coincidence that they have the same name and not by chance that they share it with the former Slovenian Prime minister: they deliberately and officially changed the names they’d had from birth to Janez Janša. They also joined the right-wing SDS party led by their homonymous counterpart. After that they experienced a “visible disappearance” from having canceled their previous names but simultaneously having gained huge visibility thanks to their radical gesture. Changing your name is similar to dying: it affects more people other than just ...

James R. Southard has been working with small community groups in the hopes of building collaborative digital photo and video projects. Each series has been catered to the issues and concerns of each region through documenting local habits, patterns, rituals, language, history, and so on. This most recent year, James has started to turn the lens around towards himself. He has started to alter this regional material gathering technique into a biographical survey of his late father’s experiences in the 1970s. The resulting work has been a digital collage of still and moving images along with life action shots, building ...

The artistic practice of Luca Staccioli is research-based, process-oriented, and involves different media including video, sound, photography, sculpture, drawing and collage. Conceived as narrations, his artworks perform an investigative action by questioning the distance between individuals and pre-established values, souvenirs and different times. Facing obsolescence, decay, and a loss of function, the remains of our days come out temporarily from the dynamics of construction of identity and of geographical and historical narratives, before being reabsorbed by economic processes. The artworks of Staccioli stratify and combine micro-histories, uprooted memories, as well as daily objects and nomadic images, proliferating from global-local dimensions ...

An essay on the artwork of Ivana Spinelli, published on the occasion of her solo show Contropelo at Gallleriapiù, Bologna (January 23 – March 28, 2020). Ivana Spinelli suggests a different look into the signs that are deposited in our collective memory as decorative elements lacking of any linguistic value. All of a sudden, those inscriptions manifest themselves as a code composed by discrete elements that can be used to form words and sentences, and take concrete shape as sculptural matter. – Claudio Musso

Is our society busy with technological determinism? And how is contemporary art building social and cultural alternatives? In this perspective, technological innovation is observed in its social consequences and shaped by society itself. This paper tries to address these questions through the artistic practice of New Zealand artist Simon Denny, who we have followed and interviewed during the Political Populism exhibition at Vienna’s Kunsthalle.
