Luca Guzzetti Lectures on Art and Politics

“Revolutionary possibility can always be spotted by the impossibility it makes real”

Prof. Luca Guzzetti (University of Genova) is a well known Italian social theorist, performance artist and a critic of Italian media reality – and a long time collaborator of Mollecular Organization, Future Art Base and Bracha Ettinger – whose participation in the works like Jump. Or Why Did Luca Guzzetti Jump into the Ashtrey? (e.g. ARS06) and Kafkamachine have drilled sharply into the core of our existential territory today.

The lectures will deal with the background and future of his work and the necessity of political innovation extending to organizational modalities of subjectivity.
