☛ Welcome To The Entreprecariat

curated by Silvio Lorusso (Institute of Network Cultures di Amsterdam) – Rotterdam-based artist, designer, and researcher. His current research focuses on the relationship between entrepreneurship and precarity, i.e. entreprecariat. His work was shown at Transmediale (Berlin, Germany), NRW- Forum (Düsseldorf, Germany), Impakt (Utrecht, Netherlands), Sight & Sound (Montreal, Canada), Adhocracy (Athens, Greece), Biennale Architettura (Venezia, Italy). He holds a Ph.D. in Design Sciences from the School of Doctorate Studies – Iuav University of Venice. He is an affiliated researcher at the Institute of Network Cultures of Amsterdam. His writing has appeared in Prismo, Printed Web 3, Metropolis M, Progetto Grafico, Digicult, Diid, and Doppiozero. His work has been featured in, among others, The Guardian, The Financial Times, and Wired. Since 2013, he manages the Post-Digital Publishing Archive (p-dpa.net). Currently, he works as a mentor at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences’ PublishingLab.

☛ Politics Of Imagination

curated by Tommaso Guariento (Université Paris-Sorbonne) – Born in Padova during 1985, he studied contemporary philosophy at the University of Padua and at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. He received his PhD in European Cultural Studies from the University of Palermo. As a visiting fellow at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales, he made research in contemporary French anthropology under the supervision of Professor Carlo Severi. He wrote several articles and essays concerning visual studies, contemporary philosophy and anthropology. He collaborates with several online magazines, including Prismo, Effimera, L’indiscreto, Il Lavoro Culturale. He is interested in contemporary French philosophy and anthropology, visual studies, semiotics and analysis of imaginaries. In particular, his most recent research focuses on the relationships between ethnographic studies and contemporary philosophy (relating to the debate around Ontological turn and Speculative realism), on the study of the mythologies of the present by using cognitive and cultural anthropology, and on the political debate concerning post-workerist tradition and accelerationism. Among his recent publications: Macchina gnostica, macchina orfica: decostruzione e montaggio delle ideologie (Tricontre, 2015); Le rovine del tempo. Catastrofi, previsione, Singolarità e Realismo Speculativo: dalla crisi dell’immaginario all’immaginario della crisi (Lo Sguardo, 2016).

☛ A Vulgar Display Of Power

curated by Luciano Perondi (ISIA Urbino) – has been involved professionally in type and information design since 1998. His main fields of interest are writing and reading process, the history of writing and its non linear use (sinsemia).

It was extraordinary, thank you all for your partecipation!
