Anceschi si racconta

Si tratta di una figura non proprio comune sulla scena del design: a partire dagli anni sessanta del XX secolo - ha sviluppato la sua attività in molti ambiti, tutti però legati dall'interesse per una comunicazione e una sperimentazione che nella temporalità trova la sua dimensione principale, che faccia uso delle tecnologie avanzate e che prenda posizione per un design etico e politico. Come artista, è stato fra i fondatori del movimento dell'Arte cinetica e programmata (un'arte che negli anni sessanta era già metamorfica, immersiva e interattiva). Come designer ha sviluppato in Italia e all'estero, grandi progetti d'immagine coordinata, d'exhibition design, e alcuni esempi pionieristici di multimedia, hypermedia e interaction design. Come docente, dopo essere stato il primo docente ad insegnare discipline del progetto di comunicazione nell'università italiana, v'insegna da oltre trent'anni. Come critico, storico e teorico della disciplina del progetto di comunicazione ha pubblicato libri e contributi in Italia e all'estero. A lui si deve l'introduzione nel design discourse di nozioni come “monogramma”, “artefatto comunicativo” (communication artifact), “teoria protetica degli oggetti”, “immagine coordinata hard e soft”, “anafora elettronica”, o come “interfaccia delle città” e “cura delle transizioni”. [1] Lavora al progetto di una revisione della disciplina del design della comunicazione nel senso del passaggio dalla disciplina tattica del progetto di artefatto alla disciplina strategica del “progetto registico” (Theory of staging), poi “registica multimodale”.

Tessile e Salute

Il momento populista

Laureato in Scienze Politiche a Padova, di formazione marxista, negli anni 1970 milita nel Gruppo Gramsci, nato dalla disgregazione del Pcd'I. Dal 1970 al 1974 lavora come operatore sindacale della Federazione dei Lavoratori Metalmeccanici come responsabile provinciale per gli impiegati e i tecnici. Dopo lo scioglimento del Gruppo Gramsci, partecipa alla fase iniziale dell'esperienza dell'Autonomia Operaia ma nella seconda metà degli anni settanta se ne allontana progressivamente. Dal 1980 al 1989 è caporedattore del mensile culturale Alfabeta. Lavora poi nella redazione culturale de L'Europeo, e in quella del Corriere della Sera. Nel 1980 pubblica per Feltrinelli La fine del valore d'uso, dedicato alle trasformazioni dell'organizzazione del lavoro indotte dalle tecnologie. Nel 1991 pubblica Piccole apocalissi (Raffaello Cortina Editore). Con il volume Incantati dalla Rete (Raffaello Cortina Editore, 2000), inizia a sistematizzare la sua analisi sulle dinamiche di rete. Nel saggio successivo Mercanti di futuro. Utopia e crisi della Net Economy (Einaudi, 2002) affronta la new economy, la libertà della rete e i rapporti col capitalismo. A chiudere la trilogia sulle mutazioni economiche e antropologiche portate dalla diffusione di Internet, scrive Cybersoviet. Utopie postdemocratiche e nuovi media (Raffaello Cortina Editore, 2008). Nel libro sostiene che nessuna tecnologia possa avere uno sbocco sociale predeterminato, in quanto strumento a disposizione dell'uomo: tuttavia, le radici di Internet si collocano in una società americana, pur con dei valori morali forti, ma altrettanto fortemente individualista e poco orientata allo spirito comunitario. A questa tendenza storica si aggiungono i più recenti fenomeni di commercializzazione della Rete, e il rapporto talora contrastante di libertà-sicurezza. Con il libro Felici e sfruttati. Capitalismo digitale ed eclissi del lavoro (Egea, 2011) affronta il tema del lavoro cognitivo e del suo sfruttamento. La seconda parte del libro termina con un'analisi post-marxista sul tema del plusvalore nella società digitale. Nel 2002 è professore a contratto di Teoria e tecnica dei nuovi media presso l'Università di Lecce. Dal 2006 è ricercatore e professore aggregato presso la stessa facoltà.
