MatchPoint: the artistic research as a collaborative practice in the contemporary city

(Italiano) L'oggetto di indagine è costituito da un organismo sociale che, con la sua presenza nei quartieri popolari della città di Napoli, fa tutela attiva del suo patrimonio culturale materiale e immateriale, sia rivitalizzando e manutenendo intere aree cittadine dalla conformazione pre-moderna, sia partecipando alla definizione dell'effetto città (confronto, scambio, contaminazione).

The never-ending performance that is living. An interview with Hugo Olim

The still image, which can be a photograph, or a frame of a video, or even a pixel, is a unity and as such it is a departing point for Hugo Olim’s artworks concept. Metaphorically, the still image, as is presented to us, results from a dialogue with sound from which it receives properties of rhythm and movement.

Jeroen Van Loon: the future is almost all temporary

With a degree in digital media design and a relatively short career which began no later than 2010, Jeroen Van Loon has shortly become one of the most interesting media artist internationally. His research is able to surprisingly and ironically integrate a critical approach to the use of technological tools - in particular the Internet, with a solid theoretical and conceptual framework. Such an approach results in the production of objects and installations that enter the exhibition space with disarming immediacy.
