Paololuca Barbieri Marchi

Research Title:The Future of the Image

I will focus my research on the relations between authorship and creative practices through new media and web sharing technologies, investigating the artist individuality and its constant redefinitions
After developing an historical overview on conceptual artists selected as precursors of strategies and practices adopted by the network culture, I will
try to draw a  path through the issues encountered analyzing the work and the internal debate of Alterazioni Video art collective, trying to define and rethink which are the real possibilities and dangers of the Artist outside the framework of exhibitions and where is possible an intertwining between an intellectual and analytic approach and the sexualized media spectacle of platform such us Youtube, social networks and so on.
Particularly, I am interested in exploring the ways the artist, as the expert par excellence of image production, can be the one who enters into this transmission stream and actually slows it down, that is intellectualizes the follows, to question it, instead of simply passing it on.
