“Rather than suffering or resist it by inertia, global capitalism seems to have made own flows, speed, nomadism? So we have to be even more mobile. Do not force us, and force us to greet the stagnation as an ideal. Is the world imaginary dominated by flexibility? We invent new meanings for it, inoculate the long term and the extreme slowness in the heart of the speed rather than oppose it rigid and nostalgic postures. The strength of this style of thought lies in operational protocols: to develop a nomadic thought that organizes itself in terms of circuits and experiments, and no permanent installation. We have to oppose to the precarious experience a resolutely precarious thought that fits and infiltrates in the same networks that suffocate us.”
Nicolas Bourriaud

THE CRITICISM, THE FIGHT, THE FUTURE: LUCA ROSSI  

The text has been translated from Italian into English with Google Translate. In so doing, the text deliberately maintains a level of approximation and imperfection that allows a more engaged, interactive, and open reading of the artwork and intentions.

In Italy, there is a figure of considerable interest in the contemporary art scene: Luca Rossi, artist / collective critic, curator, blogger, controversial character who also works with anonymity, a sort of Anonymous of the Art System ( where the ego seems to no longer exist and where anyone can be Luca Rossi), where “critical process”, virtual space (the one created by the Internet) and the real one seem to have no more boundaries and blend into one.  

Today the individual experiences a sort of “non-experience” in the sense that the majority of his time is spent surfing the “network” and much of this is leading to a “new memory-without memory” to “a” passive and a-critical assimilation “and this Luke seems to know it very well. Luca reminds us of the historical and artistic references, our past, what it means to be critical and active, struggling to maintain its own authenticity and extricate itself in a world that has more the appearance of a great Mc Donald.  

We are amazed at how much Luca’s work is followed by many curators, artists also in Europe, many of whom have fled from Italy. Luca is considered the only critical voice out of the chorus for the current Italian scene.   The disturbing thing is that Rossi, despite his work is widely and verbally recognized, is not yet considered by Italian institutions and organizations. The thing is emblematic and says a lot about what is worth in Italy compared to the being of “real artists”.   An Italian landscape that has been dragging on for perhaps more than 10 years, bringing artists “copy and paste”, endless repetitions of projects with the same names, implicitly decreeing an end to contemporary art.
