“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


 In the Italian contemporary art scene there is a figure of considerable interest. Luca Rossi–artist/ collective, critic, curator, and blogger–is a controversial personality who works in anonymity, as some kind of Anonymous of the Art System. In Luca Rossi’s philosophy, the ego no longer exists because anyone can be Luca Rossi, at the same time that the “critical process”, the virtual space of the Internet, and the real context no longer have boundaries and blend into one. Scroll down this page. 

Today individuals experience a sort of “non-experience” in the sense that they spend most of their time surfing the “network”, producing a “new memory-without memory” or a “passive and a-critical assimilation” into the system. Luca Rossi knows this well. He constantly reminds us of the history of art and ideas, of our past, of what it means to be critical and active, struggling to preserve one’s own authenticity and originality in the great McDonald that is our contemporary world.

Many curators and artists, both in Italy and Europe, have been following Luca’s work with great excitement. By now Luca is considered the only critical voice that “stands out” in the current Italian landscape.

It is worrisome that Luca’s work has yet to be recognized by institutions and organizations, despite receiving the acknowledgement of the public and many curators and artists. This says a lot about what the value that the Italian system places on the “real artist”. The Italian contemporary landscape has been dragging itself down for more than 10 years, producing artists who “copy and paste”, endless repetitions of projects signed by the same names, and decreeing the end of contemporary art.
