DISPATCH N° 13

For this new episode of Dispatch, I invited Giulia Crispiani, one of the artists on show in my RETROFUTURE section, to curate a special episode. Drawing inspiration from the city of Rome, its sounds and an imagined rain that features as a sort of MacGuffin in her writing. Here, she reads Monsone perpetuo, which could be called a prelude to Il Futuro è finito ieri, the work which you can find in my physical space.

DISPATCH N° 10

This new episode of Dispatch comes out on the occasion of the #Giornatadelcontemporaneo organized by AMACI — Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums.

I invited Nicola Pecoraro, artist and creator of my avatar, to curate this special episode. Drawing intuitively from the landscapes that surround him, he proposed for my podcast a remix of heterogeneous contents, such as the sound elements taken from everyday life and the fragments of songs that trace his research or his collaborations and make up a collage of voices.
