Artists, especially those belonging to younger generations, act in a wider and complex contest which can’t be reduced to the idea of nationality and geographical borders: prizes, artists in residence programs, international workshops offer the freedom of action in a lot of contexts abroad.
The scenery of artistic research is influenced by the great mobility and flexibility of young artists. The question, thus, is about the birth of new strategies within the persistence of recognized styles or “schools”.
Generazione Critica is an analysis of artistic research with particular attention paid to image-based themes.
