Liminaria / The Manifesto of Rural Futurism

This lecture will examine and introduce to the audience the Manifesto of Rural Futurism, a document produced as a result of a collective thinking and practical process brought on by artists, scholars, curators, critics and people in the framework of Liminaria, a 5-year project sound art residency and fieldwork-based research platform aimed at developing “sustainable” cultural, social and economic networks in the some rural regions of Southern Italy.

 

As final outcome of this project, the Manifesto of Rural Futurism is founded on a series of propositions aiming at rethinking rural areas and re-imagining their possible futures, understanding them as complex spaces actively immersed in the dynamism of encounters, flows and fluxes of contemporary geographies and critically questioning the modernistic discourses of capitalism and metropolitanism in which they are marginalised and considered as doomed to oblivion.

 

Leandro Pisano is a curator, writer and independent researcher who is interested in intersections between art, sound and technoculture.

He is founder and director of Interferenze new arts festival (2003) and frequently is involved in projects on sound art within rural territories, including Liminaria (2014-18). Leandro Pisano holds a PhD in Cultural and Post-Colonial Studies from University of Naples “L’Orientale”.
