Emilio Fantin

Emilio Fantin is an artist working on dematerialization of art as his individual research and on the concept of organism in collective experiences. His work is mainly based on studying the problems of behaviour and philosophy. He has been carrying on research about the structure of sharing art practices for many years. At present, he is working on multidisciplinary research which studies the relationship between art and agriculture, art and mathematical logic, art and dreams, and art and architecture. He has participated in important contemporary art events (the Venice Biennale, I; Performa07, NY, USA; Le Magasin, Grenoble, F; Neue Galerie, Graz, A; Documenta XIII, Kassell, D). Since 2005, he has taught at the Politecnico, School of Architecture and Society, University of Milano and is also one of the coordinators of the “Osservatorio Public Art”, a research laboratory which promotes projects and ideas about art in public spaces.
