Giuseppe Spina

Giuseppe Spina e Giulia Mazzone si occupano di ricerca e sperimentazioni nel cinema, nella fotografia, nella musica, nelle arti figurative. Il loro percorso è guidato da un’indagine delle linee di forza che determinano le strutture della visione, della materia, così come dei meccanismi sociali e culturali, attraverso la libera riformulazione di immaginari scientifici, artistici e mitologici.

Nel 2010 fondano NOMADICA, un network focalizzato sullo studio, lo sviluppo e la diffusione del cinema d’artista e di ricerca. In modi autonomi e inediti curano centinaia di eventi e programmi in Italia e all’estero, coinvolgendo maestri, giovani filmmakers, intellettuali, programmatori e artisti internazionali. Stanno sviluppando l’Artist Film Lab, un progetto laboratoriale all’interno dell’Accademia di Belle Arti LABA di Brescia.

I loro film sono stati proiettati in festival internazionali fra i quali International Film Festival Rotterdam; Annecy Animated FF; Crossroads – San Francisco; European Media Art Festivals – Osnabrück; Interfilm – Berlino; Cámara Lúcida – Ecuador; Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival; Montreal Underground Film Festival; flEXiff – Sidney; Short Waves Festival – Polonia; Pesaro Film Festival; Invideo – Milano.

Giuseppe Spina and Giulia Mazzone are working on research and experiments in cinema, photography, music and figurative arts.
