ABOUT

ALESSANDRO BERTONCELLO

Founder of progettozero+ (www.progettozeropiu.com) and capolinea design (www.capolineadesign.com), I hold a MA degree in Art Theory and History. I worked as curator, artist and producer, realizing projects with, among others, Angela Vettese, Joseph Kosuth, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Tomas Saraceno, Giorgio Andreotta Calò.

I use different media, with no distinctions between personal, collective and curatorial projects.
My personal production is a-stylistic and follows a research approach finalized to immediate fruition, where production and fruition process integrate each other.
I took part in exhibitions and curated, produced public art projects in Italy and abroad, in cooperation with universities, other artists and institutions.
