  • Alessio Mazzaro (Italy, 1985) is a visual artist, director and researcher on questions of history. His practice mainly involves sound pieces and performance, using field recordings, interviews, and discursive and participatory practices. Working on the discrepancies between subjectivity and history, he is attracted by peculiar voices that speak of a more complex and human history and reality. He graduated in Envioronmental Engineering (Bsc and Msc), and studied Fine Art and Theatre at IUAV University (BA). Mazzaro has given performances in different workshops at important institutions such as Biennale College Teatro (Venice) and Workspace Brussels. In recent years he was an assistant of Flaka Haliti at the 56th Biennale d’Arte di Venezia and of Petrit Halilaj at the 55th Biennale (Kosovo Pavilion, 2015, 2013).

This October, Alessio Mazzaro will run a workshop as part of the activities of the Stadtlabor, to co-create and co-write a fanzine publication on co-habitation in Europe. The fanzine represents the new issue of European Edinost, an editorial project and investigation run by Mazzaro within the program “Courageous Citizens of the European Cultural Foundation.” On this occasion the lecture will present the story of Edinost, starting with its two years of activity in Trieste (Italy) as a communi-ty-based project, and, then, its European journey.
