Stories of resistance with Gianluca Costantini

Tuesday 27 December 2016 > français > italiano

Gianluca Costantini, artist activist “Everything is art, everything is political.”

Gianluca Costantini (Ravenna, 1971) has exhibited in a number of museums and galleries abroad: the Lazarides Gallery, London (2009), the Salon du dessin contemporain, Carrousel du Louvre, Paris (2010), the Dox Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague, the Museum of Graphic Humor Diogenes Taborda, Buenos Aires (2014).

In Italy, his drawings were exhibited alongside Alighiero Boetti’s works at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lissone (2013), or made up large installations and themed projects, such as the D406 gallery in Modena and the Centro Arti Opificio Siri in Terni.

As a Graphic Journalist, he gave a lecture at the Ars Electronic Center in Linz (2009) and took part in the Festival Human Rights in Lugano (2015).

With him, drawing can become a performative act, in a magical dialogue with different stories ad languages: it happened with Hanif Kureshi at the Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna (2011), and with Emidio Clementi, the singer and bass player with Massimo Volume in Modena.

Gianluca has an array of material about the Kurdish people and other groups resisting in Turkey among other things, as well as strips in support of Allepo, Keywan Karimi, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and the #FreeAnons: Jeremy Hammond, Matt DeHart, Barrett Brown, Martin Gottesfeld, Lauri Love.

We note with amusement that his blog was being censured by the Turkish government last June. Gianluca also co-operates with Alberto Tetta, a free lance journalist and scriptwritter, who has been living in istanbul for ten years, as well as Francesca Tosarelli, photojournalist, camerawoman and cross media director.
