event in Italian

Architect and curator Mirko Zardini examines criticism, moving from artworks to projects, in a world dominated by social media and institutions.

Marginalized as a subjective and, therefore, dangerous practice, criticism today has been almost entirely replaced by more scientific analysis practices and by the presence of new media and actors.
