Luigi Coppola

Luigi Coppola is an Italian artist, based in Brussels, who works within the fields of performance, video and public art projects. Through his research he develops social choreographies as democratic models, participative and collaborative practices, politically motivated actions, bringing to front a notion of art practice as mise-en-forme of political, economic, social issues and claims. He is currently involved in a project aiming at the common re-organization of the political, agricultural and economic systems of a entire village in the south of Italy. He created projects, performances and exhibitions on “political chorality” in different places in Europe and in different international contexts such as 1st Democracy Biennale, Turin (IT); Nomas Foundation, Rome; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; Teatro Valle Occupato, Rome; Wiener Festwochen Vienna; Maxxi Museum (Rome); Extra City Antwerpen (BE); Museum Madre, Naples; New Langton Art, San Francisco; Galleria Lungomare, Bolzano (in the frame of Manifesta 7 and Lungomare Gasthaus); Santarcangelo Festival, (IT);WunderderPrairie, Mannheim; Fabbrica Europa Festival, Florence.
