My name is Domenico Quaranta and I’m a contemporary art critic and curator. I care for art that is aware of the internet, of globalization, climate change, postfordism, mediatization of life, dematerialization of power, identity construction, body manipulation, copyright obsolescence, this kind of stuff. Some of this art is networked, most isn’t; some of this art is done with digital means, most isn’t. Some of this art is an explicit take on this issues, most just exists within them. I still didn’t find a better term to address it than contemporary art. In the end, how can something be “contemporary” if it’s not aware of the internet, of globalization, climate change, postfordism, mediatization of life, dematerialization of power, identity construction, body manipulation, copyright obsolescence?

This is how I look like when I’m hanging out with a good photographer. Just like anybody else, I’m on Facebook, I collect bookmarks, I share images and videos and I try to keep Google updated about the things I do.
I’m one of the founders of the Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age. Most of what I did since 2011 is part of it, and is better illustrated on its website. Check it out!
