Italian Conversations – Art in the age of Berlusconi is the result of an itinerant residency of the Dutch collective Fucking Good Art (Rob Hamelijnck and Nienke Terpsma) in Italy, who placed themselves as outsider observers of the complex Italian cultural scene in the current political and economical background. Starting from an investigation of the territory, through a travel and study experience, the volume provides a mapping of the current cultural Italian situation, at the same time positioning itself as an original critical research.

The book, the 29th issue of Fucking Good Art, contains 26 conversations with artists, curators, critics and gallerists who play an active role in the Italian contemporary art world, 7 artists’ contributions and 9 texts, as well as a list of independent non-profit private initiatives by artists, curators, collectors and others, compiled in collaboration with partners from the seven different territories involved in this book project.

Italian Conversations – Art in the age of Berlusconi is a project by Fucking Good Art, commissioned by Nomas Foundation, published by NERO, Rome, and post editions, Rotterdam.
