The exhibition is the last appointment for the curatorial residency independent curator Aria Spinelli conducted at Homesession in Barcelona. As curator in residence and member of Radical Intention, Aria Spinelli proposed a culturally specific and local investigation in the region of Barcelona. Collateral Effects – Beyond Radical Milan initiates a discussion concerning the relationship between art and politics within a european and local framework. As a tangent project to Radical Intention’s ongoing research, Collateral Effects – Beyond Radical Milan looks at issues that were raised throughout Radical intention’s year-long project Milano Radicale (2011-2012). These issues regard in particular art’s engagement with social movements, the social impact of movements on artistic profession, forms of alternative knowledge and the impact of technology, the notion of the political and its relation to practice.
