Riccardo Benassi

Riccardo Benassi was born in Italy in 1982, grew up in Cremona, on the banks of the river Po and currently lives and works in Berlin. Frequently collaborating with architects, artists, curators, musicians and theoreticians, Benassi is considered one of the most prolific Italian artist of his generation and an active agitator of the European underground experimental music scene. Operating within a range of international contexts, Riccardo Benassi's works are the result of an articulated assemblage of images, sounds, colors, texts, functional objects, and diverse materials, which are put together to generate large-scale installations, videos, performances, artist's books and sculptural elements in which the visual part is one of the many elements that compose the final result. He recently published Letters from the Passenger Seat with No One at the Wheel (Mousse Publishing 2010), Briefly, Ballare (Danilo Montanari 2012), and Attimi Fondamentali (Mousse Publishing 2013).
