CAST OUT LOUD presents Manifesto of Rural Futurism with Leandro Pisano and Philip Samartzis
Italian theorist and curator Leandro Pisano, and Australian sound artist Philip Samartzis collaborate to present The Manifesto of Rural Futurism, a lecture supported by series of recordings exploring the sounds of remote southern Italian communities. The Manifesto provides a critical perspective in which multiple points of view converge to afford new and striking ways to rethink ‘rurality’.
Leandro Pisano is interested in intersections between art, sound and technoculture. He is founder and director of Interferenze new arts festival and works on projects dealing with sound art and ecology of rural and marginal territories. Among the sonic art exhibitions he has curated are Otros sonidos, otros paisajes (MACRO Museum, Rome, Italy, 2017) and Alteridades de lo invisible (Festival Tsonami, Valparaíso, Chile, 2018). He holds a PhD in Cultural and Post-Colonial Studies from University of Naples L’Orientale and he is presently Honorary Research Fellow at University of Urbino Carlo Bo.
