FACULTY: Mariangela Ciccarello

Filmmaker, Visual Artist

Mariangela Ciccarello’s practice explores the fissures or ruptures, which allow imagination and reality to communicate, in order to create a wider space of possibilities where new paradigms can take form.

In such a fluid territory, questions of gender, as well as race, class, mobility, resistance to war and capitalism, can be reformulated differently from models of exclusion that predominate in the world.
