Luigi Coppola is an Italian artist who works within the fields of performance, video and public art projects. Through his research he develops social choreographies as democratic models, partecipative and collaborative practices, politically motivated actions, bringing to front a notion of art practice as mise en forme of political, economic, social issues and claims. He is currently involved in a project aiming at the common reorganization of the political, agricultural and economic systems of a entire village in the south of Italy and in projects on “political chorality” in different places in Europe.
He created projects, performances and exhibitions in different international contexts such as 1st Democracy Biennale, Turin (IT); Nomas Foundation, Rome; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; Teatro Valle Occupato, Rome; Wiener Festwochen Vienna; Maxxi Museum (Rome); Extra City Antwerpen (BE); Museum Madre, Naples; New Langton Art, San Francisco; Galleria Lungomare, Bolzano (in the frame of Manifesta 7 and Lungomare Gasthaus); Santarcangelo Festival, (IT); WunderderPrairie, Mannheim; Fabbrica Europa Festival, Florence.
