formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
In this essay, I explore the digital ritual responses initiated by the ‘Corona death’ as a global media event and analyse how this event and related ritualisation materialised in the Spring and early Summer of 2020. This essay has been inspired by my long-lasting research interest in mediated death and my curiosity for methodological exploration. The analysis is grounded in my ongoing digital media ethnographic fieldwork, as well as Susan Finley’s ideas on arts-based research as a creative methodological means of expanding media anthropological knowledge...

Transilluminating Climate Change digital
formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
This essay studies the problematics of visualizing climate change through research and photography. Messages in the media about climate change have often been stereotypical, extreme or controversial. This type of imagery may be shocking, but it may also make the issue feel distant, abstract and difficult to relate to. This essay reflects on an empirical research into Instagram users’ posts about climate change, using photography as a mode of articulating awareness about the climate crisis. Theoretically, this paper seeks to elaborate on the epistemic possibilities of visibility and photography as a method of research...

This article analyzes a series of interventions and performances by the Comité Magonista Tierra y Libertad (2016-present) based around the flag of the 1911 Magonista Revolution. We trace the semiotic and symbolic functions ascribed to flags, how the production and enactment of this flag, the Tierra y Libertad, eludes those descriptions, and and how the flag participates in forming the apparatus of its own reproduction...

Reasons to Kill a Poet digital
formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
Conceived as a word/image essay, “Reasons to Kill a Poet” takes a critical look at how the term creativity is being mobilized as a key concept of neoliberalism, functioning to repress forms of oppositional creativity through structures of discursive, and embodied, policing and punishment. At the same time, counter-hegemonic creativity persists, and the essay foregrounds particular exemplary works by writers, including Chilean musician and poet Victor Jara, “Estadio Chile” (1973); US-based Black journalist, writer and activist Mumia Abu-Jamal, “Teetering on the Brink: Between Life and Death” (1991); and Ugandan queer activist, researcher, and poet Stella Nyanzi, No Roses from My Mouth (2020)...

formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
In the current and complex landscape of on-demand platforms, Internet-distributed television and catalogs focused on niches, the circulation of live and prized sports content seems to know relevant paradoxes. This essay explores the specific transition of live football competitions from broadcast to broadband in Italy. Starting from the informal media spectrum developed by scholars Lobato and Thomas, new sports-oriented OTTs (e.g. DAZN) and broadcaster’s subsidiaries will be analyzed together with unauthorized IPTVs and live-streaming pirate websites during the sport season 2018/19...

Towards the Platformization of (Social) Media Memory: Articulating Archive, Assemblage, and Ephemerality digital
formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
Although the platformization process has been intensively studied, a better understanding is needed of how it has affected media dynamics such as the formation of media memory. The original contribution of this paper to the research field is, thus, to highlight the interrelatedness of issues, such as media memory, social media, and the platformization process that are usually considered independently...

City of Strangers. Le città multimediali e multi-identitarie di Krzysztof Wodiczko digital
formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Anno: 2021
The article focuses on the case study of the Polish video artist Krzysztof Wodiczko: internationally known as an emblematic example for a reflection on the relationships between urban space, identity and technological advances. Born in Poland in 1943, migrated first to Canada in 1978 and then to the United States in the 1990s, Wodiczko is today a world-class artist and director of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies of MIT. Given his emigrant status as well as the ever-influential spread of xenophobic policies at a global level, Wodicko has focused in his research a particular interest in social exclusion by electing the social outcast to undisputed protagonists of his works: from homeless to war veterans and military veterans, from exploited workers to victims of family violence, from disabled to drug addicts, from homosexuals to women to foreigners...

formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access

The article explores how academic and arts-based research have been combined in curating the contemporary, media-rich exhibition The Time of Freedoms, which is part of the permanent exhibition of the Estonian National Museum. The article shows how the success of exhibition-making practice depends on the skill of switching codes from the more strictly procedure-oriented sociological/ethnological, to an arts-based approach that relies on being processual and performative...

Self-Reflexive Suspense: The Music of Bernard Herrmann and Pino Donaggio in Brian De Palma’s Thrillers digital
formato: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 2
Anno: 2021
It is known that film director Brian De Palma has a recognizable style which may be called mannerist, virtuosic, and operatic, and his narrational mode is often self-reflexive. De Palma’s thrillers are rich in music, which helps connoting the sequences and making meanings. Following a neoformalist approach, this article aims at demonstrating how music contributes to De Palma’s self-reflexivity, in that it is often used intertextually...
