Serena Osti considers herself a hybrid designer-artist. Her projects span from experimental graphic design, artistic research, political activism and social business. Following her eclectic interests, she started turning personal experiences, interests and failures into projects, which she now presents at festivals and fairs for contemporary arts. In her works she focuses on enhancing relationships and emotions working with adults, children and young adults and this can happen in form of a game, a concert, or an encounter. She also started Gilda, the national platform for the rights' of Italian visual artists, and Affitti semplici, a concept of innovative co-working.
During the class Serena will give a short introduction to some of her projects and will invite the students into a small group performance.
