PhD in "Arts and Art Sciences" from the Panthéon-Sorbonne University of Paris, France, my work includes visual as well as theoretical research about the relations between art and society. Indeed, despite the almost obligatory presence in contemporary art of social, political and militant interventions, art seems more than ever to be just a simple entertainment for wealthy classes, to whom it offers the status of having both a good conscience and that of belonging to the elite.
