A panel of European art historians, critics, curators, journalists, and philosophers will bring to life the virtual pages of the Archives through short thematic video clips (with English subtitles). The talks will dive into Luigi Pericle’s art, as well as on his studies of theosophy and anthroposophy and his interest in Oriental philosophies, esotericism, astrology and alternative spirituality. Pericle was a complex, versatile figure, sometimes elusive in all the various aspects of his life and work. In these online conversations, his work is brought into a new light while bringing together different voices of the art world as they go through archival documents and significant pieces that are a part of the ongoing research on the Swiss artist.
Starting on the 21st of April and airing on Tuesdays and Fridays, the programme includes the participation of acclaimed names in the world of art including Andrea Biasca-Caroni, François Barras, Luca Bochicchio, Fabrizio Cassinelli, Angelo Lorenzo Crespi, Federico Crimi, Marco Pasi, Carla Schulz-Hoffmann, Anna de Fazio Siciliano, Chiara Gatti, Carole Haensler, Susanna Koeberle, Desirée Maida, Martina Mazzotta, Fabio Merlini, Nicoletta Mongini, Stefania Portinari, Michele Tavola, Italo Tomassoni and Piero Tomassoni.
After the success of the exhibition hosted at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia during the 2019 Venice Art Biennale, the Non-Profit Association “Archivio Luigi Pericle” based in Ascona has continued its commitment to the artist’s archive by completing the cataloguing of paintings, India ink drawings, illustrations and sketches – in addition to the rich collection of books, notebooks, horoscopes, manuscripts, and correspondence. The collection is currently being digitalised and will be available for consultation soon. The Archivio will be open to the public as soon as possible. All documents and works can be consulted by scholars upon appointment. In the meantime, Luigi Pericle is waiting for you on the Internet with his “clips from the virtual space”.

Nena 99 LUFT BALLONS
Children dream of what they will be as adults and adults dream about their childhood. But sometimes, when orderly life becomes paralyzed in routine, adults need the inner child to bring about change: “Be my rebel”, the first collaboration of the two music legends Nena and Dave Stewart, premiered at Nenas 40th anniversary on stage. The accompanying video by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Virgil Widrich transfers the story into a dreamlike, glass mirror world that is powered by Dave Stewart at the controls of his classic modular synthesizers. At the typewriter: Nena as an annoyed bookkeeper, who threatens to disappear soon with her flower dress in her flower wallpaper. But the inner dialogue works in both directions and soon takes effect: rebellion changes the past – and thus also the future.
Virgil Widrich, born 1967 in Salzburg, works on numerous multimedia and film productions.
His first feature film is “Heller als der Mond” (“Brighter than the Moon”). His short film “Copy Shop” won 35 international awards and was nominated for the Oscar. “Fast Film” premiered in Cannes 2003 and won 36 awards until today. His newest feature film is “Night of a 1000 Hours” (2016). Virgil Widrich lives in Vienna/Austria.
