Pascal Schwaighofer’s artistic practice focuses on metaphors, legends and analogies of apparently unrelated narratives, politics, and aesthetics. His recent works dwell on the ontology of the Animal and its Western iconography, and he is presently working on a video essay around gene manipulation and film editing. He graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan in 2003 and is currently a Ph.D. student at the Cornell University, Ithaca, USA, writing a dissertation on the politico-philosophical implications of the swarm, network and multitude, iconically embedded in the “honeybee metaphor”. Recent lecture-performances include La classe sterile, with Christian Marazzi, at Museo Vincenzo Vela. In 2016 was released Tulipmania, a publication based on a dialogue between Jan Verwoert and himself as an extension of a multi-part work called Economimesis.
