Hyper*Espresso aims to be an edgy look at the reality of contemporary Italy.

This exercise provides a unique opportunity to analyze, deconstruct and reinterpret salient aspects of our identity. Through an academic rigor and critical lens, as well as a multidisciplinary approach not without satire and irony, the artists immerse themselves in the cultural fabric of our country. From politics to religion, from food to sex, and from cultural contradictions to national football identity, to resurface and offer a sharp and illuminating perspective on the social dynamics that characterize us.

Through works of art that blend aesthetics and social critique, we open up to a profound dialogue about Italian culture, questioning our traditions, institutions and idiosyncrasies, inviting reflection on the power dynamics and sociocultural influences that surround us. 

Challenging stereotypes, we push to reconsider and redefine the definition of Italian-ness, to stimulate debate and open new horizons of understanding.

 

Hyper*Espresso was born out of the shared experience of five Italians who met at a university abroad in Linz, Austria, where they are confronted about what about their Italian-ness unites them, and what stereotypes make them living caricatures in the eyes of others.
