Valentina Bonizzi

Digging into archives and communities, Valentina Bonizzi’s work highlights issues of social justice while trying to offer careful and thoughtful resolutions. Most of her research investigates and uncovers the potentialities of democratization that lay in the artistic re-definition of cartographic practices. Her work explores the role of the image in all its expanded forms considering the politics of time in relation to hybridity, migration and the environment. Valentina works with film, photography, sound, radio and performative intervention with music and dialogues.
Among others Bonizzi exhibited at the British School at Rome, the National Galleries of Scotland, Stills Gallery and Fondazione Fotografia Modena. She has presented her work in a number of institutions such as Ramallah Academy of the Arts, Akademie der Kunste, Berlin, Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, Visual Research Centre, Dundee, National Archive and Record Administration, Washington. Bonizzi has published with the Journal for Flusser Studies (What legitimates photography?) and the Mauritious Catalogue of the Venice Biennal: When you realised you were a: White. European. Male. She completed an AHRC funded PhD titled: Cartographers: a practice based investigation on memory, conflict and the aerial image. She collaborates with Glasgow Refugee Asylum Migration Network, DAAR (Palestine), Mnemoscape Magazine and Free Academy of the Arts (ALA Group), Rome.
