Through research-driven approaches Radical Intention expands the horizon of possibilities for collective experiences/actions focusing on the affinity between the social-political and artistic practice.
Collaborative research, activism, alternative education, gatherings and the politics of hospitality play a continuing and vital role within the methodology and concepts of the group.
Maria Pecchioli and Aria Spinelli started Radical Intention in order to investigate new forms of interaction and exchange in the context of visual arts.
They aimed at breaking the boundaries between public and private domain by trying to activate experiential and self-reflexive moments of sharing. Through simply practicing convivial debates, they created intense moments of knowledge exchange around the practice of art.
The groups’ identity has been defined by their interest and methodologies, used and furthered in each project by creating temporary situations of evolution and discovery.
Up until today, they have developed collaborations and produced projects with the intention to experiment and investigate new territories and places in their specificity, detaching themselves from a unique space of agency.
