Vittore BARONI (Italy)

Vittore Baroni (1956, Forte dei Marmi, Italy) network artist, musician, musical critic, publisher. He began his creative literary and artistic activities in 1970. The acquiaintance with G. A. Cavellini (1977) encouraged the emergence of the intermedia productions, and involvement in the International Network Culture (since 1977 Baroni has annualy participated in several dozens of international projects). In 1979 he organised the first international exhibitions of mail art, visual poetry and copy art in the Forte dei Marmi Town Library, and published the first issue of the magazine Arte Postale! (later one of the most significant network magazines of the 1980-90s, with varied style orientation ranging from post-fluxus and neo-dada to different radical inclusions actionism, appropriart, neoism and so on). Since 1980 he has been very active in the area of plagiart, has released LPs and MCs under various pseudonyms (such as Lieutenant Murnau and others); he started regular publishing of visual poems, artists stamps, artists books (most part of them is kept in the collection of The Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, Miami, USA). Baroni is one of the organisers of the international multimedia-group Trax (1981-87, collected audio-visual productions and presented them in the form of books, portfolios, LP and MC editions, the final catalogue of the project is in the book Last Trax). In 1989-90 he wrote and published a number of books on contemporary musical culture (also took part in the development of the basic edition Enciclopedia Rock Anni 80 (Arcana Editrice)), books about creative activities of such groups as The Residents, Psychic TV. In 1991 he joined the musical project Le Forbici di Manitù (M. Rossi, E. Marani, V. Baroni), being a member of which he released six albums, among them are the following ones: Quadrielogue (CD, Bari: Disturbance/Minus Habens Ed., 1995), Trivelogue (CD, Amsterdam: Staalplaat Ed., 1996), Le Forbici di Manitù play & remix Lt. Murnau (CD, Portland: Soleilmoon/Earthly Delights, 1999) and others. In 1992 in collaboration with P. Ciani he established The Stickerman Museum, dedicated to all forms of adhesive-art and a musical periodical Rumore (jointly with C. Sorge and A. Campo). In 1996 Baroni founded (jointly with P. Ciani) a publishing house AAA Editions, that specialises in publishing of communication productions, booklets and books on musical (from ambient-industrial and techno-symphonic to classical trends) and fine art, including such as Luther Blissett. Totò, Peppino a la guerra psichica; Stewart Home. Assalto alla cultura; Vittore Baroni. Arte Postale; John Held Jr. Rubber Stamp Art; Autori Vari Falso è vero and others. V. Baroni is the author of numerous visual poetry publications in magazines, catalogues, books and anthologies both in Italy and abroad, of a number of articles on the contemporary art, of more than forty collaborative books of poems. He is the co-ordinator of the conceptual network project Incongruous Meeting 98 (1998), curator of the network section of the retrospective exhibition of the XXth century avant-garde at the Museum of Modern Art (Bassano del Grappa, 2000).
