inCf n°1

By Luca Santese

inCf is an independent magazine. Each issue is entrusted to a different editor in chief who proposes the theme and with whom the editorial staff defines the editorial line and develops the contents. This first issue is directed by Luca Santese, photographer and co-founder of the Cesura collective.

The magazine is structured in three parts: the first one is a presentation of the editor, of the theme and in-depth articles about the chosen topic, a central part entrusted to the editor and a third one edited by the inCf editorial staff. For this launch issue, Luca Santese involved two editors at large, Nicola Patruno and Nicola Turrini, respectively founder of the art hub Jergon in Berlin and researcher in theoretical philosophy at the University of Verona. With them Santese chose to address the topic of Recording-Based Media, that is, all those technical devices that have the ability to fix on a specific support a visual and/or acoustic phenomenon and, consequently, to reproduce it in a potentially infinite way.

“Given the paper nature of the magazine, it was a matter of declining this vast container in the field of visual arts, with particular reference to photographic production but without neglecting some reflections in the field of sound.” Luca Santese

This issue investigates the artistic, cultural and social impact that these devices have had in the past, in our present and the future prospects that technological development offers us. With this in mind, the first section of the issue examines projects such as Scarti by the artistic duo Broomberg and Chanarin, the great archiving work of Ando Gilardi through the Fototeca Storica Nazionale, the multi-reality sound of the independent label ArteTetra and the possibilities of Computer-generated imagery of the Sturm&Drang project developed by the Fondazione Prada in collaboration with ETH Zurich. The central part hosts the results of the residency of young photographers curated by Luca Santese and two of his unpublished projects while, in the third and last part, the editorial staff of inCf reflects on the representation of reality through the works of visual artists Alex Valentina, Sara Scanderebech and Daniele Villa Zorn.
