Biography

Anna Rispoli is an Italian artist and director, who lives and works in Brussels. She was a member of the artists collective ZimmerFrei, who participated in international festivals and exhibitions such as the 50th Biennale di Venezia, Manifesta 07, Biennale Valencia, Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, Visions du Réel Nyon, Festival Internationale del Film di Roma, Torino Film Festival, or Film Fest Gent. Anna Rispoli works across the boundaries of the artistic creation with civil space, making a performative use of the urban fabric in order to explore the relationship between humans, cities, and identities. Her works include Les Marches de la Bourse in which she reunited political activists of the last fifty years in a meta-demonstration claiming the right to demonstrate, her series of light shows Vorrei tanto tornare a casa about an apartment block’s residents’ attitude towards cohabitation, and the Waterfront Cycle with pieces produced in Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Kortrijk and Abu Dhabi. In the 2020 project A certain value, Rispoli developed a participative performance out of her research exploring mutualization practices developed by five European communities. Anna Rispoli is part of Common Wallet, a union of Brussels-based artists with a practice of economic solidarity.
