Book Launch: Endless by Valerio Rocco Orlando
Through what kind of relationships can you imagine a better society? Starting from this question, ISCP alum Valerio Rocco Orlando will lead a discussion about relationships, community awareness, and collective and individual identity with the public and current ISCP residents. A selection of writings developed during this discussion will be included in the forthcoming edition of the book Endless.
Endless (Mousse Publishing, 2011) is an open book, a shared portrait that will be composed over time, recounting stories, relationships and visions through the different experiences of Orlando’s life with texts and contributions by Caroline Corbetta, Maria Paola Fimiani, Gilbert & George, Liam Gillick, Corrado Levi, Jean-Luc Nancy, Valerio Rocco Orlando, Mario Perniola, Ugo Rondinone and Luigi Zoja.

Valerio Rocco Orlando won the ISCP New York Prize 2009 promoted by Parc/Seat/Gai and a Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellowship in Visual Arts in 2011.
