Diana Pacelli (1982) Born in Naples, Diana Pacelli is a German-Italian visual artist living and working in Berlin. Her research is based on the interpretation of identity as a socially determined superstructure and focuses in her most recent works on historical suppression as an agent of collective memory, while understanding artistic practice as a practice of complexity. Her mediums span from interventions in public space to photography and installations, while performance has central role in her practice. After investigating on the connections between denunciation and deportation in the Italian context of WW2, she is currently working on the role of white in fascist colonialism.
With an academic education in Humanities (BA and MA) and Public Art (MfA), Diana Pacelli has participated in numerous exhibitions and art residencies in European and non-European countries. Her works can be found at the Fossoli Foundation (IT), Kramators'k Museum of Contemporary Art (UA) and the municipal collection of Paduli (IT), and contribute to the Bibliothek der Künstlerinnen initiative (DE).
