Participating in the next edition of the Rototom Sunsplash will be one of the most contemporary and influential philosophers when it comes to theories and activism related to the media. We are of course talking about the Italian, Franco Berardi ‘Bifo’ who will participate in the session “Does humanism have a future in the 21st Century?”.
An activist since May 68, Berardi founded the magazine A/traverse (1975-1981) and was a member of Radio Alice –the mother of all Italian pirate radios-. He also founded Tv Orfeo –the first community television in Italy-.
Like many other intellectuals that participated in the autonomous political movement in Italy, the 70’s he left for Paris. There, he worked with philosophers and intellectuals such as Félix Guattari. While, in 1978 he had to leave for New York fleeing the triumph of neoliberalism in Italy.
