    Airwaves LP, 1977

    Contributed by Juan Pablo Macías for the Airchive.


is a collaborative project that works as an online-offline content hub on (the) air, on atmosphere, on environment, on breathing.

Air is an element that determines all forms of life and ON AIR dedicates a platform that connects, collects and promotes different contents and creative researches on (the) air —an element of commonality that does not exclude bodies, but takes care of them.

ON AIR was born in a precise epochal moment in which breathing is no longer taken for granted. At the center of political and economic disputes that “pollute” its transparency, air contains within itself the possibility of a change that is cultural, social as ecological: it is an element that pervades our imagination and establishes a relationship between us and the cosmos.

Because everything takes form ON AIR we have decided to
map it through an airchive
to talk about it in air columns
inhale it through air time
blow it into airquakes

ON AIR is an open space in which to return several times, following individual reading paths —that are visual, mythological, historical-philosophical, technological, as well as poetical — with the hope of influencing the perception of our context and reconfiguring our environment.

ON AIR is a project by Juan Pablo Macías & Alessandra Poggianti for Carico Massimo with the support of Centro Per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci / Regione Toscana / Comune di Livorno

ON AIR skyscapes_on cloud-life is a derivative work from inversión de escena, the background of the site updates several times a day as long as ON AIR is up in the cloud.

Arturo Hernández Alcázar

(Mexico City, 1978) He investigates processes of a destructive and erosive nature and the form that our environment and our relationships with the world take from these collisions. His work reacts to the current context from a poetics of the accident and from the crossing of archives, residual materials, sound, publications, meetings, seminars and other media; with it, he tries to outline a syntax to be read after the accident that the modern world has created.

Babi Badalov

(Lerik, 1959) stateless, originating from Azerbaijan, a country at the lace between orient and occident, between postcommunism and neo-capitalism, his work is materialized by encounters between cultures, geographies and languages. Calligraphies, images, objects, sounds, dreams are all the palimpsest of a wandering figure in a fragmented Babylon.

Benedetta Chiari

(San Miniato, 1998) laureata all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, è un’artista visiva che esplora nel paesaggio e nelle pratiche quotidiane un legame identitario.

Daniele Di Girolamo

(Pescara, 1995) his research focuses on the relationship between natural processes and human activities that take place in the landscape and the dynamics of interpretation that derive from these. In particular, he wants to investigate the point of contact between the physical elements that make up this relationship and the affective associations that they can evoke.


(b. 2006) Working as a group springs from engaging in an artistic practice centered on discussion and on the clash of ideas and forms of action. DEMOCRACIA works as a node of interests grouped temporarily for the development of the same objective, which is approached from different perspectives: those of each one of the participants in the project, being these the different agents that shape DEMOCRACIA.

Filippo Leonardi

(Catania, 1970) Through the exploration of the concept of identity and the relationship between art and nature, the artist’s practice develops in cycles of works (installations, sculptures, videos and participatory interventions) which address different aspects of one same concept: looking at the world with a not exclusively anthropocentric gaze, recognizing the distinct perspective of the non-human: animal and vegetable.

Gustav Metzger

(1926-2017) was a visionary artist and radical thinker. At the heart of his practice, which spanned over 65 years, are a series of constantly opposing yet interdependent forces such as destruction and creation. Metzger’s involvement in anti-nuclear movements such as the Committee of 100 and his life-long activism to combat environmental destruction was fundamental to his provocative questioning of the role of artist and of conventional forms of artmaking and display…

Hans Schabus

(Watschig, 1970) is known for his ambitious site-specific projects in which he incorporates the location and the institution. The sculptural interventions by Schabus intermediate between himself and what surrounds him. His studio is his matrix, a place of exploration, processing and inspiration - a place of an “in-between” with its own temporality in which things undergo continuous change.

Jean-Luc Moulène

(Reims, 1955) a self-declared technicien libertaire, creates work that is stylistically ambulatory yet bounded by specific conceptual parameters: it must be separate and complete in itself; make clear the conditions under which it was produced; and establish a direct link with that from which it has been separated—which is to say, the world.

Jiří Kovanda

(1953) has organised his first performances in public environments in Prague in the mid-1970’s. His minimal actions, all based on a detailed scenario, were all recorded through photography in black and white and instruction leaflets.

Veit Stratmann

(Bochum 1960) Here are a few questions that keep me going: can an artistic gesture be based on the notions of choice, of decision-making by the viewer, of the posture of those who encounter the artwork? Can this decision-making become constructive material? If I assume that decision-making is the smallest unit of political and social action, can an encounter with art generate a permanent oscillation between a political and an aesthetical statement/gesture?
