Who is Bäst? Who is this artist without a face, without a name and, apparently, without an identity? READ THE ARTICLE Valeria Furlan
Bäst: is a word that appears for more than 15 years through Brooklin's streets, behind which, as Michael Toomral writes in the catalog, there is an heir of posting and overlapping practices, that take to the re-inscription of the identity of the work-place, conceals itself.
We only know that he is American, that uses the pseudonym of Bäst and that, with his artworks, he brought for the first time in Trento the most authentic spirit of Brooklyn.
Today the practice of cultural nomadism, as well as the "deterritorialisation" (to put it with Gilles Deleuze's words), namely the wandering of tastes, traditions, of ideas themselves, informs most of contemporary art.
