Who's really Wilfried Agricola de Cologne? Nobody knows his true
identity and his true age (he declares to be born on 1950). Surely
Wilfried Agricola de Cologne is German, born somewhere in the Black
Forest. And surely he is one of the most exceptional virtual artists
and curators ever existed, who lived and worked truly practicing a
permanent online exposure. He declares to have died as the artist
AGRICOLA on 31 December 1998 as the result of a terrorist attack and
also tells to be reborn as the artist AGRICOLA de Cologne on 1 January
2000. He is living and working since 1984 in Cologne (Germany).

MAO, Neapolitan no profit agency with an European mission that speaks
English and like to import in Italy all that would remain unknown
(while exports the best Italian practices), continues its mission to
disseminate digital culture and the most relevant topics of new arts to
Italian audience. MAO invites the German Artist de Cologne to open the
new cicle of the talks Understanding new media dedicated to the stars
of the German Scene by producing and curating an open lecture streamed
on the web as every talk offered before in Italy, where audience is
acclaiming such moments dedicated to indepth with strong quality issues
the debate on digital culture.

The seminar, entitled The network, memory and identity: a challenge for
digital art, is dedicated to explore the most recent Agricola's
projects. Agricola tells, for the first time in Italy, about his Java
Museum and the experience of [R] [R] [F]---> 200X (Remembering,
Repressing, Forgetting), a flash video festival (as well as an online
environment) that put together more than 800 artists and 50 curators of
international standing and gives evidence of how is possibile, also in
the art world, to apply the networking aptitude and culture. Curators
select a numbers of artists on a theme base, after each selection and
after the consequent online and offline exhibition, they put new
visions and new culture insights, with the creation of new memories and
connections. Therefore, after the different acquiring of further themes
of selection and after having done further editions, Agricola created a
network and an incredible database, either structural and performative
- that is filled by all the viewpoint of the participating
artists/curators but mainly assuring infinite other collective and
rizhome-based visions. Since 2004, the festival selected just two
themes, the memory and the identity, that are the core of the talk,
curated by MAO, that the artist will offer on December 12, in Naples,
starting at 4 pm. The lecture will be the first European occasion to
appreciate the festival results, because it has been closed and just
presented to MACRO (Museum de Arte Contemporaneo, Rosario, Argentina),
on last November 14. So MAO offers, according to its mission, an
absolute preview, that could be easily followed from each part of the
world by the web streaming on mediartsoffice.eu website.

Agricola will be introduced by the MAO curators, that will announce
also the next no profit projects. To give the salutation of the
collaborating University, the madam professor Jocelyne Vincent,
Director of Dipartimento di studi americani, culturali e linguistici of
Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale", together with Tiziana
Terranova, culture media and film science of the Essex University (UK),
visiting professor to the department managed by Professor Vincent
thanks to the "brain incentives" programme dedicated by Italian
Ministry of Education to the mobility return of Italian researcher
