Filippo Berta was born in 1977 in Treviglio, Italy.
His artistic research shows the social tensions caused by the relationship between individuals and their belonging societies. The boundaries that define this dialectical condition, often conflictual and problematic, are the topic of his works. His attention to these social disharmony translates into works characterized by the exaltation of small daily gestures, presented in such a way as to unmask the differences, tensions and oppositions. His works mainly are collective performances, often summarized in a single iconographic image and in short and essential videos.
