about the author:
Renato Barilli, critic and literary historian of Italian art was born in Bologna in 1935; he teaches aesthetics and art history at the University of Bologna. Barilli came to fame in the 1960s, part of a new European avant-garde movement that culminated in what came to be called "Group 63". As a literary critic, he was associated with, among other things, the French nouveau roman, the contemporary Italian fiction and the latest trends of the avant-garde poetry. As an art critic, has covered cutting-edge aesthetics, from pop art to body art and his work is particularly focused on the avant-garde and the relationship between art and technology, and in particular between art and computers.
In 1996 he published an impressive essay "The Dawn of the Contemporary: European Art from Fiissli to Delacroix", which analyzes some of the most important examples of modern and contemporary art. In "Comedy of Kafka" (1999), Barilli gives an interpretation of Freud's reading of the famous German writer.
