Biography

Francesco Tacchini lectures in BA Graphic Design and works as an artist under the pseudonym of Demystification Committee — a collaborative practice studying the intensities of late capitalism.

The Demystification Committee recently exhibited as part of the Porto Design Biennale (PT), the 4th Istanbul Design Biennale (TR), transmediale face value (DE) and at Fotomuseum Winterthur (CH). In 2019 its film work was screened as part of Hyperdub's monthly party Ø at Corsica Studios (UK), AntiUniversity Now (UK) and at Trust Berlin (DE).

In 2019 the German label Mille Plateaux released ‘Flash Demons’, a collection of the artists’ sound performances exploring pressure and accidents on the global financial network. Recent performances were held at the Design Museum (UK), Spektrum (DE) and Onassis Cultural Centre (GR).

The Demystification Committee was the recipient of the 2017 Vilém Flusser Residency Program for Artistic Research in association with transmediale.
