Bulletin #17. Non Academic Paper: Stressed, Blessed and Coffee Obsessed, curated by Vincenzo Estremo and Débora Delmar
Issue published on the occasion of Débora Delmar’s exhibition Stressed, Blessed and Coffee Obsessed at Gallleriapiù, Bologna.
Vincenzo Estremo and Débora Delmar compiled a text that expands the discourse around Delmar’s current exhibition at Gallleriapiù. The project aims to investigate the practice of the Mexican artist, as well as social and political issues connected to the dissemination of cafés in Europe and Latin America.

Non Academic Paper is one of three formats in Droste Effect’s publication Bulletin. Non Academic Papers aim to investigate what lays beyond the contemporary artwork.

About the authors:

Débora Delmar (1986, Mexico City) lives and works in London, where she is completing the Postgraduate Programme at the Royal Academy of Arts. Through her artwork, Delmar investigates consumer culture, capitalist lifestyles, and aspirational aesthetics. She is particularly focused on the societal effects of globalization such as class issues and cultural hegemony. Delmar creates multi-sensory installations that are usually composed of elements such as fabricated and appropriated objects, reproductions of iPhone photographs, and elements such as scent, sound and performance, as well as online interventions.

Vincenzo Estremo is a writer, an art critic, and an independent curator. He holds a Ph.D. in Audiovisual Studies: Cinema, Music, and Communication at Udine University and Kunstuniversität Linz, while previously he studied History of Art at “Carlo Bò” University in Urbino. Estremo is currently a lecturer for NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan. He is editor-in-chief of Droste Effect Magazine and a regular contributor for Objektive, Arte&Critica, Juliet and Camera Austria. Estremo has curated exhibitions in Europe and collaborated with several museums and art institutions, such as IMMA Dublin, MAMBO Bologna, Chiado Lisbon, and Kunsthalle Vienna.
