Filippo Berta's artistic research highlights the social tensions caused by the relationship between individuals and their societies to which they belong. The boundaries that define this dialectical condition, often conflictual and problematic, are a matter of questioning in his works. His attention to these social disharmonies 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 are mainly collective performances, summarized in a single iconographic image and in short and essential videos.
