Nostalgia.exe
Nostalgia.exe is a research about Vaporwave movement that I’ve presented as bachelor final project at the Academy of Fine Arts. Its purpose is to talk about a subject that is not well known, as Vaporwave is still an internet movement, which is slowly becoming viral and affecting other realities.




Nostalgia.exe is divided into two different parts: 

The first part is dedicated to how the subculture of Vaporwave was born, its influences, its similarities with other realities and how it slowly became an artistic movement. It also wants to answer to a question: is Vaporwave just a trend or is going to influence always more? 




The second part wants to give a pratical answer to this question, with a project of a Vaporwave exhibition designed for a small art gallery in Bologna. In this exhibition, called “Nostalgia”, a series of works from international artists are divided into five different rooms, all with a specific theme.




It’s not easy to find enough information about this topic in a same pubblication, that’s why Nostalgia.exe tries to deal with all the aspects of Vaporwave, from its origin to its possible future and transformation, passing through its present influences on art, tv and so on.
