Antonio Lucci was a postdoctoral fellow within the research group (B-3) Oikonomia/Economy.
He graduated from the University of Trieste with a Ph.D. in Philosophy in 2012. Before joining Topoi, he taught at the Institute for Cultural History and Theory of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and worked as an assistant for the chair of Philosophy and Problems of Intersubjectivity at the SAPIENZA University of Rome and he worked as a guest lecturer for Aesthetics of New Media at the New Academy of Fine Arts (NABA) in Milan. In the summer term of 2016 he held the deputy professorship in Cultural Theory and Aesthetics on behalf of Prof. Dr. Iris Därmann.
Antonio Lucci spent the years preceding the cooperation with Topoi studying Peter Sloterdijk and has published numerous contributions on his philosophy in various books and magazines. His research focuses on the concepts of “feedback” and “cultural technique” in the history of civilization, on the philosophy of technology, on the relationship between economics and asceticism as well as on the epistemology of science-fiction.
In Topoi he worked on a project named “Archaeology – Oikonomia – Asceticism”. Based on the work of Giorgio Agamben he examined the question of “economic theology”. The outcomes of the research in Topoi brought to the organisation of the conference “From administratio to governmentality. Techniques and strategies of the administration of the self and the other between Middle Age and present times”.
