Lucas Pretti

Independent artist
Barcelona, Spain
Lucas Pretti is a Brazilian-born artist, activist, editor, and researcher. Most of his work builds on the interrelations between media, technology, and power through a variety of different mediums and techniques. He played an important role in the city's occupation collectives in the early 2010s, having co-created and co-led the BaixoCentro movement in São Paulo. Author of “Poetics of the Commons” (2017) and “Devastação” (2020), lately Pretti is particularly interested in exercising a critical standpoint of the South about techno-capitalism and its post-colonial faces. He holds a master's degree in arts (IA-Unesp), a bachelor's degree in communications (FAAC-Unesp), and attended MACBA's PEI - Independent Studies Program. Currently based in Barcelona, he is also the director of global communications at the Change.org Foundation.
