Marco Baravalle is a central figure at S.a.L.E. Docks, an independent space for visual arts, activism, and experimental theater located in what had been an abandoned salt-storage facility in Dorsoduro, Venice, Italy. Founded in 2007, its programming includes activist-group meetings, formal exhibitions, and screenings. S.a.L.E. Docks was instrumental in assisting Gulf Labor Coalition at this year’s Venice Biennial. Baravalle also researches creative labor and how art is positioned within neoliberal economics.
