“Gandolfo Gabriele David’s work reveals the ontological necessity to establish an ethical and political dimension of hospitality between cultures and societies in contemporary artistic production. This ontological necessity has led his interests to reflect on hospitality as the modernist idea that encourages all human beings regardless of their political affiliation attempt to be citizens in a single community, taking into consideration topics such as immigration, diaspora, and negotiation of identities, David increases the importance of the analysis on the problem of the immigration policies in his artistic practises. These premises could be particularly suitable for setting the parameters of a possible or impossible ethics of hospitality in Art Theory.”  MODESTA DI PAOLA
