Neïl Beloufa is an Algerian and French artist whose practice spans film, sculpture, and installation. His work assembles and combines existing cultural phenomena and technologies into scenarios that blur fiction and reality, and where the influences of control are revealed and interrogated. With the recent changes in the cultural realm, Beloufa and his production company Bad Manners are developing new forms of production and distribution of digital content. Beloufa’s exhibition, Digital Mourning and the online narrative game screen-talk.com are being hosted at the Pirelli Hangar Bicocca SHED, Milan, until January 2022. Later this year, After 8 Books, Paris will publish Beloufa’s first monograph, People Love War Data and Travels (2021). Bad Manners (Paris, Miami, Ibiza) is a production company focused on uncommon digital broadcasting. The company directly finances its projects and is exploring the realms of micro-finance, crowdfunding and the expansion of partnerships to produce digital works, websites, artworks, mini-series and films.
