Richard John Jones is an artist based in Amsterdam. Jones was co-director of the artist-run space Auto Italia South East in London between 2011 and 2012. His work explores the formation of community and strategies for autonomy. Drawing on the history of anti-assimilationist queer movements, Italian Autonomia and contemporary forms of withdrawal, he is questioning how these interact with our contemporary preoccupation with visibility as a key emancipatory paradigm.
