Art critic, academic and painter Dorfles grew up in Trieste in a vibrant intellectual milieu which included the novelist Italo Svevo. In 1948, as a practising artist, he helped to form MAC, the Movimento Arte Concreta (see arte concreta). He subsequently taught aesthetics at Italian and foreign universities and in 1995 participated in the organization of the Venice Biennale.
