Francesco Jodice: Dubai Citytellers. Screening followed by a conversation between Francesco Jodice and Alfredo Cramerotti.

On the occasion of Photo London (at Somerset House 17-20 May) the Italian Cultura Instittute is pleased to host the screening of Francesco Jodice’ s Dubai Citytellers, a film trilogy about new forms of urbanisation, followed by a conversation between Francesco Jodice and Alfredo Cramerotti.

The exchange between the artist Francsco Jodice and the curator Alfredo Cramerotti is centred on the question of “fragments”. What we usually expect is a linear explanation of the phenomena we encounter (in the Western philosophical tradition) but in reality there are areas of our existence that we can only give meaning to by approaching them in a circular way.The snapshot of a system (in this case, a given society) is also the snapshot of the people who compose it, and especially of the artist who works on “giving sense” to that system in which he is living.


Francesco Jodice’s art explores the transforming social landscape of our time, with a particular focus on urban anthropological phenomena and the creation of new participatory processes. His projects are aimed at building a common ground between art and geopolitics, presenting artistic practice as a form of civil poetic.
He teaches at the biennial program in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies and at the MA in Photography and Visual Design at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
He was among the founders of collectives Multiplicity and Zapruder.
He has been in major group exhibitions such as Documenta, the Venice Biennial, the São Paulo Biennial, the ICP Triennial in New York, and has shown his work at the Castello di Rivoli (Turin), Tate Modern (London) and the Prado (Madrid).
His main projects include What We Want, a photographic atlas surveying landscape as a projection of people desires; The Secret Traces, a urban experimental archive on shadowing; and Citytellers, a film trilogy about new forms of urbanisation. His most recent works— Atlante, American Recordings and Sunset Boulevard—explore the future of the Western World.
