Bio
Exhibitions

Francesco Jodice was born in Naples in 1967. He lives and works in Milan.
He graduated as an architect and began his artistic activity in 1995. From his very first works, undertaken in a specifically urban area, he has concentrated on an analysis of the new relationships between social behaviour and the urban landscape in various geographical areas. For his works he makes use of different media and combines photography and video with writing and the creation of maps. In 2000 he was one of the founders of Multiplicity, an international network of architects and artists which develops interdisciplinary researches into the processes governing the transformation of the condition of cities.
Since 2004 he has been professor of the theory and practice of the technical image at the University of Bolzano and, since 2005, he has taught visual urban anthropology at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan.
He has participated in important exhibitions throughout the world. Among his recent solo shows we should mention Film retrospective – Fair Play, Kunsthalle, Lugano, 2008; I can see
your house from here, Museion, Bolzano, 2009; Dubai Citytellers, Museo Nacional Centro de
Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Citytellers, MAMbo, Bologna, 2010. Among recent group shows are the Liverpool Biennale, 2004; I luoghi e l’anima, Palazzo Reale, Milan, 2005; Saison italienne, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, Ecotopia, International Centre of Photography, New York; XXVII Bieñal de São Paulo, Brazil, 2006; Global Cities, Tate Modern, London, 2007; Stories on Human Rights shown at the XXI Tokyo Film Festival and at the Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris, Per una collezione di fotografia, Castello di Rivoli, L’Alba di Domani, Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, Istanbul, Post-it City, CCCB, Barcelona, 2008; Da Gua – rene all’Etna, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo,

Together with Multiplicity he has also taken part in Documenta 11, Kassel, 2002; the X International
Biennale of Photography, Turin, and the 50th Venice Biennale, 2003. He has published a number of books, including Mutations (Barcelona: Actar, 2000), Instant City (Milan: Baldini&Castoldi, 2001), Side Effects (Cinisello Balsamo: Silvana Editoriale, 2002), What We Want (Milan: Skira, 2004).
