Artist info

Johan Moorman

The spatial worlds of Johan Moorman are reminiscent of classic arcade games, the works of Dutch graphic artist Escher, and old Lego (Danish toys) catalogues. Moorman’s graphics and murals are undeniably Anti-Design, yet elegant in color, lines, and design language. Johan Moorman (1979) finds inspiration in retro-futuristic images, architecture, music, and technological innovation: Moorman was the one to design the poster for the legendary 2013 Kraftwerk 3D concert series in former technology museum Evoluon in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Johan Moorman started his career as a graffiti artist from the Dutch ‘city of light’. He likes to explore and didn’t stop experimenting, neither in style nor multimedia use. He grew up in a city built on technology and design, and later graduated from the renowned Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The artist is influenced by De Stijl (neoplasticism), Pop art, and the Memphis Group / Postmodernism. Time seems to have frozen in some of his works. They feel like playgrounds that perfectly balance objects and shapes - an adventurous world that needs to be explored.

Roberto Conte

Roberto Conte (Monza, 1980), started to take pictures in 2006, exploring abandoned places in the outskirts of Milan, before traveling around Italy and abroad looking for derelict sites. In the years he increasingly focused on photographing architectures, with a particular preference for the XX century, from rationalist structures to post-war modernism and contemporary architecture, including brutalism and Soviet modernism. He collaborates with architecture and design studios, institutions, and artists (as Edoardo Tresoldi, Gonzalo Borondo, Alberonero). In 2019 he published the book “Soviet Asia” (FUEL, co-authored with Stefano Perego), focused on the Soviet modernist architectures in Central Asia. His pictures have been featured in several online and printed magazines and books, as “Atlas of Brutalist Architecture”, “This Brutal World”, “Ruin and Redemption in Architecture” (Phaidon Press), “Concrete Concept” (Frances Lincoln), the Yerevan Guide of Architecture (DOM publishers) and many others. He held lectures about architecture photography in several universities in Italy, Denmark, and Russia. . . .

Roberto Conte (Monza, 1980), ha iniziato a scattare foto nel 2006, esplorando luoghi abbandonati alla periferia di Milano, prima iniziare a viaggiare per l'Italia e all'estero alla ricerca di siti dismessi.

Negli anni il suo interesse si è focalizzato sulla fotografia di architetture, con una particolare predilezione per il XX secolo, dalle strutture razionaliste al modernismo del dopoguerra e all'architettura contemporanea, passando per il brutalismo e il modernismo sovietico.

Collabora con studi di architettura e design, istituzioni e artisti (tra cui Edoardo Tresoldi, Gonzalo Borondo, Alberonero). Nel 2019 ha pubblicato il libro “Soviet Asia” (FUEL, co-autore con Stefano Perego), incentrato sulle architetture moderniste sovietiche dell'Asia centrale.

Le sue immagini sono state pubblicate su numerose riviste e libri, sia digitali che non, come "Atlas of Brutalist Architecture", "This Brutal World", "Ruin and Redemption in Architecture" (Phaidon Press), "Concrete Concept" (Frances Lincoln), "Yerevan Guide of Architecture" (editori DOM) e molti altri.
