JOAN FONTCUBERTA

ARTIST

Charles_G.jpg

„Joan Fontcuberta is a conceptual artist from Barcelona, whose best-known works, such as Fauna and Sputnik, examine the truthfulness of art and photography. As an entrepreneur, iconoclast and provocateur, Joan has been playing with photography, media and authenticity since the mid-1980s. Fontcuberta’s energy in producing works and turning conventions in the art world upside down is admirable. In addition, he is a writer, editor, teacher and curator. He is a great influence for a young generation of artists who like to add storytelling to their works. Joan is someone who gets younger and more playful the longer he is around."
