Matteo Zoccolo is a research-based conceptual artist currently interested in questions of (non-)representation, relational art, sound as political tool, orientalism and post-colonial studies. He lived in Jerusalem for the past year and developed there a critical thinking about the production and use of images, also regarding postmodernist theories and the Palestinian-Israeli struggle.
He is now exploring alternatives to documentary practices, especially focusing on sound, participatory practices and performance.
