Maria Iorio and Raphaël Cuomo

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 1 October – 31 December 2018

Maria Iorio
and Raphaël Cuomo are an artist duo based in Geneva and Berlin. In recent years, their collaborative artistic practice involving long-term research has investigated the economies of visibility in relation to past and present mobility regimes in the southern and northern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Their latest projects examine the intertwined histories of migration and cinema and manifest a counter-memory of the “economic miracle”. The resulting body of work brings together films, performative moments, collected documents and architectural displays. Iorio/Cuomo’s practice includes a curatorial approach. They are currently focusing on decolonial “minor cinemas” and they previously curated Unfinished Histories – Histoires en devenir, a series of exhibitions, screenings and talks that revisited the historiographies of the expanded field of moving image practices. Iorio/Cuomo have shown their work in various exhibitions and film festivals, including Documenta 14 Public Program (Athens); If Not For That Wall (CiC, Cairo); Quadriennale 16 (Rome); Visions du réel (Nyon); Logica del passaggio (Querini Stampalia, Venice); Europe. The Future of History (Kunsthaus Zürich); FID (Marseille); Twisted Realism (Argos, Brussels); Courtisane Festival (Ghent); Chewing the Scenery (54th Venice Biennale); Der Standpunkt der Aufnahme, (Arsenal, Berlin); The Maghreb Connection (Townhouse Gallery, Cairo).
