Sunday February 7, 4-6pm
Discussing current experimental and conceptual approaches to publishing and architecture, with Giovanni Piovene (San Rocco); Carlo Menon (Accattone) & Frida Escobedo.
Moderation: Erica Overmeer (NL)
Accattone, is a new and independent editorial project based in Brussels concerned with documents in architecture. Different kinds of information, drawings, images, texts, are dealt with on the same level of importance, and considered part of a creative process that finally results in a magazine.

Frida Escobedo is a Mexican architect working in Mexico City, using publications as a conceptual tool of communication in her practice.
San Rocco is an independent Italian magazine on architecture. Its content is collected through open calls, specified by challenging and intriguing statements of the editors. The predetermined and wildly diverse themes of each issue often seems only remotely related to architecture, redefining boundaries of the architectural field and its conventional modes communication.
