Accattone #4

Accattone is a new and independent magazine on architecture started in 2014. Based in Brussels and self-published by two architects and two graphic designers, Accattone explores ‘minor’ practices in architecture through the specific means of the printed magazine. Accattone addresses critically a fundamental aspect of architectural thinking and practice: the working document and the changing status of the image in the design process.

Accattone’s interest lays in a hybrid cross-fertilisation of disciplines and approaches, that work very well within the format of a magazine and make sense while aleatory leafing the pages, emphasized by an editing that subtly diffuses the distinctions of the diverse contributions.

The latest issue of Accattone #4 draws on the idea of the collection to explore mythical methods and visual ethnographies in contemporary practices, with an interest in the compression, into a single artifact, of long periods of history, power relations, memories, and everyday experience. It features anthropology museums, underground data centers and minor collections performed in private houses, double-sided masks, and architectural strata in a floor slab or a facade, totemic mock-ups on a 1:1 scale and metaphors in the desert.

With contributions by Frida Escobedo, photos by Kristien Daem and Philippe Braquenier, a return on an installation by Ištvan Išt Huzjan with Sam Steverlynck, Frank Tuytschaever and Jurgen Vergotte, a visit to Pierre Leguillon’s Museum of Mistakes and ARU’s visit to an house by Peter Märkli, an interview with 51N4E, photos of Camille Henrot’s installation The Pale Fox, essays by Cédric Libert and Freek Persyn, models and mock-ups by Bruther, XDGA, CAB, Barthélémy-Griño, Michel Desvigne.

I. about
    Index, the first art book fair in Mexico focused on independent publishers.
Encompassing Mexican, South American and European art publishers through collaborations with celebrated and established fairs, Index aims to bring to wider attention editorial projects centered around contemporary art that lack big distribution as well as open a space for dialogue and exchange within the context of Mexico.
    Index assembles an exciting program of events that include exhibitions, conferences, workshops, and more, providing a unique opportunity for editors and the wider public alike to discover, enjoy and discuss the cutting edge of art publishing today.
