1974 · France
Ranging from large multimedia installations to small drawings in pen, Giuseppe Stampone’s work is a form of political protest. By introducing an alternative social-political agenda and creating community-based interventions, he probes his audience by encouraging meditation on immigration, climate change, and war. In addition to the creation of art, Stampone is the founder of Solstizio, a network co-financed by the European Union to bring global contemporary themes into multiple generations of artistic production in numerous countries.
Born in France in 1974, Guiseppe Stampone now lives and works between Rome and Brussels. In 2013 he was a fellow at the American Academy in Rome and was awarded the art residency at the Young Eun Museum of Contemporary Art in Gwangju, South Korea.
