Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck Biography

Since the mid-nineties Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck has developed a hybrid practice that incorporates the activities of a researcher, archivist, historian and curator. Working across various mediums, his productions formally resemble or incorporate the works of others; stressing notions of authorship and cultural authority. His entangled narratives follow strict methodological rules that are inspired by the unusual relationships he establishes between different realms and disciplines. In his works he aims to reveal the political strategies and motives at work in the world by analyzing the dynamics of power and propaganda in modern history and aesthetics.
