MASBEDO are Nicolò Massazza (1973) and Iacopo Bedogni (1970). They live in Milan and work together since 1999. The two artists have worked together since 1999, focusing on video art and installations. They express themselves through the language of video, in different forms such as performance, theater, installation, photography and recently cinema. In Italy they are recognized among the most important video artists and innovators in the field of contemporary art. Thanks to their unique feature of re-union of different arts the multiplicity of languages becomes a single chorus. Their artistic research has focused on the theme of incommunicability, highlighting the paradox of our communication society. This has led them to produce very intimate pieces alongside work with a greater anthropological, social, and political feel. They strive to engage their audience by using the moving image as an immersive installation. MASBEDO have also worked with video-performances to engage their audience within the creative space and gestures created by the video itself. The work is a synthesis of theatre, performance, architecture, and video.
MASBEDO’S artworks are collected by many important private foundations and the following public institutions: MART Museo d’arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto. Fondazione Merz, Turin. GAM Galleria d’arte Moderna Torino, Turin. Tel Aviv Art Museum. Da2 Museum, Salamanca. CAAM Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno, Las Palmas. MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome.
