Accattone explores the minor practices of the world of art and architecture through the specific means of the print magazine.
Considered as a sort of exhibition on paper, each issue brings together a series of contributions whose shared positions towards reality, history and its representation resonate with one another.
In the panorama of non-commercial publications, Accattone's originality lies in its strong visual orientation and high degree of experimentation, which crosses the methods of artists-iconographers with emerging architectural practices.
Accattone is an independent magazine born in 2014 from an idea by architects Sophie Dars and Carlo Menon and graphic designers Ismaël Bennani and Orfée Grandhomme, joined in 2019 by architect Galaad Van Daele. Through six issues and several collateral projects, the magazine has obtained several international awards.
