Luca Faccio works primarily with an analog, medium-format camera without a tripod. In “Common Ground” he showed cultural parallels between North and South Korea: “It is the artist’s gaze that carries us into the culture and lives of the people,” says Eva Schlegel. Faccio immersed himself in Vienna’s Thursday demonstrations between 2000 and 2003 to capture the mood during this major postwar political movement. A selection of the resulting works will be presented by Marcello Farabegoli at Verein 08.
