Following-up from the themes explored in issue #6, Accattone and its team present a territorial, post-sedentary ‘villa’ dedicated to the tutelary figure of Greta Thunberg, that confronts the changing climate regime through the human, plant and animal migrations it entails.(see Villa Thunberg’s page)A project by Accattone magazine (Ismaël Bennani, Sophie Dars, Orfée Grandhomme, Carlo Menon, Galaad Van Daele) in collaboration with architects Alice Nouvet, Alice Paris, Camille Pons and Plant & Houtgoed (Jeroen Deseyn, Nicolas Vandenplas).

Accattone is invited at the conference Publishing in Architecture, organised by ARCH+.
‘Introduced by Mark Wigley (Columbia University) and moderated by Francisco Moura Veiga (A FORSCHUNG / CARTHA Magazine/ETH Zurich) and Anh-Linh Ngo (ARCH+, Berlin), the symposium brings together an international panel to discuss publishing as an alternative spatial practice. Sandra Bartoli (Architektur im Gebrauch, Berlin), Olaf Grawert (Brandlhuber+/ ETH Zürich), Cédric Libert (CIVA Foundation, Brussels), Carlo Menon & Sophie Dars (Accattone, Brussels), Erica Overmeer (Impresión Mexicana, Index Architecture/Index Art Book Fair, Mexico and Berlin) and Mirko Zardini (Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal) will present one publication—not necessary of their own making—and discuss why it's relevant for them personally and for the discipline. In doing so, they will also discuss their own practice of publishing.’
This event is held in the frame of Miss Read/ Berlin Art Book Festival, 3-5 May 2019.Thanks to WBI / WBA for contributing to the travel expenses.

23 JUNE — 24 SEPT 2017
Accattone was invited to curate the first exhibition of the new Contemporary Architecture Department at the CIVA Foundation, Brussels.
Corporate Arcadia looks at what is usually disregarded by architecture culture: the corporate architecture of banking headquarters, office buildings and hotels that has mostly shaped the city of Brussels in the 1990s and early 2000s.It does so with a twist:1/ Armin Linke’s photographic work from inside the Corporate Arcadia reveals the hidden activities of fifteen institutions and at the same time ‘restores beauty to these invisible sites’, overlapping architecture, interior design and social functions.2/ Magazine excerpts and videos offer thematic insights and counterpoints in the form of seven ‘double figures’, letting emerge multiple dimensions and critical knots.3/ Models and documents retrieved on site or from the architects’ archives are called to perform as embodied figures on a stepped theatre of objects: if their position is static, the concepts they carry are mobile, open to interpretation and recombination.(press kit / photos Silvia Cappellari)
