Franco Mattes at MassArt

  • Pozen Center, MassArt 621 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)

Franco Mattes is half of an artist duo with Eva Mattes. They were both born in Italy in 1976 and are now based in New York City. Since meeting in Berlin in 1994, they have never separated. Operating under the pseudonym, they are counted among the pioneers of the Net Art movement and are renowned for their subversion of public media. They produce art involving the ethical and political issues arising from the inception of the Internet. The work investigates the fabrication of situations, where fact and fiction merge into one. They are based in Brooklyn, New York, but also travel frequently throughout Europe and the United States.
