Diego Marcon

Diego Marcon (b. 1985, Busto Arsizio, Italy) is an artist working across film, video and installation whose practice investigates cinematic archetypes. His process combines theoretical and structural approaches to filmmaking with more sentimental motifs from popular movie genres. Throughout Marcon’s work, empathy, morality and vulnerability are deployed with intentional ambiguity. He has exhibited internationally with solo presentations including Dramoletti, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Teatro Gerolamo, Milan (2023); Monelle, Sadie Coles HQ, London (2023); Ludwig, Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore/LASALLE (2019). His films have screened at festivals including Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Vienna International Film Festival, and BFI London Film Festival.

The second of two screening programmes animating the work of Basma al-Sharif, BFMAF24 Filmmaker in Focus.

Born stateless and of Palestinian heritage, her work explores cyclical political histories and conflicts. In films and installations that move backward and forward in history, between place and non-place, she confronts the legacy of colonialism through satirical, immersive, and lyrical works.
