Accattone explores minor practices in art and architecture through the specific means of the printed magazine. As an exhibition on paper, each issue is a montage of contributions whose shared positions towards reality, history and representation resonate with one another.
In the current landscape of non-commercial publications, Accattone's originality lies in the strong visual orientation and in the close association of methods, editorial devices and featured contents. Through these experiments, crossing the methods of artists-as-iconographers with emerging architectural practices, Accattone addresses critically a fundamental aspect of thinking and practice: the working document and the changing status of the image.
A-periodical, self-published in Brussels by two architects (Sophie Dars & Carlo Menon) and two graphic designers (Ismaël Bennani & Orfée Grandhomme), Accattone has gained international recognition and distribution in both professional and academic contexts, including the first Index Architecture Book Fair (Mexico City), the Venice Biennale, the ICA (London) and the CCA (Montreal).

Accattone is also an editorial platform publishing monographic and collective books.
