Joan Fontcuberta (*1955 in Barcelona / Spain) lives and works in Barcelona. Fontcuberta graduated in 1977 with a degree in Communication from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He was an invited artist at the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) as part of the second edition of the Artist Meets Archive programme.
Since 1993 he has been Professor of Communication Sciences at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. In his artistic and theoretical work, Spanish artist Joan Fontcuberta deals with major themes of humanity, such as nature and technology. In his works he creates a visual universe in which truth and fiction are closely interwoven. Fontcuberta reflects on the evidential power attributed to photography and takes this promise ad absurdum with a sense of humour and sharp wit. In doing so, he refers to the use of photography in applied fields such as science, politics or religion from within his artistic work.
