Francesco Jodice was born in Naples in 1967. He lives and works in Milan.
He graduated as an architect and began his artistic activity in 1995. From his very first works, undertaken in a specifically urban area, he has concentrated on an analysis of the new relationships between social behaviour and the urban landscape in various geographical areas. For his works he makes use of different media and combines photography and video with writing and the creation of maps. In 2000 he was one of the founders of Multiplicity, an international network of architects and artists which develops interdisciplinary researches into the processes governing the transformation of the condition of cities.
Since 2004 he has been professor of the theory and practice of the technical image at the University of Bolzano and, since 2005, he has taught visual urban anthropology at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan.
