Gianfranco Baruchello

Year of birth, place
1924, Livorno, Italy

Gianfranco Baruchello was part of the European avant-garde movement of the 1960s. Driven by his natural scientific inclinations, he searches for points of contact at the interface of art and man, life and matter. In the case of this artist, the fusion occurs across a broad range of media through to the foundation of a commune in the country modelled after Joseph Beuys’ idea of »social sculpture«. Over the decades, Baruchello has brought forth an extensive oeuvre ranging from pictures, sculptures, collages as well as films.
