Alejandro Leon Cannock

Philosopher and Photographer

Alejandro Léon-Cannock is a writer, teacher, curator and visual artist. He holds a PhD in artistic research from École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (ENSP) at Arles and Aix-Marseille Université (France). His work, halfway between iconological analysis and ideological criticism, addresses production processes, exhibition devices and modes of subjection that operate in the field of contemporary art within the framework of capitalism. In 2023 he won an open competition to represent Peru as curator of the project Cosmic Traces, by artist Roberto Huarcaya, in the 60th International Art Exhibition – Biennale di Venezia 2024.
