Francele Cocco is a Brazilian historian and visual artist. Her artistic projects are developed at the intersections between social thinking and image theory, articulating photography, video, text and installation. Her works critically explore the technologized society, the surplus image, fetishism and ideology, counter-information, techno-capitalism and political utopia, and how these concepts affect and transform contemporary beings.

She has been working in the expanded field of image for 15 years, first with independent audiovisual media, then in more traditional disciplines of film and journalism. She was a cultural producer and audiovisual director, a cultural networks management and a member of the Le Monde Diplomatique team in Brazil. In 2017, while working in her own production studio, she obtained a postgraduate degree in Photography as Contemporary Art and rerouted her career to art and image historiography.

Between 2018 and 2021 she was an artist-in-residence at the Espai d'Arts Roca Umbert, oriented by Joan Fontcuberta, where she also coordinated the Post-Photography Collaborative Research Laboratory and edited the collective book 'Photocalipsis: Speculations with no future on the present of images'. Today, she is attending a specialization course at the Complutense University of Madrid in Critical Analysis of Capitalist Economics: The Marxist Method and Current Economics.

She currently lives and works in Madrid, dividing her time between art and teaching.
