As a nonprofit arts organization, Fantom explores the new trajectories of, and in between, photography, sound and the visual arts. It started its activities in 2009, under the initiative of Selva Barni, with a group that included Didier Falzone, Massimo Torrigiani and Francesco Zanot, publishing a photographic quarterly and a series of photobooks. In 2012, Fantom discontinued the publication of the magazine, was joined by Ilaria Speri, and evolved into a collective that conceives and produces exhibitions, performances and publishing projects. Fantom has worked in collaboration, or under commission, with museums, institutions and galleries. Among them: Triennale Milano, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the French Institute, Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati, Manifesta Biennial, Marsèlleria, and Viasaterna Arte Contemporanea. Along the years, they have collaborated with artists and musicians Batia Suter, Brice Dellsperger, Caterina Barbieri and Ruben Spini, Charlotte Dumas, Francesco Cavaliere, Guido Guidi, Kensuke Karasawa, Lele Saveri, Lorenzo Vitturi, Mario Milizia, Matthew Herbert, Maurizio Anzeri, Nicola Ratti, Raed Yassin, Ruth van Beek, Shilpa Gupta, Soundwalk Collective, Taisuke Koyama, Takashi Homma, Theo Drebbel, Yang Fudong, and Zhou Siwei. Among others. Fantom’s project for Arte Fiera 2022, now in its third year, is carried out by Selva Barni, Benedetta Pomini, Ilaria Speri, Massimo Torrigiani and Francesco Zanot.
