Born in Rome in 1962, and currently lives and works in Rome and Cologne (Germany). Carlo Caloro’s research presents itself as an exploration of various artistic idioms and the stigmas attached to certain elements of the contemporary translated by the artist into images: composite installations that arise from personal reflections and syntheses of research conducted using methods often borrowed from humanistic and scientific traditions. Suspended between logical and abstract approaches, each work is a material and poetic experiment. His idiom often engages new technologies as well as traditional craftmanship or performative action. His dual training – at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne (KHM) and the “Silvio D’Amico” National Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome – where he collaborated, on the course of Direction, as a researcher into the field of new technologies applied to stage performance, defines him not only as an artist, but also as a “director” of events and exhibitions orchestrated at the independent space artQ13, which he co-founded. He has also taught and developed research projects with the following institutions such as the Accademia di Belle Arti of Rome, Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona, Departement de Filologia Espanyola, Spain, Ajuntament de Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, Patronat Granja Soldevila, Spain, Universidad de Exstremadura, Departemento de Filología Hispánica, Càceres, Spain, Universidad de Exstremadura, Acción Cultural y Servicios a la Comunidad Universitaria, Càceres, Spain, Justus-Liebig-Universität, Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft, Department of Applied Theatre, Giessen, Germany, Theater im Pfalzbau, Repertory Theatre of Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany, Georg-August-Universität, Dramaturgische Abteilung des Deutschen Seminars, Göttingen, Germany and with the University of Westminster, School of Social Sciences, Humanities & Languages, London, Great Britain.
