Marina Mónaco (1996) is a photographer and film director from Buenos Aires, based in Berlin and working worldwide.

Since moving to Germany to join the Film Akademie Baden-Württemberg in 2020, she has explored the spectrum of youth culture across suburban Europe. 
Raw, vulnerable, unapologetic, her ongoing series Kids serves as the living manifesto of a generation she is part of.

In 2023, she presented her photographs to the public in her first Berlin solo exhibition titled I Saw You in a Song and released a book under the same name. 

With Neue Welle, her latest body of work, she developed a signature style at the point where documentary photography meets dark, cold sound. Tracing her connection with the German new wave and muse Nils Keppel, nostalgic atmospheres permeate the ineffable pain of coming of age.

Mónaco’s upcoming projects include a second publication release and an exhibition creating coordinates between Berlin and New York City independent scenes.
