  • Description:

    Renowned political and performance artist Tania Bruguera examines how art can be applied to everyday political life, creating a public forum to debate ideas.  Her terms “arte de conducta” (conduct/behavior art) and “arte útil” (useful art) define her practice. In 2010, Bruguera launched Immigrant Movement International, a five-year project on the immigrant as a unique, new global citizen in a postnational world, with artists merging art into society’s social, political, and scientific issues. Bruguera’s work has been presented internationally at Documenta 11, at the Tate Modern, London; Künsthalle Wien, Vienna; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
