About the Artist
Tania Bruguera is an artist whose work over the past 10 years has been concerned with the impact of political discourse, ideology and power on people's lives. Viewed from different perspectives, she has unmasked various mechanisms of power where we (the people) are not victims but collaborators. Since 2002 (with the creation of "C??tedra Arte de Conducta" an alternative art school project in Havana) she started a series of projects where she moved on to appropriate not the language of power but the resources, the place of power. Bruguera is not interested anymore on representing a political situation but to create a political situation; to instead of reproducing some of the strategies used by political power, put them into motion. She has been working towards building utopias not as a state but as acting and implemented facts through social and behavioral performances.
