Tania Bruguera

Year of birth, place
1968, Havanna, Cuba

The work of the artist, who lives both in Havana and Chicago, is a reflection of the relationship between politics and power and takes up the themes of migration and post-colonialism, examining religious questions, as well as the context of her own cultural life. With her spatial installations, performance-and video works, Bruguera was represented, among others, at the documenta 11 (2002) in Kassel, at the biennials in Istanbul (2003), Shanghai (2004), Tirana (2005), Venice (2001, 2005) and Göteborg (2007). Tania Bruguera is presently teaching at the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago.
