About the artist
Tania Bruguera is one of the leading political and performance artists of her generation. Focused on the application of art to everyday political life, she works to transform the condition of "viewer" to one of active citizenry, shifting social affect toward political action. Bruguera's long-term projects, such as Immigrant Movement International (conceived 2005, initiated 2010), are intensive interventions in the institutional structures of collective memory, education, and politics.
The recipient of numerous awards including the Prince Claus Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Bruguera is part of the original Occupy Wall Street movement and has been an advisor in cultural rights and artistic freedom to the United Nations Human Rights Council. She is currently at work on a book on the collaborative art process with Claire Bishop.The Institute of Fine Arts
