Tania Bruguera

Hannah Arendt International Institute of Artivism

Tania Bruguera is an internationally acclaimed Cuban artist, whose politically motivated installations and performances engage the audience as active participants rather than spectators. She proposes practical solutions to sociopolitical problems through an approach she calls arte útil (useful art) and her research focuses on how art can effect social change and teach civic responsibility in the face of oppression. Alongside works examining the social implications of political and economic power, Tania has also developed more long-term projects, such as setting up an institute in Havana which offers residencies for international artists that combine their artistic work with political activism.
