Tania Bruguera: The Artist as Activist

Access AUDIO

Tania Bruguera creates politically charged works that have led to her detention in her native Cuba. The artist – whose performance pieces and installations have been shown at the Venice Biennial, Tate Modern, and MoMA – speaks with Claire Bishop, GC professor of art history, about the role of activism in her work.

Their talk is the keynote event of a conference inspired by the new edition of Shift: Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture. Presented by GC Public Programs, the James Gallery, and the Ph.D. Program in Art History.
