Tania Bruguera is a Cuban installation and performance artist. She lives and works between New York and Havana, and has participated in numerous international exhibitions. Her work is also in the permanent collections of many institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana. Bruguera’s work pivots around issues of power and control, and several of her works interrogate and represent events in Cuban history.
As part of the work, Bruguera has instigated an Immigrant Respect Awareness Campaign and launched an international day of actions on 18 December 2011 (which the UN has designated International Migrants Day), in which other artists also made work about immigration. Bruguera is the Tate Modern Hyundai Commission Turbine Hall artist with a current installation focusing on migration, neighbourliness and civic activism.
