Bárbara Wagner‘s photographic practice is centered on the research and representation of the ‘popular body’, its historical manifestations and strategies of visibility and subversion within contemporary cultural industry. Being published in book formats since 2007, her works have been exhibited in solo and group shows in London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Gdansk, Dakar and are part of the MASP and MAM collections in Sao Paulo. A monograph with an extensive selection of her photographs is published in That which is beautiful must be seen (Het Domein 2009). In 2011 she completed a MFA at the Dutch Art Institute.
