The piece featured in this exhibition is a recent acquisition by MoMA. It looks back to a pivotal point in Tania Bruguera‘s career, as she moved from working primarily with her own body to working with the collective social body. Bruguera refers to her work from this period as Arte de Conducta, or “behavior art”—a practice aimed at “not representing the political but provoking the political.” Through constructed situations, she explores the formation of collective memory and the way that the political is registered within the body itself.
Please note that the installation is closed on Monday. During the opening days it is suggested to arrive around 10:30 am due to the line and the long waiting time.
After 4 pm the staff usually cut the line.
