Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca

  • Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca investigate how inherited aesthetic judgements differ across social classes in developing economies. Their collaborative practice operates between documentary and art, making use of familiar narrative forms in order to ask fundamental questions related to the actual social and political value of art, who it is made for and why. Creating series of photographs, videos, collage and installations they collect accepted forms of visual cultural production and bring to an equal level of presentation diverse and contradictory elements of reality in order to destabilize embedded hierarchies, evincing questions of taste, tradition, race, class, belonging and status not immediately visible.
