Daniel G. Andújar

Spain

Visual artist, theoretician and activist who works and lives in Barcelona. Through interventions in public space and a critical use of digital media and the communication strategies of the corporations connected to it, the theoretical and artistic work developed by Daniel G. Andújar (Almoradí, Alicante, Spain, 1966) oscillates between territories that are real (the city) and virtual (the Net).

He sets out from the premise that when displaying/dissecting the connections found between both, the inequalities that generate social and power relations are envisaged in a context like the current one. Most of his art projects are based on collaborative research that explores different political, historical, social and cultural phenomena and their media representations in a critical way: body politics, corruption, censorship, xenophobia, urban developments, the cultural industries, the inclusion and exclusion of technologies, the use of public space, etcetera.

He has taught and directed workshops and seminars for artists and social collectives in numerous countries. In 2011 he was part of the writing team of the Strategy for Visual Arts promoted by the Ministry of Culture.
