Julieta Aranda

Julieta Aranda was born in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1975. She currently lives and works between Berlin, Germany, and New York, USA.

In 2006, she received her MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in New York City. She had previously completed her undergraduate studies at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan (2001).

Aranda‘s multimedia project-based work has frequently focused on the dissemination of information and the agency of the individual in contemporary society. Her current works allude to the present historical moment, when it starts to be possible to dismantle the cultural imperative, and transform the media so that they can function as tools for collective use, rather than as instruments for cultural domination. 

Aranda’s work has been featured in important international shows, such as There is no Barren Soil (Arrhythmia) — EBM(T).org (2016) If a body meet a body,  mor charpentier, Frieze New York (2015) USAthe 8th Berlin Biennial, Germany (2014); the 1st Biennial of Cartagena de Indias (2014); the Cuenca Biennial, Equator (2014, 2012); dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, Germany (2012); the 12th Istanbul Biennial, Turkey (2011); the Venice Biennial, Latin America’s Pavillion, Venice, Italy (2011); the 6th Liverpool Biennial, UK (2010); and the Polygraphic triennial, San Juan, Puerto Rico (2009).

Her work has been shown internationally in venues such as: the Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce, Italy, (2013); Francesco Pantaleone Arte Contemporanea, Palermo, Italy (2013); ABC Berlin, Berlin, Germany (2013); Performa 2012, New York, USA (2012); the New Museum, New York, USA (2009); the Solomon R.
