Santiago Sierra

Informationen zum Künstler

Sierra studied art in Madrid and at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg. His projects are characterized by their critical attitude towards society. Sierra addresses poverty and impoverishment, but also the established art scene with his actions. His practice integrates the viewer and is often extremely provocative. By means of his radical performances Sierra repeatedly shows the inhuman side of the economic system. Sierra not only repeats capitalist practices, but also creates situations that expose the mechanisms of capitalism in a frightening way. The artist documents all events via video recording or photograph.
