Tania Brugera is a Cuban-born artist. She is the founder and director of Cátedra Arte de Conducta, the first performance and time-based art studies program in Cuba. Bruguera is one of the leading political and performance artists of her generation. Her work researches ways in which art can be applied to everyday political life, creating a public forum to debate ideas in a state of contradiction, focusing on the transformation of the "viewer" into one of "citizenry."
