Tania Bruguera will create the next annual Hyundai Commission.
Best known for her politically-engaged projects and activism, Bruguera makes work that addresses institutional power, borders and migration. She has established a unique concept for her political approach to art - Arte Util (useful art) - one that will continue to be developed in her new work for the Turbine Hall.
Over the past 20 years, Bruguera has become renowned for creating art that addresses major political concerns, often taking the form of a political or social action in itself. Her work questions the nature of power structures, behaviours and values. She has consistently argued for art's role as a useful agent of real change in the world, while using the museum as an active forum for public debate.
