Tania Bruguera in "Legacy" - Season 7 - "Art in the Twenty-First Century" | Art21

Art21 proudly presents an artist segment, featuring Tania Bruguera, from the "Legacy" episode in the seventh season of the "Art in the Twenty-First Century" series.

"Legacy" premiered in November 2014 on PBS.

Tania Bruguera explores the relationship between art, activism, and social change, staging participatory events and interactions that build on her own observations, experiences, and understanding of the politics of repression and control. Her work advances the concept of arte útil, according to which art can be used as a tool for social and political empowerment.
