Teresa Burga

The Peruvian artist Teresa Burga (1935-2021) is considered one of the pioneers of Pop Art and Conceptual Art in Latin America. Since the 1960s, she has proven to be a detailed protocolist of contemporary social conditions. Her extensive oeuvre includes paintings and environments that can be classified as Pop Art, as well as conceptual drawings and objects, and cybernetic installations. The unifying factor in this medially and formally broad spectrum is the artist's consistent effort to make complex social structures just as visible as the individual's possibility for self-determined action.
