Jota Castro, *1965 in Lima, Peru / lives and works in Brussels, Belgium
\
Jota Castro is a Brussels-based Franco-Peruvian artist, curator and one of the most interesting and active artist today to propagate a political activism within his practice. Conjuring up trivial humor, politically incorrect sarcasm and a wide range of references, Castro‘s sculptures, installations and performances point up certain mechanisms at work in society, whose imbalances and weaknesses are skillfully highlighted by the artist.
