Jota Castro
AUSTERITY ÜBER ALLES!
28 April – 26 May 2012

 

Galerie Barbara Thumm is proud to display the second solo exhibition by the French-Peruvian artist Jota Castro (born in 1965, Lima, Peru) who is internationally acclaimed, controversially discussed and one of the most active artists today to propagate a political activism within his practice.
In the late 1990’s Jota Castro brought his career as a diplomat at the United Nations and the European Union to an end and decided to devote himself exclusively to the field of arts, to which he contributes both as a curator as well as a practising visual artist. In 2009 he curated the exhibition “Fear Society” at the pabellón de la urgencia at the Venice Biennial, and most recently the Dublin Contemporary in 2011.
