Teresa Burga is an internationally acclaimed artist of feminist „conceptual art“, which she always negotiated as a concrete space of action in the context of Peru’s colonial heritage and the political reality surrounding it, and whose structures of violence and power, conventions and ethnic attributions she deconstructed in her work.

This also means that her work is not to be read in the context of the formal-aesthetic exercises of „Western“ conceptual art, but rather as an analysis of the administrative, bureaucratic, political powers inherent in colonialism, which she radically brushes against the grain. Her work gains its topicality by anticipating contemporary discourses on the decolonization of art as well as art institutions, conveying them as historical and translating them into the present.
