With this extensive survey exhibition, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst introduces audiences to the many-faceted oeuvre of the Peruvian artist Teresa Burga, which encompasses paintings and environments in the vein of Pop art as well as conceptual drawings and cybernetic installations.

This broad range of media, formal means, and aesthetic idioms goes hand in hand with a resolute thematic focus: Burga inquires into the latitude for individual action that remains given entrenched conventions and power structures. Her works are highly detailed protocols of the social realities of their time; their aim is to provide the beholders with information. With often playful precision, the artist highlights connections between causes and effects to draw attention to the individual’s ability to influence social conditions.
