Diego Bruno (Born in 1978 in Argentina) lives and works in Helsinki. Uses moving-image, photography, text, drawing — his practice takes particular attention to recent historical sequences of latin America history in which forms of subversive politics can be localised, situated and actualised. Evolving from the existing relations and ruptures between form and information, the works focus on
systems of translation and transference; questioning how are aesthetic ideas assimilated and reactivated politically, or socially, at a local level? And more broadly speaking, how are ideas themselves embedded within the fabric of the exhibition space?
Bruno’s work has been shown at Wiels Center for Contemporary Art, Brussels; Museum of Latin American Art, Buenos Aires; Centre d´Art Santa Monica, Barcelona; Manifesta 08 Murcia; Center for Contemporary Art Celje; Extra City, Antwerp; The Solo Project, Basel; Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona, Malmö Kunsthalle, 39th EVA International, and 3rd Bienal Sur among others.
Bruno’s films have also been shown at international film festivals such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Milano Film Festival, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin and Biennial of Moving Image, Buenos Aires.
