Political and social justice are at the core of Tania Bruguera’s performances, events, community projects, and exhibitions. She confronts repressive governments and societal systems—and gives voice to the voiceless—through her work, which touches directly on the Cuban Revolution and immigrant rights. Although Bruguera presents her work as art, she does not necessarily want it to appear that way. As she explains, “For me the most important moment for an art piece is when people are not sure if it’s art or not.” She describes this juncture as the “productive moment.” Bruguera has been awarded and arrested for her presentations. In 2014, she was apprehended by the Cuban government for attempting to stage a performance in Havana’s Revolution Square. She had planned to set up a microphone and invite people to express their visions for Cuba.
