Ursula Biemann


Ursula Biemann is an artist, theorist and curator who has in recent years produced a considerable body of work on migration, mobility, technology and gender. She studied at Bellas Artes in Mexico and School of Visual Arts in New York, and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program. In a series of internationally exhibited video projects, as well as in several books, Been there and back to nowhere (2000), Stuff It – The Video Essay in the Digital Age (2003) and her new monograph Mission Reports (2008), she has focused on the gendered dimension of migrant labor from smuggling on the Spanish-Moroccan border to migrant sex workers in the global context. Her experimental video essays connect a theoretical macro level with the micro perspective on political and cultural practices on the ground.
