Barbara Wagner (1980) focuses her photography practice on the ‘popular body’ and its strategies of subversion and visibility between the fields of pop culture and tradition. Published in books edited by the artist since 2007, her works have been exhibited in individual and collective exhibitions nationally and internationally, and are part of the permanent collections of MASP and MAM in São Paulo. A monograph with an extensive selection of her photographs was published in “What is beautiful is to be seen” (Het Domein 2009). Since 2011, she has worked in collaboration with the artist Benjamin de Burca (Munich, 1975), with whom she participated in the 33rd Panorama of Brazilian Art (São Paulo, Brazil), the 4th Biennial of the Indian Ocean (La Réunion, France), the 36th EVA International (Limerick, Ireland), the 5th Edition of the Marcantonio Vilaça Award and the 32nd Biennial of São Paulo (São Paulo, Brazil). She holds a Master of Visual Arts from the Dutch Art Institute (2011). She lives and works in Recife, Brazil.
