About Daniel G. Andújar

Daniel G. Andújar, an esteemed visual artist, theorist, and activist residing in Barcelona, is renowned for his dynamic interventions within public spaces and his critical engagement with digital media, along with the strategic methodologies employed by associated corporations. Born in Almoradí, Alicante, Spain, in 1966, Andújar’s body of work navigates the nuanced landscapes of both tangible urban environments and the ethereal realms of the Internet. His artistic and theoretical endeavors are anchored in the exploration of the intricate interplay between domains, illuminating the disparities and power dynamics that underpin social and relational frameworks in contemporary society. Andújar adopts a collaborative approach to his projects, delving into a multitude of political, historical, social, and cultural discourses and their manifestation within media narratives, with a focus on issues such as body politics, , censorship, xenophobia, urban development, cultural industries, technological access and exclusion, and the utilization of public spaces.

A dedicated educator, Andújar has imparted knowledge and facilitated workshops and seminars for artists and community groups across the globe. In 2011, he contributed to the Strategy for Visual Arts initiated by the Ministry of Culture. He is a longstanding member of the Hangar Foundation’s Board of Trustees and has championed the rights of visual artists through his leadership role in the Associació d’artistes visuals de Catalunya (AAVC). Andújar’s art has been showcased in prestigious exhibitions worldwide, including Manifesta 4 and the 53rd Venice Biennale. The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid presented an extensive solo exhibition of his work from January to April 2015, curated by Manuel Borja-Villel. Additionally, in 2017, he made significant contributions to documenta14 in Athens and Kassel, further cementing his status as a pivotal figure in contemporary art.

Technologies To The People

info@danielandujar.org

Daniel G. Andújar is a visual artist, theoretician, and activist who works and lives in Barcelona. Through interventions in public space and a critical use of digital media and the communication strategies of the corporations connected to it, the theoretical and artistic work developed by Daniel G. Andújar (Almoradí, Alicante, Spain, 1966) oscillates between territories that are real (the city) and virtual (the Net).

He sets out from the premise that, when displaying/dissecting the connections found between both, the inequalities that generate social and power relations are envisaged in a context like the current one. Most of his art projects are based on collaborative research that explores different political, historical, social and cultural phenomena and their media representations in a critical way: body politics, corruption, censorship, xenophobia, urban developments, the cultural industries, the inclusion and exclusion of technologies, the use of public space, etcetera. 

He has taught and directed workshops and seminars for artists and social collectives in numerous countries. In 2011, he was part of the writing team for the Strategy for Visual Arts, promoted by the Ministry of Culture. Historical member of the Board of  Trustees of the Hangar Foundation and worked from the presidency of the Associació d’artistes visuals de Catalunya (AAVC) in the fight for the rights of visual artists. His works have been shown in numerous exhibitions worldwide, including Manifesta 4 and the 53rd Venice Biennale. The Spanish National Reina Sofia in Madrid hosted a comprehensive one-man show from January to April 2015, curated by Manuel Borja-Villel. In 2017, participate in documenta14 in Athens and Kassel.
