Daniela Ortiz

Through her work Daniela Ortiz (Cusco, Peru -1985) aims to generate visual narratives in which the concepts of nationality, racialization, social class, and gender are explored in order to critically understand structures of colonial, patriarchal, and capitalist power. Her recent projects and research deal with the European migratory control system, its links to colonialism, and the legal structure created by European institutions in order to inflict violence towards racialized and migrant communities. She has also developed projects about the Peruvian upper class and its exploitative relationship with domestic workers. Recently her artistic practice has turned back into visual and manual work, developing art pieces in ceramic, collage, and in formats such as children’s books in order to take distance from eurocentric conceptual art aesthetics. Together with her artistic practice she is the mother of a 2-year-old, gives talks, workshops, reseraches, and participates in discussions on Europe’s migratory control system and its ties to coloniality in different contexts. Daniela lives and works in Barcelona.
