DANIELA BRUGGER

Daniela Brugger focuses on structures of society, investigating its forms and contents. She provokes moments of change by repeating and transforming supposedly familiar patterns. Fascinated by simultaneous states of being, she is captivated by alterability as a continuous condition. Her practice involves different media such as installation, video, writing, drawing, performance and collaborative projects. She is an artist and mediator and works in different fields.
