Stefan Brüggemann (b. 1975, Mexico City) lives and works in London and Mexico City. He has exhibited internationally at some of the most visionary institutions and private collections throughout the world. He has had solo shows at the Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion, Barcelona; the Kunsthalle Bern and the ICA, London. He has been included in group shows at the David Roberts Art Foundation, London; the Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City; the Fundacion Serralves, Porto; La Coleccion Jumex, Mexico City; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Kunsthalle Frankfurt and the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal.
Stefan Brüggemann’s work focuses on contrast and contradictions. His practice is concerned with how and where mediation might occur, rather than placing an emphasis on the separateness of opposing positions. This is especially the case with language, which powerfully shapes and directs our existence. Language is envisaged in Brüggemann’s practice as a fluid medium whose objects, structure and ideology are in a state of constant alteration.
