Lorena Wolffer

For over 25 years, the work produced by artist and cultural activist Lorena Wolffer (Mexico City, 1971) has been an ongoing platform for enunciation and resistance at the intersection between art, activism, and feminism. While her own work addresses issues related to the cultural fabrication of gender and advocates the rights, agency, and voices of women and non-normative individuals, she has also produced, facilitated, and curated dozens of projects with numerous artists in platforms such as museums, public spaces, and television. From the creation of radical cultural interventions with various communities to pioneering pedagogical models for the collective development of situated knowledge, these projects are produced within an inventive arena that underlines the pertinence of experimental languages and displaces the border between so-called high and low cultures. Her work—a stage for the voices, representations, and narratives of others—articulates cultural practices based on respect and equality. She has presented her work widely in Mexico and internationally.
