Juan Pablo Macìas Biography

Born in Puebla (MX) in 1974 lives and works in Mexico and Italy. His work explores the relation between systems of representation and affectivity, and analogically, between power knowledge and insurrectional knowledge. With his actions, interventions and work on archives, he intends to cause tensions between institution, art practice and social field, abandoning flat semantics by producing programs that operate directly on the biological, social and economic bodies.
His work was featured in the Emergency Biennale traveling exhibition at the 10th Istanbul Biennial and in Resisting The Present: Mexico 2000-2012 held at Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Museo Amparo in the City of Puebla, Mexico. Since 2012 he is presenting an ongoing project called Tiempo Muerto passing through Kunstraum München, MUCA-Roma in Mexico City, Tranzitdisplay in Prague and in the collective show Altars of Madness (2013) held at Casino Luxembourg and Confort Moderne in Poitiers.
