Agustina Woodgate

Agustina Woodgate (1981, Argentina) practice focuses on the politics of landscapes and infrastructures as a conceptual and public geography. She recombines, activates and repurposes available resources while setting alternative systems in motion. Woodgates’ approach is speculative, practical, and site and context-responsive, presenting critical possibilities to concepts on social orders, resource management and information distribution bringing clarity, scale, and accessibility.

In 2011 she co-founded a nomadic, translingual, online radio station. In 2015 she co-founded TVGOV, a media company providing ecological data visualization. And in 2018 she co-initiated PUB, an experimental publishing platform within Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam.

She is currently a tutor at the Disarming Design Master Program at Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam and is actively teaching workshops in several universities and organizations.

Her projects have been commissioned by BIENALSUR 2021, 2019 Whitney Biennial, 4th Istanbul Design Biennial; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; 9th Berlin Biennial; Peabody Essex Museum, MA; Bienal de las Américas, CO; ArtPort, Tel Aviv; PlayPublik, Poland; DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Washington; The Bass Museum of Art, FL; Storefront for Art and Architecture, MN and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin amongst others.
