Stefan Bruggeman

stefanbruggemannStefan Bruggemann (Mexico City, 1975) develops a conceptual approach to art making that he explores with a critical and often provocative and ironical attitude, which questions its inner activity and contemporary societies. He works with a wide range of media, creating large installations, neon works, paintings and photographs.

Bruggemann work is a unique combination between theoretical concepts (mainly grounded on post-structuralism and deconstructionism) and pop imagery, often inspired nihilism ( anti-conformism, provocativeness and cynicism) which are often expressed through tautological premises, not only within themselves but also in relation to the context in which they are conceived and inserted.

Brüggemann’s main strategy is to insert a certain pop sensibility into conceptual practices.
