About


EN

Visual artist María Linares

was born in Bogotá, Colombia, she lives and works in Berlin.
Fields of work are public art, video and participatory art practices.
Her main interests are interpersonal relations; in her own art pieces as well as in the projects she herself organizes and curates.

Linares is less concerned with the person who attends an exhibition of their own volition, but rather with those individuals she can take by surprise in the public sphere.
Her projects are conceived and performed according to the premise of concrete collaboration with the ordinary citizen and citizens themselves - they work in terms of the shared exchange and active participation of exhibition visitors and passers-by.

Linares pursues the aim of creating situations in which the aesthetic value of everyday experienced is accentuated in order to invite reflection on the causal social and economic nexus of contemporary consumer society.

Linares is founding member of the artists collective daily services and initiated in teamwork the Citizen Art Days in Berlin.

DE

Die Bildende Künstlerin María Linares

geboren in Bogotá, Kolumbien, lebt und arbeitet in Berlin.
Arbeitsfelder sind Kunst im öffentlichen Raum, Video und partizipatorische Kunstaktionen.

María Linares interessiert sich für Zwischen­menschliches, sowohl in der eigenen Kunst­produktion wie auch in den Projekten, die sie organisiert und kuratiert. Ihr geht es nicht nur um die Menschen, die freiwillig in Ausstellungen gehen, sondern auch besonders um solche, die sie im Stadtraum überraschen kann. Die Projekte vollziehen sich in der konkreten Zusammenarbeit mit ihnen, d.h. in dem Austausch und in der aktiven Teilnahme von Ausstellungsbesuchern, Raumnutzern oder Passanten.

Linares verfolgt die Zielsetzung, Situationen zu schaffen, die den ästhetischen Wert der bloß alltäglichen Erfahrungen hervorheben und dadurch die Teilnehmer einladen, über die sozialen und ökonomischen Fragen der gegenwärtigen Konsumgesellschaft nachzudenken.

Linares ist Gründungsmitglied des Künstlerkollektives daily services; und Mitinitatorin der Citizen Art Days in Berlin.

ES

La artista visual María Linares,

nacida en Bogotá, Colombia, vive y trabaja en Berlín.
Sus principales áreas de trabajo son arte público, video y participación. Su mayor interés son las relaciones interpersonales, tanto en su obra como en los proyectos curatoriales.

La atención de María Linares se centra no tanto en las personas que visitan una exposición voluntariamente como en aquellos a quienes puede sorprender en el espacio público. Sus proyectos se conciben y realizan con base en una colaboración concreta con los ciudadanos y de los ciudadanos entre sí, es decir en el intercambio y la participación activa de los visitantes de exposiciones, usuarios del espacio de acción y transeúntes.

Linares pretende crear situaciones que resalten el valor estético de las experiencias meramente cotidianas para invitar a los participantes a reflexionar sobre cuestiones sociales y económicas de la actual sociedad de consumo.

Linares es miembro fundador del colectivo de artistas daily services y co-iniciadora de los Citizen Art Days en Berlin.
