Overview

I can't explain and I won't even try. 

Spanning – and sometimes combining – sculpture, video, painting, and drawing, Stefan Brüggemann’s work deploys text in conceptual installations rich with acerbic social critique and a post pop aesthetic.

Biography

Sometimes I think and sometimes I don't.

Over the last 20 years, a dynamic generation of artists has developed in Mexico and Mexico City that have had an international impact. Departing from the idea of social sculpture, developed by Joseph Beuys as an artistic attempt to transform society, those non-traditional artists work within a new vocabulary using sculptural materials as well as video, photography, and performance to address historical and socio-political issues.

The Mexican artist Stefan Brüggemann works within this generation of artists, promoting a demystified and democratic idea of artmaking. Born in 1975 and working in a wide variety of disciplines between London and Mexico City, Brüggemann refers to 20-century art historical movements such as Conceptualism and Minimalism as well as aspects of popular culture, while addressing history, urban life, and current political issues. The artist’s installations combine social critique with a post pop aesthetic, creating refined artworks mantaining a punk attitude.

Recent solo exhibitions include Extra!’ ‘Headlines and Last Lines in the Movies (Guernica), at Centre Pompidou Forum in France, Centro de las Artes Monterrey in Mexico, and Stefan Brüggemann. Hi-Speed Contrast Paintings at La Cité in France.
