Political Timing Specific is a term coined by Tania Bruguera to define a type of art created to exist at a specific political moment, giving the artwork potential political and social impact. As it is not enough anymore to make art as a posteriori reaction or comment, it is time to make art for the not-yet and the yet-to-come.
Tania Bruguera is an installation and performance artist whose works often expose the social effects of the power of political force.
She participated in the Documenta 11 exhibition and also established the Arte de Conducta (Behavior Art) program at Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Her work has been shown in the 2015 Venice Biennale, at Tate Modern, London, Guggenheim and MoMA, New York, among others.
Bruguera has recently opened the Hannah Arendt International Institute for Artivism, in Havana – a school, exhibition space and think thank for activist artists and Cubans.
