Portrait of Marcelo Brodsky

Marcelo Brodsky (1954) lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. An artist and political activist, Brodsky’s work is situated on the border between installation, performance, photography, monument and memorial. His emblematic work Buena Memoria (1996), has been shown more than 150 times in public spaces as well as museums and public spaces around the world. It narrates the story of his generation affected by the dictatorships in Argentina, and the holes left in it with the disappearances of friends and classmates.

 Brodsky´s solo shows and books include Nexo, Memory under Construction, and Visual Correspondences, his visual conversations with other artists and photographers, such as Martin Parr, Manel Esclusa or Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Recent projects include the publication of [email protected]:53 with Ilan Stavans, a photonovella that combines reportage and fiction, and Tree Time, a book about the relationship between memory and Nature. His current exhibitions are “1968 the Fire of Ideas” and “Migrants”, an essay on the refugee crisis in Europe connected with his own migrations. His work is part of major collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston , the Tate Collection London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes Argentina, Museo de Arte Moderno Buenos Aires, Center for Creative Photography Tucson Arizona, Sprengel Museum Hannover, Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos Santiago de Chile, MALI Lima, etc.
