Bárbara Fluxá
1974, Madrid, Spain

Multidisciplinary artist, PhD, researcher and teacher at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Complutense University of Madrid. She is a specialist in new strategies and contemporary artistic practices around the environmental systemic crisis and the current relations between humanity, technology and nature.

Her work aims to make visible the Western instrumentalization of nature space and proposes a new landscape imaginary that problematizes the Anthropocene era in which we live. Her proposals, mostly produced through a multidisciplinary artistic language, have a certain investigative aesthetic typical of the current synergies between art and science.

She is currently a member of the research Contemporary artistic practices and forms of knowledge of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UCM. And researcher of the R+D+i Project: Energetic Humanities (HUMENERGE) based at the CSIC. She has given numerous conferences, lectures and artist workshops in public and private institutions. She has an intense artistic career through her participation in numerous solo and group exhibitions, as well as in artistic production and research projects, in Spain and abroad, such as Argentina, Peru, Chile, Italy, Greece, Ireland, and France. Her work is owned by museums, institutions and cultural foundations, both private and public.

Of the latest research and creation grants received, the Leonardo Grant for Cultural Creators and Researchers 2017-18 (Plastic Arts Area) from the BBVA Foundation stands out.
