Julieta Aranda

When the ground becomes exposed

Julieta Aranda (b. 1975 in Mexico City, lives and works in New York and Berlin) studied film at the School of Visual Arts from 1996 to 2001 and at Columbia University, New York until 2006. Together with the artist Anton Vidokle she founded the internet platform e-flux, which was followed by further projects such as the video archive e-flux rental and Pawnshop. Together they publish the online magazine e-flux Journal. Since 2010, Aranda has been working with Vidokle on the project Time / Bank, in which time is traded as an alternative currency to money. Aranda’s artistic practice often deals with the concept of time. When the ground becomes exposed (2017) deals with a possible way of time reckoning that moves beyond human standards and, in the sense of a critique of anthropocentrism, looks at global contexts to which people are subjected, but which they also have a decisive influence on. Most recently, her works have been shown at, among others, Fridericianum, Kassel (2015); Berlin Biennale (2014); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2012); documenta, Kassel (2012); Venice Biennale (2011); Portikus, Frankfurt/Main (2011); Liverpool Biennial (2010); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2009); Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2009); Youth Salon, The House of Artists, Zagreb (2008); Lyon Biennale (2007).
