Paula Bruna (Barcelona, 1978)
Her background starts from environmental science and ecology, and she has worked in scientific research, natural management and environmental policies. Later she graduated in fine arts. Both professions have converged in her artistic projects, in which she studies the interaction between society and its ecological environment. She is currently working on a narrative about the Anthropocene from a non-human point of view, using a combination of science, fiction, and art.
Paula carries out her artistic research on art and political ecology within the framework of the PhD program of Advanced Studies in Artistic Research at the University of Barcelona. The results of this research are shared in congresses, publications (BRAC, Ecología Política), workshops on art and ecology (Hangar, La Escocesa, Calafou, Center del Carme de Cultura Contemporània, UAB…) and events and exhibitions (Notes on Landscape (…), Kunstraum Lakeside, Austria; Després de la fi del món, CCCB; Aplec Saó; CAN Farrera). She was awarded the Guasch-Coranty Artistic Creation Grant 2018-19 and La Escocesa Research and Experimentation Grant 2019. She is an artist-in-residence at La Escocesa and was previously a short (2017) and long term (2018-2020) artist-in-residence at Hangar.
