MEA CULPA

Santiago Sierra

PAC Pavilion of Contemporary Art of Milan present MEA CULPA, the first big antology dedicated to conceptual artist Santiago Sierra. He was born in 1966 in Madrid (Spain). He lives and works in Madrid (Spain). PAC hosts the contemporary Spanish artist’s first retrospective in Italy. His work focuses on the structural violence commanded by the political and economic system, a type of violence we try our best to ignore and that Sierra insists on showing us under a magnifying glass. He fiercely attacks the unjust distribution of wealth and inhuman work conditions in our society, but most of all, he criticizes the positive image of work that dominates our culture.
