Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca

Working together for over a decade, Bárbara Wagner (Brazil, 1980) & Benjamin de Burca (Munich, 1975) a produce videos and video installations in dialogue with other artists and collectives. The duo has developed a research method according to documentary observation and investigation, constructing the direction, screenwriting, costumes, and soundtracks in collaboration with the protagonists of each project. This horizontal way of working is crucial for transmitting the frequently urgent, socially and historically determined content of their audiovisual investigation. Even in their incursions into other modes of making, such as photography, painting or woodcutting, social types and political friction are still formative elements of the discourse presented.
