Oscar Muñoz in conversation with Natalia Brizuela, Associate Professor, Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Film and Media, University of California, Berkeley, and Elena Shtromberg, Associate Professor in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Utah.
Oscar Muñoz is a visual artist born in 1951 in Popayán, Colombia. He is known as one of the most significant contemporary visual artists in his country, and his work has also gained international recognition. Most of his art is concerned with the idea of representation, and his choice of art medium moves freely between photography (photorealism), printmaking, graphite drawing, installation art, audiovisual media, and sculpture. He also explores how images relate to memory, loss, and the precarious nature of human life.
