Graziela Kunsch, Sao Paulo, Brazil, is an artist currently developing the Projeto Mutirao, a never-ending video project formed by "excerpts" - one take videos - that show the collective production of a new city.
The project is presented to different audiences/contexts and each time Graziela chooses different excerpts to show and start a conversation. She also assumes curatorial and editorial roles as forms of her artistic practice. Between 2001-2003 she opened her house as a ‘public space’ (Casa da Grazi) and there she organized many residencies and exhibitions, involving collaborations from all around Brazil. Since then she has opened her personal library for public use, and brings parts of the library to exhibitions.
Co-organizer of the project Art and the Public Sphere [http://arte-esferapublica.org]. Editor of the magazine Urbania – its last issue focused on the right to the city, understood not merely as a right of access to what already exists, but as a right to re-imagine and change it.
