Breda Beban is an artist and a creative producer whose work is the one of genre crossover, using fiction and documentary, single screen film and installation. Focusing on what is strongly felt on the edges of bigger stories about politics, geography and love Beban’s productions discover contradictions triggered by instability of knowledge and dislocation of power.
Serbian born, Beban lives and works in London and Sheffiled. Her work is distributed internationally including exhibitions at the Venice Biennial, Museum of Modern Art in New York, National Museum Reina Sofia in Madrid, National Film Theatre and Tate Britain in London.
At El Basilisco, Breda Beban began a series of re-enactments of Argentinian artist Alberto Greco's ‘Arte Vivo’ performances conducted in the 1960s. Beban's 'Arte Vivo' project is an ongoing photographic series and a film project.
