SARA BENAGLIA
Living and working in Bergamo, Italy

I am an artist with a practice based on the critic of the ideo-logics in visual disciplines.
I am a writer of essays and interviews with a focus on the relation between art and politics.
I run the no-profit space BACO_BaseArteContemporaneaOdierna together with Mauro Zanchi since 2016.

I completed my training with an MA in Art Praxis at the DAI Roaming Academy.
