Carolina Caycedo’s practice moves beyond the bounds of the studio, gallery and institution, extending into the realm of the social, where she explores systems of movement and exchange, as well as processes of assimilation and resistance. She engages with issues and contexts that affect a broad public on an everyday level; in her work, art functions as a tool for offering alternative models to inhabit a world in which individuals and communities are increasingly subject to commodification, exploitation and discrimination. She has developed publicly engaged projects in Bogotá, Madrid, Lisbon, San Juan, New York, San Francisco and London. Her work has been shown by Creative Time, the Queens Museum, Vienna Secession and DAAD Gallery in Berlin. She has participated in numerous international biennials, including Berlin (2014), Havana (2009), Venice (2003) and Istanbul (2001). In 2012, Caycedo was a DAAD Artist-in-Berlin resident.
