Rodrigo Ghattas Pérez

Visual Artist & Cultural Mediator Oslo, Norway

[*This site serves as an archive for my previous visual work 2007-2016, to see recent work please visit rodrigoghattas.wordpress.com]

I’m an independent visual artist, libertarian socialist, creative laborer, cultural mediator, radical community arts organizer, and a public dance enthusiast, with Peruvian-Palestinian roots. My work explores the intersections of community networks, performativity theories, community intelligence, and life practices of multidirectional care.

I’m the Director of Community Relations & Outreach of The Union and Founder of the indigenous-contemporary art center Machaqmara Center for the Arts. I have held previous positions in arts management and art production at OSLO PILOT, Ekebergparken, Oslo Biennial and UKS (Young Artists' Society). I received an MFA Art and Public Space from Kunsthøgskolen I Oslo and a BFA with a major in Sculpture from Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.

I believe in self-organized utopias.
