Manuel Piña-Baldoquín is an Associate Professor in UBC’s Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory. His research interests can be summarized in the question “What is an image today?” Current technologies are bringing radical changes in the production, dissemination and perception of images. Vernacular and learned approaches are generating new visual languages, new possibilities for visual inquiries and reflections on our existence and the world.

Manuel Piña Baldoquín’s work is concerned with the tensions between power and individual freedom. His presentation will take the form of an artist talk. Starting from earlier work – created in Havana – to his current art projects and pedagogic practice, he will discuss the possibilities and challenges of politically-oriented artistic practices in different contexts and the potential roles of images as a means for social emancipation.
