Miguel Azuaga (born in Malaga, 1988) is a Berlin-based artist working on moving image installations. His works linger around identification, memory and the psychology of trauma through the retelling of biographical events. He focusses in the dynamics of the individual within proximal communities –often related to family–, as well as new communities encountered in a post migrant context shaped by ethnic belonging, race, language, gender or religion. His works explore the condition of the self in a postcolonial discourse thoroughly influenced by the mainstream. He recurs to images as a deconstructing tool for contemporary narratives often shifted by those telling the stories.

Miguel Azuaga holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Malaga (Spain) and the M.A Degree “Art in Context” from the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) where he mainly focussed on artistic practices within social groups and in the context of scientific and media image production. His work has been shown at Goethe Institut Barcelona, the Berlin University of the Arts or Loop Festival among other group exhibitions in Berlin, Barcelona, Bilbao, Seville and Malaga. Solo exhibitions have been held in Berlin at the Musart exhibition Program awarded by SpanienKultur in Berlin and in Seville, granted by the “Iniciarte” Program for supporting Emergent Artists in Spain.
