Luiza Margan is a visual artist who examines relations between political ideologies, personal histories, and their shifts that shape public space and social power relations. Through the strategies of researching histories, reversing perspectives and re-claiming spaces, the artist challenges normative ways of seeing and shaping memory, tangling the very power structures that define the public space, work and gender politics.
