Gala Berger

Gala Berger (b. Villa Gesell, Argentina, 1983) is a visual artist and independent curator living and thinking between San José, Costa Rica and Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is co-founder of La Ene (New Energy Museum of Contemporary Art), an experimental museum based in Buenos Aires, and the Paraguay Printed Art Fair, a fair born with the aim of creating alternative platforms of exchange and circulation of independent publications without the traditional restrictions and regulations faced by the mainstream press. Between 2012 and 2014, she also co-founded and directed two exhibition spaces in Buenos Aires: Inmigrante [Immigrant] and Urgente [Urgent]. Both of them acted as meeting points for experimental projects that didn’t have any local attention or support. In 2009 she was the curator for Munguau Project, an exchange platform between South Korea and Argentina as part of the Korean Cultural Center for Latin America. In 2017, she taught the course “Aesthetics of self-criticism” at the National University of Art, as part of the trans-departmental area of Art Criticism program, in Buenos Aires. She has been in residence at SAAP, Anyang Public Art Project, South Korea (2009); KUTSU in Tampere, Finland (2010); Collection Moraes-Barbosa, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2012). In November 2018 she was a resident in La Tallera – Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, in Mexico. She is one of the recipients of the 2018 Grants and Commissions CIFO (Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation) with the project Resistance Alliances, a board game to explore the social history of feminisms in Latin America.
