Escuela de Arte Útil – Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco

Escuela de Arte Útil t is a center based on Tania Bruguera’s conception of this type of socially committed art. The projects that comply with the standards defined by the Asociación de Arte Útil demonstrate a practical, urgent and sustainable work that is designed to operate strategically as a social tool. Whether through self-organized groups, individual initiatives or the boom of user-generated content, people are developing new methods and social formations to address the problems that once were the domain of the state. These initiatives are not isolated incidents, but also part of a history of art that has been neglected, but that shapes our contemporary world.
