Carlos Motta

b. 1978, Bogotá, Colombia | lives and works in New York

Carlos Motta’s work, which ranges over various media, engages issues of sexuality, gender identity, minority culture, politics, and religion. In his quest to contest dominant historical narratives, he has collaborated with academics, activists, artists, performers, and researchers around the world. Motta’s 2005 work Brief History of U.S. Interventions in Latin America since 1946 is part of a series produced between 2005 and 2009 that presents two chronologies of events in the region: one of U.S. interventions there since 1946, another of its leftist guerrilla movements.
