Daniela Ortiz was born in Cusco, Peru, in 1985. Her work generates spaces of tension in which concepts of nationality, race, social class, and genre are explored in order to critically understand structures of inclusion and exclusion in society. Her recent projects and research revolve around the issue of migration control, its links to colonialism, and its management by European states and societies. At the same time, she has produced projects about the Peruvian upper class and its exploitative relationship with domestic workers. Daniela gives talks and participates in discussions on Europe's migration control system and its ties to coloniality in different contexts.
