Agustina Triquell, PhD

Agustina holds a PhD in social sciences from IDES-General Sarmiento National University and a bachelor’s degree in social communication from Córdoba’s National University. Her doctoral research focused on the way photographic images build up subjectivities in different social contexts. Agustina has worked with various NGOs related to human rights and cultural diversity in Córdoba and Buenos Aires and coordinated art workshops with inmates at San Martin Penitentiary Unit. Since 2012 she has been a member of the Citizenship and Human Rights Program at IDES and has coordinated the NidoErrante Photography and Art Residency. Currently, she is a postdoctoral fellow at the Instituto de Desarrollo Económico y Social.

Agustina’s research and teaching deal mainly with photographic images and their circulation in the public sphere, as well as photographic memories of the recent past. She is interested in unconventional academic formats such as nonfiction audiovisual works and photobooks. She works in collective projects regarding art, public archives, and social intervention in cities in Argentina and Latin America. Her personal and collective work has been exhibited in museums and art centers in Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, and Asunción.
