Born in Mexico City, currently lives and works between New York and Berlin. Central to Aranda's multidimensional practice are her involvement with circulation mechanisms and the idea of a "poetics of circulation", of a politicized subjectivity / politicized subject, the perception and use of time, and the power over the imaginary. Julieta Aranda's work has been exhibited internationally in venues such as Solomon Guggenheim Museum (2009), Kunstverein Arnsberg (2010), New Museum (2010), MOCA Miami (2009), Witte de With, (2010), Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (2007), 2nd Moscow Biennial (2007) MUSAC, Spain (2006), and VII Havanna Biennial; amongst others. As a co-director of e-flux together with Anton Vidokle, Julieta Aranda put together Pawnshop (currently presented in Beijing, at Vitamin shop); and e-flux video rental, which started in the e-flux storefront in new York, and has traveled to more than 15 venues worldwide.
