This website compiles samples of Marianna Olinger’s art, research and organizing work.
Identity and politics have been recurrent themes of my work, both autonomously and in collaboration with other people. Investigations on language and memory have resulted in works that reflect on the passage of time and energy. Experimentation and speculation, in the spirit and tradition of what Brazilian curator Mario Pedrosa called ‘o exercício experimental da liberdade’ (the experimental practice of freedom), are at the core my practice.
I have a Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, an M.Sc. in Social Policy and Planning from the London School of Economics. I studied arts both at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro and the National Academy of Arts and Design in New York. I also hold a B.Sc. in Management from Universidade Estadual de Santa Catarina.
Collaborations with social movements, community organizations, collectives and other groups of people who share similar ideas of humanity, society and social justice, have also been central to my practice through the years. Before embarking on an independent research-practice process centered on artistic expression, I worked as researcher and organizer with NGO’s and International Organizations (for further references related to that and selected publications see Earthly Issues.
