Karolina Breguła (b. 1979 in Poland) lives and works in Warsaw, Poland.
Breguła’s work analyses and encourages reflections on the role of art institutions in society. Bregula’s films initiate such processes by relating institutional practices to the self-instituting habits of ordinary individuals and their communities.
Breguła’s works have been presented at the 55th Venice Biennale, Italy (where she represented Romania), the Jewish Museum in New York, USA and the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland. Bregula was recently awarded the Deutsche Bank Foundation and Zachęta National Gallery of Art VIEWS prize (the most significant prize for Polish contemporary art).
