Period & Style
Artist Tania Bruguera describes The Francis Effect, a work informed by the legacies of Conceptualism and performance art that frames art as a manifestation of political activism and social practice. The Francis Effect involves petitioning the Pope to grant citizenship of Vatican City to immigrants and refugees. Bruguera also describes public reactions to the project, outlines its educational and political components, and ponders the ways in which art might influence quotidian reality.
