Juan Obando
Title: 
Assistant Professor
Office: 
North 172
Bio: 

Juan Obando’s work focuses on the critical intervention of social circuits through the orchestration of temporary situations. These experiments are mostly directed towards the production of video-performances, participatory networks and experimental publications —using social phenomena as raw material and humor as a critical tool in exposing systematic ironies and contradictions.
