Critical Art Ensemble

Critical Art Ensemble is a collective of five tactical media artists formed in 1985 in Tallahassee, Florida. Tactical Media is a form of interventionist media art that engages and critiques the dominant political and economic order.

They have authored seven books that have been translated in 18 languages and have been active internationally through Museums like Whitney Museum and The New Museum in NYC; The Corcoran Museum in Washington D.C.; The ICA, London; The MCA, Chicago; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; The London Museum of Natural History and Documenta.

Interested in Biotechnology, they have done a lot performances dressed up as scientists, usind basic high school lab equipment and household supplys to make their experiments understandable for a larger public.

Their work has focused on different social issues like U.S. policy on HIV, agricultural labour relations, the global food trade system and more recently the US defense policy.
