    details to come

    Clara Lobregat Balaguer (b. 1980) is a 
cultural worker, a social practice artist, independent researcher and decolonial publisher.

    From 2010 to 2018, she articulated cultural 
programming with rural and underserved communities in the 
Philippines through the Office of Culture and Design, a
 residency space and social practice platform. In 2015, she co-
founded Hardworking Goodlooking, a cottage industry
 publishing hauz interested in horror vacui, thickening research
 on the post- (or de-) colonial vernacular, collectivizing
 authorship, and the value of the error. Currently, she 
coordinates the Social Practices course at Willem de Kooning 
Academy and teaches Experimental Publishing at Piet Zwart
 Institute in Rotterdam. Frequently, she operates under
 collective or individual aliases that intimate her service in a
 given project, the latest of which is To Be Determined.

    She has lectured at Walker Art Center, Harvard GSD, MIT, Strelka Moscow, MoMA PS1, Triple Canopy, Hanyang University Seoul, and University of the Philippines. Her work has been exhibited and performed at Asia Culture Center, Singapore Art Museum, Art Dubai, Hangar Barcelona, and La Capella.
