Bio – CV

Ernesto Oroza’s practice channels the tradition of Radical Architecture into his own analytical employment of contemporary object typologies and productive forces. In lieu of functioning within the realm of manufacturing, he produces and distributes speculative models and research through various publication methods, exhibitions, collaborative practices, documentaries, and unorthodox forays into more conventional modes of architecture, interior and object design. Oroza’s work has been presented at the Groninger Museum, The Netherlands; The Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Spain; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City; Institut de Cultura La Virreina, Barcelona; Documenta fifteen, Kassel. He has participated twice in the Saint-Etienne International Design Biennial, Saint-Etienne, France. Oroza has been awarded fellowships by Guggenheim Foundation, HARPO Foundation, and received the Pernod Ricard Fellowship from the Villa Vassilieff, among others. He was Professor at Polytechnic Institute of Design, Havana, and is professor at École Supérieure d’Art et Design de Saint-Étienne, France. He has also lectured and developed workshops for various international institutions, most recently the BMW Guggenheim Lab in Berlin. Among his books are: Notes sur la maison moirée. Ou un urbanisme pour des villes qui se vident (Saint-Étienne, 2013), RIKIMBILI: Une étude sur la désobéissance technologique et quelques formes de réinvention (Publications de l’Université de Saint-Étienne, France, 2009); NO WASTE (London Pentagram Design, 2003); Editing Havana: Stories of Popular Housing (Aristo Bogforlag, 2011); and (with Penelope de Bozzi) Objets Réinventé. La création populaire a Cuba (Ëditions Alternatives, 2002). He is co-editor of the Objects Aside series for [NAME] Publications. He has also published writings in e-flux Journal and Monu–A Magazine for Urbanism.
