Daniela Ortiz IN RESiDENCE at the School Josep Comas i Solà


Born in Cuzco (Peru) in 1985, in recent years Daniela Ortiz has concentrated her research particularly on migration and management in response to this phenomenon by host societies and states. 

Throughout her artistic career, Daniela Ortiz has focused basically on themes relating to immigration, the idea of nationality, work, the differences between social classes and gender issues. In her work, she aims to generate spaces of tension in which to explore these concepts, revealing the social function as a structure based on inclusion and exclusion.

She has taken part in collective exhibitions in Spain, the USA, Peru, Sweden, Romania and the Czech Republic, and has presented solo shows at Space 13 at the Miró Foundation (Barcelona), the Abelló Museum (Mollet del Vallès), Sala Muncunill (Terrassa) and the Àngels Barcelona (Barcelona) and 80M2 (Lima) galleries.

Daniela Ortiz received the Guasch Coranty grant from the University of Barcelona (2011) for her Habitaciones de servicio [Service Room] project, the CIFO grant (2012) for Distinción  [Distinction] and the BCN Producció grant to develop her project NN15.518 in cooperation with Xose Quiroga. 

Biography written in 2014

School Josep Comas i Solà


The school, which took part in the fifth edition of In Residence (2013-2014), is participating in the initiative once more this year with a group of third- and fourth-year secondary pupils from the “Open Classroom” group.


The Institut Comas i Solà (Trinitat Vella, Sant Andreu) was created in 1990 in response to pressure from residents keen to ensure that local youngsters did not have to travel to other neighbourhoods in order to pursue their secondary education. The centre is named after Josep Comas i Solà, an astronomer who popularised science and promoted modern astronomy in Catalonia and was also the director of the Fabra Observatory.
