mónica enríquez-enríquez is a queer Latina, born and raised in Colombia. She has an M.F.A in the Digital Arts and New Media from University of California Santa Cruz. She graduated from San Francisco State University on August 2005 with a B.A. in International Relations and an Emphasis on Women’s Studies. Her interdisciplinary interests include queer theory, migration and diaspora studies, cultural studies, documentary making and digital arts. Her widely-screened video installation “fragments of migration” interrogates the institution of asylum in the U.S. based on sexual identity and gender identity. Art is for her a site for community activism and participation as well as a site to question institutional oppression and challenge normative constructions of gender, desire, citizenship and nation.
