Photography: Pablo Ocqueteau
Miguel Rozas is a Chilean-Belgian visual artist born in 1971 in Temuco, Chile.
He studied visual arts in Santiago de Chile (ARCOS), Würzburg (FHWS) and Toulouse (ESAV). In 2013 he participated in the MA program of the Universität der Künste (UDK) in Berlin.
His visual work carries heavy socio-political overtones; it is eloquently reflective especially in times of unveiled globalization and the crisis of the neoliberal model as a personal response to historical events and social and political facts.
Looking past the obvious, close observation and engagement of the subject is his process. The challenge is to see beyond the distraction of the conspicuous to capture its unique self. He seeks to inspire those who see his work to consider the world around them more carefully, to discover beauty and humanity in unusual places.
He currently lives between Berlin and Brussels. His research has essentially focused in the relationship between politics and mass medias creating video and photography portraits of social minorities and collaborating as a filmmaker and Camera Operator for several TV channels in Europe and a number of contemporary artists in South America, Europe and China.
