School Lane, L1 3BX Liverpool
Taus Makhacheva often plays on the delicate relationships between art history, politics, and past and contemporary culture in her multi-disciplinary work.

Meet the artist, who will be in the city making a new work for Liverpool Biennial 2018, and hear more about her practice at this talk.

Taus Makhacheva (b. 1983, Moscow, Russia) lives and works in Makhachkala and Moscow, Russia. Despite being born in Moscow, Makhacheva’s cultural origins are based in Dagestan which often informs her practice. Makhacheva works with different media including installation and performance, but is predominately known for her video works, often exploring notions of truth relating to cultural authenticity and assimilation from the Sovietisation of Dagestan. Recent exhibitions include 57th Venice Biennale, Italy (2017); Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2016); Shanghai Biennial, China (2016); Kyiv Biennial, Ukraine (2015); and Moscow Biennale, Russia (2015 and 2011).

Makhacheva is one of the participating artists in Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you? running from 14 July – 28 October.
