Residency/Work in progress

In his recent work Néstor García Díaz became more interested in looking at the areas where visual arts, popular and underground culture and current theoretical discourses intersect. In this concrete project which he will partially create in wpZimmer, he will try to play with “obsolete” or “dated” theatrical manifestations such as radio drama, masks, puppet theatre and ventriloquism inventing ways for them to exist in our increasingly mediated context. The overall structure is driven towards the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk (or Total Artwork), but using strategies that belong to the current Internet-based DIY modes of production. Therefore the piece will unfold as a collage of heterogeneous media and fragmented narrations.


Néstor García Díaz was born in Alicante and raised in Valencia (Spain). He studied theater at the Institut del Teatre, Barcelona and Choreography at P.A.R.T.S, Brussels. He danced in some projects led by choreographers such as Xavier Le Roy, Daniel Linehan and Michiel Vandevelde. In 2012 he began working as a performer for Tino Sehgal, being active in the visual arts field since then. He has collaborated with other artists in museum projects, such as the Dora García solo show at MNCARS Segunda Vez.

Despite producing pieces since 2010 he starts producing works exclusively for museum space since 2017. Recently he had his first Museum piece shown at Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporanea in Valencia (Spain).

Currently he lives between Madrid and Brussels.
