Consuelo Tupper (Chile, 1992) is an interdisciplinary artist and writer, whose work centers on the limits of collective understanding and the role of language as mediator. Through text-based pieces such as manuals, maps, diagrams, lists and dictionaries, she explores the biases of what is considered knowledge, as well as its emotional components and the many challenges faced throughout its cultural transmission.
