Bettina Escauriza

Born in Asuncion, Paraguay, Bettina Escauriza is an artist and writer living in Philadelphia. She received her BFA in Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute, and an MFA in Electronic Arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Her work deals with a broad range of issues including urbanism, anarchism, indigenous issues, immigrant experience, environmental justice, and feminism, frequently expressed through mixed media and actions. Among these, she organized a series of conferences around prison issues and the abolition of the prison industrial complex together with Native American groups and others in 2008. She has also herded sheep and built outhouses in Black Mesa, Arizona, as a way to support Diné elders resisting relocation.

Escauriza is also an educator, and has taught K-5th grade science and organized high school programs on air pollution, among other topics. She has played and toured in an indie rock band and is currently completing an album. At Slought, she is the editor of the Advocacy Blog.
