Roberta Goldfarb is a visual artist, graduated in Advertising (FAAP, 2001), with specializations in photography by Senac (São Paulo), La Escuela de la Imagen y el Diseño and Center Cívic Pati Llimona (Barcelona) and International Center of Photography (New York). Her poetics are based on a taxonomy of affects in which objects are brought together, organized and classified to fit into the sphere of art. In May 2021 some of her works were selected to participate in the Parallel Vienna – Editions with La Pamplona Art Studio.
