Bio/CV


Raúl Hott is a Chilean architect, researcher and artist. He develops alternatives and tools to palliate the damage and trauma provoked by the current political and economic system on our mental, physical and social health. Through an exploration of methods of perception, ephemeral architecture, sound, and movement practices he designs consciousness-raising experiences.

Raúl holds an MFA in New Forms from Pratt Institute. He is interested in pedagogy and has been teaching in different art and architecture schools since 2007. During 2017, he was a fellow resident of the experimental education program Capacete in Athens, and he participated in The School of Everything; a symposium for discussing the future of art education organized by Documenta 14's Public Program.

Raúl Hott’s work and collaborations have been featured at Centro de Residencias Artísticas Matadero Madrid (Spain), Point Centre for Contemporary Art (Cyprus), Art in Odd Places Festival (NY), Trestle Gallery (NY), Ed. Varie Gallery (NY), Blackburn 20/20 Gallery (NY), Espacios Revelados (Chile), Centro de Creación y Residencia NAVE (Chile), and HALLE14 (Germany), among others.
