Born in 1942.
She lives and works in Colombiers (France).

Tania Mouraud is a major figure in the world of contemporary art. From the end of the sixties, her work focused on the connections between art and social links by using various media such as painting, installation, photography, sound, video and performance.

She suggests adding a meditation room in our average apartments (1968). She displays on billboards her disagreement regarding society praising more ownership than human (1977). She also reflects on the decorative links between art and war, and on the limits of understanding by creating some “mots de forme” (1989). From 1998, she uses photography, video and sound in a strong interaction with painting, to question some aspects of History and the living.

In 2015, the Centre Pompidou-Metz was presenting a retrospective exhibition entirely dedicated to her work.
