Barbara Fragogna (Venice, 1975) is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and publisher. She currently lives in Padua, Italy.

Her artistic research mainly investigates the themes of productive failure such as irony, anxiety, sense of ridicule, nausea, individualism, undemocratic confrontation, patriarchy, obsession, the undoing of memory, the redemption of the ego, absurdity and paradox through artistic and curatorial practice as a useless but necessary action. She has exhibited at numerous galleries and institutions in Italy and abroad, was the artistic director of KH Tacheles from 2008 to 2012, and founded the independent publishing house Edizioni Inaudite in 2013. From 2015 to 2020 she directed the Fusion/Inaudite project in Turin. In 2020 she brought part of her projects to Padua.
