            Manuel Correa was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1991. He lives in London, where he works as part of the Forensic Architecture project.

Correa has an MA Research Architecture from Goldsmiths University of London. Correa was possibly the first person to graduate with a certificate at the New Centre for Research and Practice, this claim, however, remains unverified.

Correa doesn’t work with any particular medium, but instead forms part of a new group of art professionals that are interested in the spaces available in the artworld to share investigations and creative explorations. His work deals with issues of memory and post-conflict reconstruction in contemporary societies.

His videos have been presented in venues such as the Rotterdam International Film Festival, The Tamayo Museum in Mexico, Presentation House Gallery in Canada, The University of Copenhagen, The Medellín Museum of Modern Art, The 8th Norwegian Sculpture Biennial, Kunsternes Hus in Oslo, Palazzo Grassi in Venice, DOK Leipzig international documentary film festival, amongst other spaces.
