Itziar Bilbao Urrutia

Job Title: 





I am a visual artist with twenty-five years of practice. I work in a number of mediums, but especially video, performance and photo. I have been a fetish performer and producer since 2003, and a campaigner against censorship for queer, minority and non-normative sexualities in the arts and media since 2008.

My work as a fetish producer was subjected to censorship by the UK online content regulator and became the subject of my PhD, completed in 2023, and on the subject of Femdom, my theme of art practice and research.
These other interests often cross over into my artistic practice to create a critical approach to feminist concerns about female identity and body autonomy and sex workers’ rights. I have exhibited my work extensively and shared my academic research at academic and art conferences across the UK and Europe.

I have published several articles and pieces on art and culture and have been interviewed on the subject of censorship on British and Spanish media such as EREMUAK Culture Journal, The Independent, The Guardian, Bizarre Magazine, Forum, La Vanguardia, El Pais and Russia Today. I live and work in London.

My work as an artist and anti-censorship campaigner has been mentioned by Amia Srinivasan, Dhaití Mac Síthigh, Paul Mason, Zoe Williams, and more.
