Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński is a writer, artist, and scholar. Her research-based and process-oriented practice rooted in Black feminist theory revolves around archives, specifically the gaps and blanks in public archives and collections. Her works, which intertwine documentary and fiction and are presented in a wide range of mediums, examine the present of an everlasting colonial past. Kazeem-Kamiński’s first artistic monograph a past without closure will be published by Sternberg Press in 2023.
Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński has exhibited work at 2023 Liverpool Biennial, United Kingdom; Camera Austria, Austria; and Kunsthalle Wien, Viena, among others.

Anawana Haloba’s artistic practice is an ongoing investigation of societies’ positions within various political, social, economic, ideological, cultural, and post-independence frameworks. Haloba drafts poetry in the form of sketches for her work, from which she abstracts to performative-based artworks in moving image, installation, and sound. She constructs scenarios in which the material culture of any given location can be probed and reconsidered within the context of rapidly shifting contemporary subjectivities.
Anawana Haloba has exhibited work at Center Georges Pompidou, France; Biennale di Venezia, Italy; and Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazil, among others.
