Artist

Sandra Mujinga

Sandra Mujinga uses speculative fiction in the Afrofuturist tradition to investigate economies of visibility and disappearance. Her works examine questions of self-representation, preservation, appearance, and opacity through an interdisciplinary approach in which she typically reverses established identity politics of presence. Mujinga’s works deviate from a completely anthropocentric approach to understanding the ephemeral world we now occupy; as a result, the artist draws inspiration in how animals create survival tactics and adapt to hostile surroundings.

Sandra Mujinga has exhibited work at Museum of Modern Art, New York; Venice Biennale, Venice; and Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, among others.

Artist

Christine Overvad Hansen

In her practice, Christine Overvad Hansen explores the acute, crisis-ridden state of late capitalist society and how this crisis fundamentally shapes our understanding of what it means to be human today. Drawing inspiration from Western cultural history, she intertwines ancient mythological figures with contemporary and existential conditions, addressing interpersonal relationships and power dynamics. Her work unfolds in multi-voiced narratives that highlight the plasticity and vulnerability of the human psyche.

Christine Overvad has exhibited work at Holstebro Museum, Denmark; Horsens Art Museum, Denmark; and Parallel Vienna, Austria, among others.

Artist

Abed Elmajid Shalabi

Abed Elmajid Shalabi investigates how technological objects construct emotional and cultural shifts and alter our connection to our body, gender, and self. His installations link homophobia, shame and sexual dissatisfaction to the political power structure that reinforces such dynamics and produces them.

Abed Elmajid Shalabi has exhibited work at Center for Contemprary Arts, Tel Aviv; and Hamiltonian Artists, Washington DC, among others.
