Past Resident2018: Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center
Paul Kuimet works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to objects and works of art mainly from the Modernist discourse. Kuimet’s photographs are often displayed as lightboxes in darkened spaces, which heightens the viewers’ relationships to the physical and pictorial space. His films that are constructed as continuous loops are displayed in relation to the existing exhibition space further emphasizing their sculptural qualities rather than a narrative drive.

Past Resident2018: Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport of Austria
Mario Kiesenhofer uses photography, video and installation to reflect on notions of queer sexuality as represented in urban environments, virtual platforms, private or public spaces and gay clubs and bathhouses around the world. Kiesenhofer explores how queer sexuality is made visible by both presenting moments of sexuality and hiding them simultaneously. He works with photographic display materials, like smoked or acid etched glass, to express conditions, such as intimacy or privacy.
Mario Kiesenhofer has exhibited work at the Vienna Museum, Austria; BWA Tarnów, Poland; and A-Gallery, Tokyo, among others. He is the co-founder and art director of Streulicht, a publication series on photography and related arts.
