Hanni Kamaly is a research-based artist working with sculpture, video and performance whose practice examines the political construction of identity throughout history using layered research and a material approach. Kamaly investigates who has the authority to write and display history, as well as how these histories are recorded, embodied, and collected. Kamaly’s works weave together fragments to expose visual culture, ethnography, and history, exposing patriarchal, colonial, racist, and nationalist structures that still exist today.
Hanni Kamaly has exhibited work at Accelerator, Stockholm; 34th Bienal de São Paulo; and Index – Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm, among others.hannikamaly.com

Felix Kindermann’s work addresses the relationship between humans and their environment, inter-human communication, and the relationship between individuality and collectivity through sculpture, sound art, performance, photography, video, and printmaking. By (de)constructing and (re)assembling objects, architectures and languages, Kindermann examines reciprocity. The artist is interested by the physical, mental, and social dimensions of the human body, which he reflects by assembling self-reflexive entities from fragmented parts.
Felix Kindermann has exhibited work at Museum Ludwig and Simultanhalle, Cologne; KANAL- Centre Pompidou, Brussels; and Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent, among others.
