Antonis Pittas’ work revolves around current social and political issues, marked by a profound connection to history. He creates spatial installations that respond to specific contexts, drawing inspiration from architecture, design, art history, the performative aspects of installation art, and its social dynamics. At the core of Pittas’ practice is the question about the relationship between the past and present. His practice delves into significant historical moments of destruction, decay, and resistance, playing a pivotal role in shaping his artistic narrative.
Antonis Pittas has exhibited work at Museum for Contemporary Art – Eindhoven – Van Abbemuseum, The Netherlands; Centraal Museum, The Netherlands; and National Museum of Contemporary Art Αthens (ΕΜΣΤ), Greece, among others.

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.
