In his practice, Nicolás Grum explores ideas around hierarchy, domination and structures of power through video works, performance and sculpture. In his art, he challenges social systems and institutions to create alternate historical narrative, and confront “truths” established by authoritative bodies or figures to deconstruct our understanding of today’s society. Grum perceives art as a collaborative practice; he works with different communities and other artists.
Nicolás Grum has exhibited work at Beijing 798 Biennale; transmediale, Berlin; and LOOP Barcelona, among others.grum.cl

Viktoria Schmid works at the crossroad of cinema and installation art. Her chosen mediums of film, video, sculpture, and photography act as co-authors and enter into a dialogue with the content. Medium-specific qualities shape her works, where she reflects on the spatial and social conditions of cinema, exhibition, and public spaces. Schmid is interested in perception and influencing viewers’ everyday ways of seeing. Her practice focuses on historical image-making-processes, the potential for representing landscape, and the historical development of cinema.
