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.

zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap

zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap makes art to locate how caste is coded in the real. Their practice-based-research is driven to articulate how the caste-ideological-grading of workers, as various levels of Sudra (‘insignificant, menial and unknowledgeable’) counters reality as unintelligible, by notionally dissociating the bridge of Knowledge and Work. Kashyap runs a research-and-development lab called zeropowercut to create collective productions of Dalit-Bahujan discourse from their small studio in the old city of Patna-Saheb, Bihar.

zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap has exhibited work at The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art; The New Medium III; and Serendipity Arts Residency 2023, all in India, among others.
