Artists

Diogo da Cruz is a conceptual artist based in Lisbon, working in an interdisciplinary field of speculation. His projects call into question some certainties and prejudices of our society, through a rigorous and impertinent research about concepts familiar to the general public. He creates symmetric and ironic objects, positioned in a stage-like installation, which end up being part of a performance piece. He received a BA in Sculpture from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon in 2012 and a Diploma from the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München in 2016. In 2016, he participated in the Independent Study Programme at Maumaus - Escola de Artes Visuais in Lisbon. His work has been shown in Portugal, Germany, Austria, Spain, Greece, Sweden and Bulgaria

His works explore the political narratives that emerge from technology and digital culture and manifest into situated projects – bars, game-shows, banks and other participatory scenarios. He holds a BA Hons in Fine Art: Time Based Media and a MA (MDes) in Media Design from Piet Zwart Institute. He is an affiliated researcher at the Institute of Network Cultures and regularly writes for Open Democracy, Imperica & Furtherfield.

Petra Szemán is an artist based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. Working with animation and computer games, her practice is concerned with instances in which real life can be experienced as fictional. She creates fictional realms that fold back on themselves and dissect the ways our memories and selves are constructed. She explores liminal spaces, threshold experiences and non-localised identities on a personal level, but also expands into a broader sense of worldmaking and cinematic experiencing.
