ANNA BELLA GEIGER
Anna Bella Geiger (Rio de Janeiro, 1933) works and lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
She is one of the most valued Brazilian artists on the international scene, considered one of the pioneers in using non-conventional means to experience other ways of posing and questioning what happened in Brazil.
Although her beginnings in the 50s were abstract, in her first stays in New York she was stimulated by the questions posed by conceptual art, it was in the 70s when the cartographic principle is found as a privileged instrument of a critical vision and the beginnig of a stage of deep debate on the relationship between Brazilian (peripheral) culture and European and North American (centralized) cultures.
With her hybrid maps, visionaries and critics, full of anticolonialist clamor, Anna Bella’s works reflect the idea of decolonization. She questions the given maps, rewrites them showing the process, the stages, the cartography, documents, alters them and makes them visible through resources, procedures and languages that allow them to turn the hegemonic narrative into a spatial concept and revise the political concept of said space.
Geiger develops a contemporary poetic of the space, but the doubly contemporary condition of the artist is evident in the approach of the liberation of the autonomy of art and the specificity of the media as closed elements, keeping the pulse with each one of them in the attempt to establish interdependencies. Anna Bella, attracted by the intimate and subjective character of the video and the metalinguistic game, discusses the narratives of the television productions of that time, where consumption and passivity propagated by mass culture reproduced a vision contrary to everyday reality.


CONCHA JEREZ
Concha Jerez (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1941) lives and works in Madrid.
Concha Jerez’s path covers forty years of artistic activity. She belongs to the first generation in Spain ascribed to conceptual art in dialogue with the production of Fluxus, mostly with Wolf Vostell- and the pioneering Spanish group ZAJ.
Since 1976 she explores the territory of on-site installation through large projects, many of which take an intermedia character. Her work is characterized by the use of a wide range of interests and media, covering the still and moving image, the printed text and the trace, the word and the silence, noise and music, objects found or constructed, actions and performance, radio art and interactivity via sensors and the specific production for Internet, and always in dialogue and interaction with the physical spaces. From the artistic practice, Jerez traces strategies of resistance and dismantels the dominant discourse, often introducing the concept of interference.
A common aspect in all of her work is a dialogue and interaction with the physical space. Through all these resources she has addressed issues of deep social significance from a critical perspective, she has analyzed the mechanisms of censorship and self-censorship, the consumer society, the culture of spectacle, the manipulating power of the media to shape thinking, the impact of advertising, the various forms of control that the political and economic power have on individuals, the sophisticated surveillance and control that is practiced in developed societies, and the narrow margins of freedom that the democratic systems allow.
Concha Jerez has studied Political Science and piano at the Madrid Royal Conservatory. She has combined her praxix with teaching, being associate professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Salamanca between 1991 and 2011. In the last twenty years she has developed important international projects in collaboration with artist and composer José Iges. In 2011 she was awarded the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes, and in 2015 the National Prize of Visual Arts.
She has exhibited in galleries such as Galerie Schüppenhauer Köln, Angel Romero Gallery, Galerie Brigitte March Stuttgart, Gallery Evelio Gayubo of Valladolid, Lüpke Gallery of Frankfurt, Sandman & Haak Gallery of Hannover, Saro León Gallery of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Adora Calvo Gallery of Salamanca, and Aural Gallery of Alicante.
Her works are in the permanent collections of major European museums like the Museum Moderner Kunst Norkoping (Sweden), Museo Vostell Malpartida (Cáceres), Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Museum Wiesbaden, ARTIUM (Vitoria), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid Museum of Fine Arts of Santander, Museo Casa Natal de Jovellanos, Museum of Contemporary Art in Vilafamés and MUSAC in León. As well as in various corporate and private collections: “La Caixa” Foundation Collection Madrid, Caja Burgos, National Library, Brigitte March Stuttgart, Cologne Schüppenhauer Collection Citoler Pilar and Archive Lafuente, ZKM (Zentrum Karlsruhe für Medientechnologie), among others.
