nomaduma rosa masilela

is an artist, curator, and writer.

Masilela’s art interests converge around ideas of the uncanny, the absurd, and the dissonant; collective work and strategy; and the ambivalent natures of authenticity, history and identity production. 

Most recently, she curated the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art with Gabi Ngcobo, Serubiri Moses, Thiago de Paula Souza, and Yvette Mutumba, for which she also produced an artists book titled Strange Attractors.

She is currently writing a dissertation on public and performance art of 1980s Dakar in the Art History and Archaeology department of Columbia University in New York.

She was raised in Łódz and Los Angeles, and is now based in Berlin.
