Their recent projects investigate the phenomenon of man-made landscapes around the world, where the making and marking of landscape (as a form of spatial modification) goes hand in hand with heightened state violence and the over-exploitation of resources. Recent exhibitions include Musée des civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, Marseille (2019), Metropolitan Art Centre Belfast (2018), Frac des Pays de la Loire (2018), MUMOK, Vienna (2017), NGBK Berlin (2017), The Jewish Museum, New York (2016), and 13th Istanbul Biennial, to name but a few.

Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan will present their work on 2 July at the CC Tobačna 001.
