Anetta Mona Chișa

Anetta Mona Chisa (1975) lives and works in Prague. Between 1994 and 2000 she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. In 2006, together with Lucia Tkáčová she was awarded the Oskár Čepan Prize, and in 2011 she exhibited at the 54th Venice Biennale in the exhibition Performing History (with Lucia Tkacova and Ion Grigorescu). Anetta Mona Chisa’s artistic practice often takes place in the form of collaborative exhibitions and installations, and she is particularly concerned with discontinuities and transformation of the East European socio-political context.
