Anca Benera / Arnold Estefan
The work of Anca Benera (*1977 in Constanta / Romania, lives in Bucharest) and Arnold Estefan (*1978 in Targu-Secuiesc / Romania, lives in Bucharest) comprises installations, videos, and performances. The artist duo is interested in the structures hidden behind historical, social, and geopolitical narratives. Earlier works by Benera and Estefan addressed, among other things, notions of national identity and historiography, as well as the political and cultural concept of territory. In their more recent artistic practice they have been increasingly concerned with ecological issues such as extractivism – the overuse of natural resources – and its military and political impact on the environment.
