Maria Veits

Maria Veits is based in St. Petersburg and Tel Aviv, and her current interests include migration experiences and strategies of different generations and their reflection in different artistic practices (“Dreamland Never Found”, 3rd Jerusalem Biennial, 2017, TOK’s new project “Russian Bar”). She is also interested in activist practices of young artists that belong to the last soviet generation and the ways they use public space for engaging socio-political discussion (Civic Media Lab, 2016 and 2017, Dnipro, Ukraine). In 2014, Maria curated “Mobile Archive,” a collection of video works traveling across Russia from the Israeli Center for Digital Art – one of the projects that inspired D’EST.
