Nicoleta Moise

Nicoleta Moise (*1989), works as a visual artist, writer and researcher with different mediums combining photography, video and performance. Through the use of archive material and entangled narratives, her practice is focused on making visible less known stories, characters or events. Her latest project Memory of the World - A Very Brief Selection (2020), is a text-based research project about a personal journey around the Memory of the World Programme - a initiative launched by UNESCO in 1992 to safeguard the documentary heritage of humanity against collective amnesia, climatic conditions, or deliberate destruction. She published two artist books, I am Not Entirely Happy Unless I am Here, In My Country (2016) and Not only the seaside, but I like the mountains too! (2014), both publications focus on the female body in different socio-political contexts. In 2018, she co-founded CUTRA magazine, an intersectional feminist publication in Romania.

Nicoleta Moise was a resident at KunstVereineRuhr from July to September 2021 and at the Haus der Geschichte des Ruhrgebiets in Bochum from April to June 2023.
