The Cuban artist Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo (*1984, Havana) will follow the photographer Tobias Zielony, who had the post for a year. Active in photography, video and performance, the artist explores in varied ways violence against women and its impact, while also challenging the power system underpinning this violence. Her critical works frequently offer a very personal perspective. The support provided by the Peter and Irene Ludwig Foundation aims to strengthen international ties between art academies and in this way contribute decisively to a comprehensive education of students. Guaranteed for a term of five years, the professorship is awarded to an internationally active artist on an annual basis.
