Ramaya Tegegne & Soraya Lutangu - Bonaventure

Ramaya Tegegne (*1985) is an artist and cultural organizer based in Geneva, Switzerland. Her practice addresses the processes by which the field of art is constituted by investigating its dominant and structural mechanisms. Tegegne examines the power relations, narratives, selection and production conditions of art and culture in the current context. In 2017 she launched the campaign Wages For Wages Against for the remuneration of artists in Switzerland. She is currently co-running the art and critical theory bookshop La Dispersion in Geneva.

Tegegne has presented solo exhibitions at Ludlow 38, New York (2019); Istituto Svizzero, Milan (2019); Kevin Space, Vienna (2019); VIS, Hamburg (2018); Galerie Maria Bernheim, Zurich (2018); First Continent, Baltimore (2017); and Fri Art Kunsthalle Fribourg (2015). Her performances have been presented at Théâtre de l'Usine, Geneva (2019); Kunsthalle Basel (2018); Kunsthalle Bern (2017); and the Swiss Institute, New York (2016) amongst others.
