Global Distinguished Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies at New York University
Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo (b. 1984) lives and works in Havana, Cuba. Her work explores the obstacles and challenges that women face from both a personal and global perspective. Working mainly in video, photography, and drawing, Matienzo is unflinching in her approach to address the act and effects of violence against women, often producing powerful and disruptive visual images.
Matienzo studied in the Elemental school of Visual Art, the Fine Arts Academy and the High Institute of Arts (ISA) in Havana, Cuba (1998 to 2008) and pursued post-graduate studies in New Media at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design in Germany (2011 to 2013).
