About the Speakers

Sonya Schönberger is a visual artist based in Berlin and currently artist-in-residence at Villa Aurora in Los Angeles. In her work, she primarily focuses on autobiographical challenges in life caused by political change. Many of her works have developed out of different archives that she has either found or created herself. Alongside these, she works with public spaces in Berlin that are in a process of constant change due to political or social developments.

Born in Israel, Liat Yossifor has been living in the United States since 1989. She holds an M.F.A. from the University of California, Irvine and a B.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. Using a monochromatic palette, Yossifor's gestural brushstrokes explore the tension between figure and ground, action and stillness, sign and symbol.
