Goshka Macuga is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and Goldsmiths, University of London. She works in various media, creating collages, installations and tapestries. In 2008 she was shortlisted for one of the most important artistic distinctions, the Turner Prize. In her work she often addresses the stories of well-known artists, male and female, raising questions about the place of women in history and art institutions. Archival research is an unusually important aspect of her methodology. Her works have been shown at such venues as Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany, Tate Britain in London, and Zachęta in Warsaw.
