Daphne Dragona is a curator and writer based in Berlin.
Through her work, she engages with artistic practices and methodologies
that challenge contemporary forms of power. Among her topics of
interest have been: the controversies of connectivity, the promises of
the commons, the challenges of artistic subversion, the
instrumentalization of play, the problematics of care and empathy, and
most recently the potential of kin-making technologies in the time of
climate crisis. Her exhibitions have been hosted at Onassis Stegi,
Laboral, Aksioma, EMST (National Museum of Contemporary Art Athens),
Alta Technologia Andina, and Le Lieu Unique. Dragona was the conference
curator of transmediale from 2015 until 2019. Articles of hers have been

Electronic Almanac. She holds a PhD from the Faculty of Communication
& Media Studies of the University of Athens.
