Anna Kućma

Anna Kućma is a Kampala-based independent Polish curator, writer, and art project manager. Born and raised in Krakow, Poland, she has been working as a curator in East Africa for 3 years, where she has independently and collaboratively conceptualized and realized several exhibitions. While writing her dissertation, entitled “The Many Ways of Leaving Venice“ which investigated the process of biennialization and its effects on large-scale contemporary art exhibitions, she became immersed in the strategies of display and the ways of communicating and mediating art with the public. While working in one of Kampala’s more prominent contemporary art galleries, she developed a strong interest in photography, which led her to start the Uganda Press Photo Award (UPPA), a platform for Ugandan photographers to share their experiences, learn new skills, and exhibit their work to a wider public. She has curated “Photojournalism in Uganda. Past-Present-Future,” “Eyes on the Ground,” and most recently “The Gulu Project,” a photography exhibition by Anne Ackermann, co-curated with Marc Prüst. She is a contributor to Addis Rumble, and has written for the Start Journal of Arts and Culture, Fotota Perspectives africaines en photographie, and Fotografija Magazine (pending publication). Currently, she divides time between the UPPA, working as an advisor for the LaBa Art Festival, and personal research and writing. Kućma hold a MA in Cultural Policy and Management and a BA in International Relations.
