academic assistant, Prof. Hermann Pitz


Diogo da Cruz is an artist based in Munich and Lisbon. His practice relies on the use of technologies to imitate, re-articulate or re-imagine unchallenged structures and systems in western society. He works on long-term projects that are driven by partially fictive scenarios. These fictive scenarios are often produced from scientific findings and historical documents referring to past, present or future socio-political circumstances, materialising itself as installations, sculptural and video work.


He received a BA in Sculpture from the FBAUL (2013) and a Diploma in Sculpture from the AdBK München (2016). He participated in the Independent Study Programme at Maumaus - Escola de Artes Visuais in Lisbon (2016).

His work has been shown at numerous exhibitions in Europe, Russia and Uruguay, including the solo exhibitions: "A shot in the dark nights of absence" TUM Physics Department Munich 2023, “our water will meet” Walk&Talk Azores 2022, “looking up from underneath” Forum Arte Braga 2021, “Wisdom Warriors” Ruine München - Various Others Munich 2019 and group exhibitions in institutions such as: S1 ARTSPACE United Kingdom 2023, arthereistanbul in Turkey 2021, Serralves Museum in Porto 2019 and Espacio de Arte Contemporáne in Montevideo-Uruguay 2019.
