Milena Bonilla, born in Bogotá, lives and works in Amsterdam, is a visual artist, educator and independent researcher. Her artistic practice is currently invested in epistemic colonialism and the different ways in which its historical background and current structures affect organisms, language, imagery, social orders and the perception of history itself. She is also interested in information, practices and knowledge that propose and place particular questions about language and agency as ontological properties of humans only, and how this precept is embedded in the way in which economic policies under capitalism operate.

Her work has been shown, screened and performed in recent years among others at Galeria Municipal do Porto; Nest, The Hague; Framer Framed, Amsterdam; A Tale of a Tub, Rotterdam; The Jewish Museum, New York; Museo del Oro Quimbaya, Armenia, Quindío (CO); MHKA, Antwerp; MACRO Museum, Rome; the European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC), Amsterdam; Konsthall C, Stockholm; Temporary Gallery, Cologne; MOCO, Montpellier, and Kadist, San Francisco / Paris.

Milena Bonilla currently teaches at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.
