Dagmara Genda (b. 1981) is an artist and freelance writer living in Berlin. Born in Poland, she immigrated to Canada as a child, where she lived in numerous cities including Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay, London, Toronto and Guelph. She has also briefly lived in the US and UK. A corresponding restlessness feeds her drawing practice which tends to focus on the changeability and instability of perception. From the foundation of drawing, her work expands into sculpture, installation and public art.

Genda is the recipient of numerous prizes including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a Canada Council International London Residency, Fellowship at the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Germany and fellowships at MacDowell and the Vermont Studio Center in the US. She has exhibited at the Arp Museum (Remagen, Germany), Kai 10 | Arthena Foundation (Düsseldorf), Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff), the Esker Foundation (Calgary), and at Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener + Area (Kitchener-Waterloo), among others. Upcoming projects include several public art commissions: one for Kennedy Station in the Toronto Subway System, an indoor and outdoor work for the District Court in Königs Wusterhausen, and an upcoming six-part sculptural installation in a new school in Allee der Kosmonauten in East Berlin.
