The CUSS Group is a multimedia artist collective and publisher. Their installation at the 2016 Berlin Bienalle samples South African historical and contemporary cultural material, from glossy lifestyle magazines and promotional merchandise to store-front displays and security facades. In addition to these cultural quotations, the installation functions as a curatorial platform and hosts cultural actors from Johannesburg to Cape Town: Angel-ho (Angelo Antonio Valerio), Faka (Thato Ramaisa & Buyani Duma), NTU (Tabita Rezaire, Bogosi Sekhukhuni & Nolan Oswald Dennis), and Megan Mace.
