Grada Kilomba is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and theorist born in Lisbon, where she studied clinical psychology and psychoanalysis.

She holds a Doctorate in Philosophy from the Freie Universität Berlin and has been lecturing at several international universities, and was last a Professor at the Humboldt Universität Berlin.
