Cem A. is an artist and curator with a background in anthropology. He is known for running the art meme page @freeze_magazine. Since its inception in 2019, @freeze_magazine has become a tool for creative collaborations between Cem and fellow artists, researchers and organisations. His memes explore topics such as survival and alienation in the art world, often through a hyper-reflexive lens.

His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Art Newspaper and Monopol Magazin. Selected exhibitions include documenta fifteen, Kassel (2022) and solo exhibitions Hope You See Me as a Friend at Barbican Centre, London (2022) and The Party at Weserhalle, Berlin (2021). He has held lectures at Universität der Künste, Berlin; Royal College of Art; Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Central Saint Martins; and Barbican Centre, London.
