Dennis Dizon is a research-based artist and writer. Their practice examines intersections of technology and ecology, applying queer and decolonial practices in its poetics, urgencies, and speculative futures.
Nicole L’Huillier works with sounds, vibrations, resonances, and multiple transductions to explore more-than-human performativity and agency from micro to cosmic scales; to create membranal and resonant (neo)rituals; and to investigate vibrations and sounds as construction materials for spaces and identity.
Nina Davies is a Canadian/British artist who considers the present moment through observing dance in popular culture; how it's disseminated, circulated, made, and consumed.
Nadim Choufi is an artist living in Beirut. He primarily focuses on the material histories and futures of innovation, their social and political driving forces, and the visual and literary practices that surround them.
bela is a performance artist and a musician based in Seoul and Berlin.
Simone C Niquille is a designer and researcher based in Amsterdam NL. Her practice Technoflesh investigates the representation of identity and the digitisation of biomass in the networked space of appearance.
Bahar Noorizadeh looks at the relationship between art and capitalism. In her practice as an artist, writer and filmmaker, she examines the conflictual and contradictory notions of imagination and speculation as they suffuse one another.
LOLZ is a promoter and DJ with GASH collective, and can regularly be found behind the decks throughout Europe or getting the dancefloors of Galway’s Westend hopping.
