SIMON FUJIWARA (Born 1982 in London, lives and works in Berlin) is an artist whose practice has been described as "an poly-biographical journey through architecture of modern life, constantly rebuilt as it is retold". Exploring the limits of biography in his practice, friends, strangers, family figures and historical characters become players and authors in a polyphonic twin universe where distinctions between private and public, inner and outer worlds, fact and fiction are blurred to the point of extinction. Having studied at Städelschule, Fujiwara draws his life from his diverse upbringing and early influences - having lived in Japan, England, Spain and Africa - into his projects.  

JOHN HOLTEN (Born 1984 in Dublin, Ireland, lives and works in Berlin) is a writer, editor and publisher of Broken Dimanche Press. His forthcoming novel Oslo, Norway is the continuation of the roman-flueve Ragnarök and follows on from the first installment The Readymades (2011) which was labelled by Art in America as “...one of the greatest works of art to come out of Berlin in recent years.” Interested in the expanded book’s potential in the digital age and the role of literary fiction in contemporary art, Holten has worked with many artists and curators and has shown widely in art institutions and galleries. 

HELGA WRETMAN (Born 1985 in Stockholm, Sweden, lives and works in Berlin) is a performance artist who tests the bonds and spaces of collectivity, movement and consequential interaction, Wretman highlights the unique approach of public/audience involvement and interplay, with the majority of her works requiring active participation. Attempting to showcase notions of creativity and self-consciousness not only for the artist herself, Wretman has been working with live, in situ, rehearsed and online-based performance for several years. Wretman completed her formal academic training at the Kungliga Svenska Balettskolan for Modern and Contemporary Dance in Stockholm.
