Matea Bakula (Sarajevo, 1990) graduated from HKU Utrecht in 2013 and currently lives in Utrecht. In her artistic practice, Bakula looks beyond the aesthetics of her materials. She goes to work like an investigator, trying to find the answers to the material’s secrets. She not only wants to know the qualities or limitations of the materials; she also wants to find out the underlying reasons. Recent shows include We do matter, Playground festival (STUK), Leuven (2019); The reflections on nature, Lumen Travo gallery, Amsterdam (2019); and Between grace and fury, Kunstvereniging Diepenheim, Diepenheim (2018).

Sabine Groenewegen (The Hague 1985) is a visual artist and filmmaker. Her feature length debut film ODYSSEY (2018), was selected for festivals including Doclisboa and FID Marseille, and programmed at art centres including Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) London. It has been celebrated by critics in publications including Film Comment and Debordements and was awarded Best Film by a jury of independent film critics within the Doc Alliance competition (a joined award by seven leading documentary festivals including CPH:Dox) and won Best Experimental Feature at The Istanbul Experimental Film Festival.  

Sabine’s moving image work is supported by distribution structures for artists’ film Light Cone Paris and Argos in Belgium. She is a lecturer and visiting artist tutor specialised in editing and artistic research at the Film Academy in Amsterdam and Sound Image Culture in Brussels.

Whitney McVeigh was born in New York (1968) and lives and works in London. Her work focuses on the psychological and physical aspects that underlie and define us as humans. Concerned with reinvention, she uses found objects, including books and old ledgers and creates large paintings embodying a sense of time and human imprint. Recent solo exhibitions include What is Worthwhile Doing in this World, Mount Stuart Visual Arts, Scotland (2019), Elegy to Nature, Eykyn Maclean, New York (2018), Language of Memory, Summerhall Arts, Edinburgh (2016), Inventory: Invisible Companion, Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (2015) and Dialogue, David Krut Projects, New York (2011).

Becket MWN is an Amsterdam-based writer and artist, whose recent projects have focused on the relation between language, speaking, and the production of the self to question current forms of political subjectivity. He received his MFA from the University of Southern California in 2014, and was a resident artist at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam from 2015 to 2017. He has recently exhibited at SculptureCenter (New York), TG Gallery (Nottingham), Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen (Haarlem), Root Canal (Amsterdam), and Vleeshal (Middelburg). His recent performances include Saliva (Barcelona) and How To Show Up? (Amsterdam).  

Stefan Pavlović is an Amsterdam-based filmmaker whose work focuses on personal closeness as a filmmaking methodology and images that come to express 'inner voice'. His short films have been screened at film festivals such as the Netherlands Film Festival, Easters Neighbours Film Festival and the Krakow Festival. He received his BA in film directing from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and his MA from the Netherlands Film Academy in Artistic Research. His cinematic research practice, by way of what he calls "from film-intimacy to filming intimately", questions the role of the camera within friendship. For this work he was nominated for the AHK Best Work Price and the Young Art Fund, Amsterdam.

Stefan is currently finishing his first feature-length experimental documentary, Looking for Horses, and is teaching Film Practices at the Leiden University in the Political Science Department.

Jelena Rosić is a professional film editor, educator and researcher on film and cognition in relation to neurocinematics and neuroaesthetics. She is a doctoral candidate in New Media at the multidisciplinary Aalto University (sci-art-tech-biz) and Early-Stage Researcher at Enactive Virtuality Lab, Tallinn University. She is also pursuing an MSc in Cognitive Scence at the Univeristy of Vienna and Medical University Vienna. Rosić specializes in Micro-phenomenological methods for the study of lived experience and its relations to various cognitive phenomena. By means of this framework, she researches augmented sense-making, the conceptual and empirical grounds for extended perception, and the constitution of novel perceptual modalities.
