Lukas Feireiss works as curator, writer, artist and educator in the international mediation of contemporary cultural reflexivity beyond disciplinary boundaries. He attained his graduate education in Comparative Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethnology. His Berlin-based creative practice Studio Lukas Feireiss aims at the critical cut-up and playful re-evaluation of creative and intellectual production modes and their diverse socio-cultural and medial conditions. Lukas Feireiss is author and editor of numerous books, and curator of manifold exhibitions. He has lectured and taught at various universities worldwide including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, ETH Swiss Institute of Technology, University of Arts Berlin, University of Applied Arts Vienna, University of Arts Linz and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam, and is head of the new Master’s programme Radical Cut-Up at Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam.

Ursula Döbereiner is a fine artist who investigates the relationship between image and the medium of drawing, drawing and space in a variety of ways. Through drawing, she probes into the construction of public and private space and the means by which images are received through various media. Her point of departure is to inquire into how collective social notions and individual private desires, fears, and yearnings are manifested in media images, advertisements, surfaces, architecture, and decisions in urban planning. The core of her work lies in the reciprocal contingency between the material represented and the means of representation as well as in a critical reflection on the medium of drawing.

Döbereiner is a musician and and a member of the artists’ group Stadt im Regal

Emma Waltraud Howes (f. 1976, Canada) worked in a professional context as a dancer and choreographer before shifting her focus towards performance, video, sculpture, sound, and various 2D media within the framework of a conceptual art practice. Her current work is guided by observations of gestures with a focus on the development of an expanded choreographic practice. She incorporates public interventions, kinesthetic and architectural research, and an underlying drawing component in the form of graphic scores for performances that can be interpreted by orchestras, dancers, and the public. These compositions are representative of a stage in the development from concept and intention to depiction and effect. Howes approaches the stage as a place of theater and a moment in the expansion of a social process. She is drawn to include the audience in this practice through an invitation to occupy the space of the exhibition as actors in a process of negotiation and play with perceived borders and boundaries.

Raul Walch (born in 1980) crosses the boundaries of artistic genres in his broad and inventive practise. He works as a sculptor and conceptual artist but also slips easily into the roll of an investigator or becomes part of a performance. His focus is on creating an unconventional approach to social reality, often unexpectedly including observers in the process. Walch’s playful works and actions are not limited to questioning or participation. Instead, he creates ephemeral and largely site-specific interventions that respond to different environments around the world.

geboren 1970 in Stuttgart
Andreas Koch ist Künstler, Grafikdesigner und Herausgeber der Zeitschrift „von hundert“.

Er unterrichtete an zahlreichen Institutionen wie der Udk Berlin, der KHB Weissensee, Hfbk Dresden, Hbk Brauschweig, bbk Berlin oder Goldrausch. Außerdem betrieb er von 1996 bis 2004 die Galerie Koch und Kesslau zusammen mit Sybille Kesslau und beteiligte sich damit an zahlreichen Messen u.a. dem Art Forum Berlin, der Frieze in London oder der Art Basel Miami Beach. Die Galerie stellte unter anderem die Künstler Kai Schiemenz, Sofia Hultén, René Lück oder Tilman Wendland aus. Die Galerie gewann auf dem Art Forum Berlin 2001 den Preis für den besten Stand (Project Spaces).

Als Künstler erhielt er unter anderem zweimal das Berliner Arbeitsstipendium des Senats (2000, 2011), Kunstfonds Bonn (2008) und ein Stipendium der Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg, außerdem war er Stipendiat der Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. Er stellte seine Arbeit an vielen Orten in und außerhalb Berlins aus, unter anderem 2013 im Kunstverein Arnsberg. Für 2015 ist eine teils retrospektive Einzelausstellung im Haus am Lützowplatz in Planung.

Andreas Koch ist Mitglied der Alliance International des Critiques d’Arts (AICA).
Seit 2006 ist er Herausgeber, Autor und Redakteur der mit Kito Nedo gegründeten und zusammen mit Barbara Buchmaier geleiteten Kunstzeitschrift „von hundert“, die mit kritischem Blick die Kunstszene Berlins verfolgt. Außerdem schrieb er für die Zeitschrift „Spike“ Beiträge.

Als Buchgestalter entwarf Andreas Koch zahlreiche Bücher und Kataloge, unter anderem für die Künstler Olafur Eliasson, Elmgreen & Dragset, Eberhard Havekost, Veronika Kellndorfer oder Yarisal & Kublitz. 2014 wurde das Buch Kochbuch “The Kitchen” des Studios Eliasson für die Shortlist der schönsten Bücher 2013 nominiert, ebenso das Buch „Weltausstellung“ von Stephanie Kloss 2014. Seit 1994 gestaltet er die Obdachlosenzeitung „motz“. Er arbeitet im Büro für Film und Gestaltung, Berlin mit Stefan Stefanescu, Daniel Wiesmann, Sebastian Fessel und Kai Dieterich.

Rüdiger Lange worked for ten years in the context of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. In 1997 he took over the artistic direction for the Volksbühne’s PAVILLON at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. There, he realized exhibitions and projects, always with focus on artistic process in (semi-)public spaces.

At the same time he was responsible for PARABOLICA SPACES – a complex of buildings in Berlin-Mitte temporarily used as cultural venue until 2001. Another important project was the development of an extensive cultural agenda in the former Heeresbäckerei in Berlin-Kreuzberg. From 2002 to 2005 Lange figured out a various program of artistic productions operating under the label heeresbaeckerei-kultur. Additionally, he ran a club for advanced elctronic music. Both projects were performed in close cooperation with the particular real estate developer.

As co-founder of the Art Fair PREVIEW BERLIN he created a platform for emerging galleries. PREVIEW BERLIN is dedicated to the promotion of young positions. It explores new formats for mediation in the art market.

Rüdiger Lange has curated numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, South Korea, Canada, the US and Great Britain, such as BERLIN – LONDON 2001 in the ICA Institute for Contemporary Art London. As owner and artistic director of GALERIE LOOP – RAUM FÜR AKTUELLE KUNST he offers a continous exhibition program since 1997. Currently he presents Standard International – #1 Post Spatial Surfaces / #2 Post Spatial Devices at Geisberg Berlin.
