Julieta Aranda is a conceptual artist that lives and works in Berlin and New York City. She received a BFA in filmmaking from the School of Visual Arts (2001) and an MFA from Columbia University (2006), both in New York. Her explorations span installation, video, and print media, with a special interest in the creation and manipulation of artistic exchange and the subversion of traditional notions of commerce through art making. Aranda’s complex body of work exists outside the boundaries of the object, and is characterized by the struggle of catching sight of elusive concepts such as time, circulation, and imagination.

Christopher Kulendran Thomas is an artist whose work manipulates the processes of circulation and distribution by which art produces reality. Thomas’s work has been included in the 11th Gwangju Biennale (2016), the 9th Berlin Biennale (2016), „Bread and Roses“, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (2016), „Co-Workers: Network As Artist“, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2015) and „Art Turning Left: How Values Changed Making“, Tate Liverpool (2013). Forthcoming exhibitions include shows at Hamburger Bahnhof (Berlin) and Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm).

Annika Kuhlmann is a curator based in Berlin and London. As Artistic Director at New Eelam, she is collaborating with artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas on exhibitions for the 9th Berlin Biennale (DE), the 11th Gwangju Biennale (KR), Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart (DE) and Tensta Konsthall (SE). Together with curator Anna Frost she established the curatorial project which launched with an exhibition at BFI Miami in December 2015 and as an artist and founder of Brace Brace she has exhibited at MoMA Warsaw (PL), LD50 (UK), Auto Italia (UK), KM Temporär (DE) and for DIS (US).
