Hannie van den Bergh works as an artist and designer in Amsterdam. She’s researching how art and design can play a role in a changing society; How qualities from artists and designers can shape our thoughts on new technologies and new societal changes; How visualisation tools can be used to communicate, co-create, connect and raise curiosity. She is co-founder and curator of the Artist in Residency Deshima AIR (an art initiative to maintain and strenghen the cultural exchange between the Netherlands and Japan).
Jan van den Berg is best described as an explorer extraordinaire. The expeditions he ventures upon do not so much take him to uncharted spots on the map of the world but to the limits of the naked eye and the naked intellect. He has a penchant for visiting people and scientific projects that demand the most of his imaginative capabilities, and provide him with well-informed stories, at the border of facts and fiction. Stories that make a starting point for his documentary work at the intersection of performing arts and science.
