Photographers:
Eelco Brand (Netherlands)
By using an electronic, digital toolset to represent and simulate natural scenes, Brand investigates the extent to which nature consists mainly of mechanical processes. Isn't nature in many ways also a machine?

Carlijne de Wit – ITP (Netherlands)
Carlijne de Wit uses Cassandra's Greek mythology as a starting point for her work. Cassandra is a beautiful woman who can predict the future. But she is cursed by the god Apollo for not fulfilling her promise to have sex with him. Because of his curse, no one will ever believe her again. Carlijne de Wit shows the sequel with a video triptych.

Koen Hauser
Koen Hauser is an avid horticulturist for whom the outdoors and the gardens form a refuge in which the repercussions of our contemporary life dissolve in direct contact with nature. Koen Hauser explores the possibilities of restoring a pure and more direct contact with the world.

Ahndraya Parlato & Gregory Halpern (Hawai & USA)
For three years, photographers Ahndraya Parlato and Gregory Halpern shot four times a year — on the solstice and equinox. The couple gave themselves a simple assignment: to take photos inspired by these transitional moments. The result was a series called East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

Leonard Pongo (Belgium)
Léonard Pongo imagines the diverse natural landscape of the Democratic Republic of Congo as a character with an invincible will and strength of his own.

Sara Hornig  (Germany)
With her series How Not to Forget Yourself Sara Hornig confronts the viewer with the complexities of becoming a mother while being an artist. Today it is still necessary to raise the issue of motherhood within the arts, as reality all too often shows that the moment a female artist becomes a mother coincides with a decline in career prospects.

Nele Bogaart
Inspired by the personal experiences of an Ayahuasca ceremony, Bogaerts visually explores the inner journey to a more mentally balanced life. During the corona period she was alone and thrown back on her own thoughts. Bogaerts noticed that now that the restrictions have been lifted, society is falling back into old patterns of speed, haste, ambition and the urge to prove itself.

Nida Mehboob (Pakistan)
Nida Mehboob is a staunch supporter of pleasure activism. Her interest in social injustice and gender discrimination stems from her life experience as a woman in Pakistan. Out of curiosity, Mehboob started reaching out to her friends to ask about their sex lives. Slowly, she gained unique access to women who challenged social norms. Pleasure, often considered taboo, is denied to women in Pakistani society. In this landscape, Mehboob's film is a testament to the courage of the characters who demand their sexual rights.
