Warren Neidich is an artist and theorist who gathers together methods of poiesis and pataphysics to generate text-based, conceptual art works of illuminated neon glass that manifest as politically-motivated, conceptual and diagrammatic constellations in collision with painting, video and photography. Fundamental to his practice is thinking through the mind and brain as a resource for artistic production. He is the founding director of the Saas Fee Summer Institute of Art and currently contributing editor at BOMB Magazine and 02. See full bio.

Sarrita Hunn is a transdisciplinary artist, editor, curator, and web developer whose often collaborative practice focuses on the socially and politically transformative potential of cultural activity. They are a co-founder/editor of MARCH, a journal of art & strategy and assistant director of Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art. Additionally, they are a founding member of Cypher Sex, an queer feminist collective focused on digital self-defense for sex-positive and queer communities in Berlin and beyond, and offline, a gathering space for activist culture and radical computing in Neukölln.

Anita Osorio is an architect and educator living in New York, currently teaching at The School of Public Architecture at Kean University. She studied at DAAP, University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, and graduated from the Porto School of Architecture FAUP with a Master’s Degree in Architecture. She is the initiator of La Escuela de Arquitectura en el Centro (LEAC) as part of her ongoing research on archives as worldmaking infrastructures of theory and practice transforming architecture pedagogies

Albert Samreth is an artist living in New York City and Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions including the ACC in Gwangju, Bétonsalon Centre d’Art et de Recherche in Paris, Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, Tokyo Photographic Art Museum and has been featured in the Moscow Biennale of Young Art and the Singapore Biennale. His work has been reviewed in art papers such as Frieze and has appeared in Artforum, i-D, L’Officiel, and Vice. This fall, he will participate in the Rosalind Harris Visiting Critic program as visiting faculty at CalArts.

Keturah Cummings works with plant-based materials to critically examine and participate in constructed narratives about the “natural” world. Her photographs and videos situate the feminized body, porous and leaky, in relationship with the landscape, shattering notions of a separate and “pure” nature. A research-based practice has brought her to disparate forests as an artist-in-residence at Tropenstation La Gamba in Costa Rica and Arteles in Finland, among others. She also co-founded Nightmare City, which has been written about in Artforum and Modern Painters.
