Linn Hilda Lamberg is the artistic leader of Swedish performance company Poste Restante, recognized for challenging conventions regarding the relationship between art and audience. In their wayward work the visitors are invited to a personal exploration of complicated questions. Linn Hilda Lamberg has been teaching as a lecturer at Stockholm University of the Arts as well as a guest teacher at schools such as Helsinki University of the Arts and University of the Arts, Crafts and Design.

Fabián Barba was born in Quito, where they studied theatre, dance and literature. In 2004 they migrated to Brussels to study at PARTS. Next to sparsely doing their own artistic work, they dance in the company Zoo/Thomas Hauert.
Since 2009 they have been busy trying to understand the relation between coloniality and contemporary dance. Since 2011 they have been guest faculty at the Middelburg decolonial summer school and is part of the Decolonial Epistemologies Dance Lab.

Katya Sander is a conceptual artist. She works on the production and circulation of social imaginaries, investigating how collective imaginaries are constructed, and how they influence our actions and understanding of who we are. She is interested in structures, models and images through which we imagine ourselves as groups, communities and societies, and through which we also imagine what we can do. Architecture and language and their roles in the production of meaning and sociality play a central role. Sander often places her work outside of identifiable art-contexts, as interventions or collaborations with other actors.
Sander was professor at the Royal Danish Art Academy until 2017, and is currently professor at Lofoten Filmacademy. She lives and works in Berlin.
