Jan Adriaans graduated from the Dutch Art Institute in 2015, he mainly works in video. In his recent work he explores the borders of subjectivity, the possibility of altering consciousness, and a neuroscientific move away from individualism as the core of society.

Katia Barrett is an artist based in London currently completing an MA at the Dutch Art Institute. Her recent research and practice draws upon developments in interdisciplinary theoretical biology in which the subjectivisation of nature corresponds with a naturalisation of subjectivity. From this she explores questions of agency, reason, consciousness and will. Recent exhibitions include Homeworks 7, Beirut, 2015

Ben Burtenshaw graduated from the Dutch Art Institute in 2015, and submitted a thesis considering prometheanism in the context of contemporary art. He is now researching how contemporary art, sport and science-fiction conversely deal with prometheanism.
