Anna Anundi (s. 1990, they/them, Academy of Fine Arts 2021-) works mainly with painting and performance. In their exploration the milky relationships of experientality and sensation wave, foam and burst into tears. In the wandering essence of stream Anundi dreams of reorganizing hierarchical and destructive practices and structures. They see vulnerability, compassion and non-violent love as a rebellious force for change.

Samira Elagoz (1989) is a Finnish/Egyptian artist and filmmaker currently based in Amsterdam/Berlin. He graduated with a choreography BA from the Amsterdam University of the Arts in 2016.

From 2013 till 2019, when still a female artist, Elagoz dedicated his artistic practice to researching and filming cis-men and building an extensive collection of first encounters with male strangers arranged through various online platforms like Craigslist, Tinder, and Chatroulette. Elagoz toured the world nonstop for 5 years, pre and post #metoo, with his performance Cock, Cock, Who’s There? which dealt with sexual violence he experienced in the past. On a quest to find intimacy after touring so many years, Sam realizes that the show started as a genuine ode to being a woman, but revealed itself to be a farewell to being one.

Now he identifies as a transmasculine with a high femme past.

He has toured with his works in various international film, visual art, and performance contexts, such as IDFA, Impulstanz, CPH:DOX, Kaaitheater, The White Chapel Gallery, The EYE museum, Edinburgh Fringe and La Casa Encendida, and won various awards for his works. Latest being the /silver Lion at Venice Biennale Teatro in 2022.
