Andrea - portrait by Dirk Wetzel Basel.jpeg

ARTISTINTHEWORLD travels through the art world with the aim of photographing as many artists as possible in their studio, always with their backs to the viewer. The homage focuses on connecting people, respecting them, appreciating them, celebrating the diversity of life in terms of background, experience and perspective, and thus making a reality visible in a series of special encounters. In these short meetings we share the studio with the common goal of taking the best possible photo. The photo series with 6200 photos includes the PLAYLIST (600 agenda drawings), linkMap (120 drawings and zines), 6 AITW HUBSA AIR'S, 100 HUBSA ROCKS, POP-UP shows and murals worldwide.

Bo Heller.jpg

BO HELLER is a transdisciplinary artist from Hamburg based in Rotterdam. In his serial and project-based works, he uses experimental methods to examine material processes and loops at the interface of analog and digital media technologies. He is particularly concerned with the material basis of images and our perception of them in the context of a constantly escalating flood of images.

Marja van Putten_edited.jpg

MARJA VAN PUTTEN, Amsterdam, influenced by the period of squatting and the feminist movement,  concentrates exploring the boundaries of materials on the combination of paint and textiles, alternating between coarse and fine, fine brushes or brooms, small sequins and frayed pieces of fabric, large stitches on the canvas, etc. Through unusual combinations and juxtaposition of contrasts, an underlying tension can be felt in her abstract works. She loves large works to combine monumentally large shapes and very small details in one piece. She is currently working on 3D works to make her work even more formally radical. She also organizes art projects.   CargoSpaceGallery

He leads his own projects and co-productions with like-minded artists, with a preference for free improvisation, and enjoys elaborate piano preparations, which, according to John Lewis (The Guardian) :“...push the boundaries of the prepared piano”.
