Mark von Schlegell (b. 1967) has worked as a writer and as an artist/performer/producer since the 1990′s. His science fiction novels are published by Semiotexte. His shorter writings appear in art catalogs, magazines and films the world over. His latest literary theory / art-book crossover Realometer Re-Loaded is out now from Jan Kaps, Cologne.
Ellen Yeon Kim (b. 1985) works as an artist and a writer/translator. Using the mechanism of narrative, she works with the fallacy of the virtuousness imposed by society. Ellen works with video/photo installations, sound, poetry and theatre; she studied at Städelschule, in the class of Peter Fischli and of Simon Starling and graduated as Meisterschülerin, and studied at Slade School of Art for her BA. Her last reported location is available on https://ellenyeonkim.com.
