Elke Uitentuis (Netherlands)
forms an artistic duo with Woulter Osterholt, but they often collaborate with a larger group of artists, academics or activists. They design platforms or functional objects in order to map different political interests and activate political and social engagement. The artists create circumstances in which sensitive topics, unspoken ideas and dreams can be discussed and analyzed. They do not consider art to be an end result of a particular process, but use it instead to create (pre)conditions for new events and relations. They have been working and residing in Cairo (EG), Los Angelos (US), Amsterdam (NL), Rio de Janeiro (BR) and Istanbul (TR).
