EMMA COCKER is a writer-artist and Associate Professor in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University. Cocker's research focuses on the process of artistic exploration and the performing of ‘thinking-in-action’ emerging therein. Her approach unfolds restlessly along the threshold between writing/art, including experimental, performative and collaborative approaches to working with language. Cocker's writing has been published in Failure, 2010; Drawing a Hypothesis: Figures of Thought, 2011; Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2012; Reading/Feeling, 2013; On Not Knowing: How Artists Think, 2013; Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line, 2017; The Creative Critic: Writing as/about Practice, and the solo collection The Yes of the No, 2016.

CORDULA DAUS is a writer and artist working across theory, fiction and performance. Since 2009 she publishes the semi-fictional journal series Toponymisches Heft. Her recent work explores the woman as a site, the reciprocity of body and language focusing on the concept of intensity. For this purpose she has created the fictional character Kay. Daus has presented her work in the format of publications, lecture performances and exhibitions in venues such as Research Pavilion #3 (Venice), Wiener Festwochen/Secession (Vienna), Centre d'Art Santa Mònica (Barcelona), Conceptual Poetics Day/Akademie der Künste (Berlin), ZKM (Karlsruhe), among others. She has been a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie and currently is a PhD candidate at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.


LENA SÉRAPHIN is a visual artist. Her artistic practice consists of collaborative writing and visual works that engage with fictionality. Séraphin holds an MA from Goldsmiths College and a doctorate from Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Her dissertation The Don Quixote Complex and Investigations into Fictionality was granted the Aalto University Dissertation Award in 2018. Séraphin has been a post doc researcher at the Department of Fine Art at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design. She is currently a post doc researcher at the Faculty of Education and Welfare Studies at Åbo Akademi University, and Pro Artibus Foundation artist-in-residence in Vaasa.
