Raphaël Cuomo / Maria Iorio
Maria Iorio and Raphael Cuomo are two artists who work as a duo and favour collaborative approaches, extensive research and long-term development of their artistic projects. Their recent projects investigated the economies of visibility in relation to past and present mobility regimes over the southern and northern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Their current body of work in progress researches the intertwined histories of migration, urbanisation and cinema in Italy in the period of the "economic miracle". The resulting articulated ensembles include performative moments, collected documents and films.

in collaboration with:

Emilie Bujès
Emilie Bujès is a member of the selection committee of Visions du Réel, International Film Festival, Nyon, and an independent curator (her two most recent projects were presented at – and conceived in collaboration with – Marcelle Alix, Paris). As a curator at the Contemporary Art Center of Geneva between 2010 and 2014, she has curated several projects articulated notably around film archives and exploring documentary practices and their relationship to history and memory.

Andrea Cinel
Andrea Cinel studied mass communication at Università degli Studi di Trieste (Italy) and philosophy at Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). Since 2006 he works at ARGOS, Centre for Art and Media, in Brussels. As curator and programme coordinator, he contributed to several group shows and co-organized events such as the festival Open Archive, concerts, talks and screenings. He curated solo shows by, among others, James Benning, Jordi Colomer, Harun Farocki, Andrea Geyer, Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo, Rinko Kawauchi, Nicolas Provost, Shelly Silver, Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor, Angel Vergara. Along with the in-house Argos activities, he develops extra muros thematic screenings and exhibitions that highlight the Argos audiovisual collections.

Tobias Hering
Tobias Hering is a freelance curator and writer. As a participant of "Living Archive – Archival Work as a Contemporary Artistic and Curatorial Practice" at Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art, Berlin, he has recently engaged in several projects dedicated to the study of archives, image politics and cultural memory. He is a member of the selection committee for the documentary and video festival "dokfest Kassel" and has edited the essay collection Der Standpunkt der Aufnahme - Point of View: Perspectives of political film and video work (Archive Books, Berlin 2014).

Annamaria Licciardello
Annamaria Licciardello completed her PhD at Roma Tre University, Rome, in 2004. She is a film historian and programmer. Her main interest is in experimental and independent cinema. She collaborated with Tekfestival, independent film festival in Rome, the Rome Film Festival and now the Pesaro Film Festival. She has published articles and essays in books and reviews. In 2009, she edited with Sergio Toffetti Paolo Gioli. Imprint Cinema. Her book Il cinema laboratorio di Alberto Grifi was released in 2018. She currently works for the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome.

Kerstin Schroedinger
Kerstin Schroedinger is a filmmaker and musician based in London and Zurich. In her work she seeks to critically interrogate image production and to produce and reproduce images as material of thought. She works with video, sound and text with a historiographical practice, questioning the means of production, historical continuities and ideological certainties of representation. Her practice is collaborative and often with artist Mareike Bernien (Berlin).

Andrea Thal
Andrea Thal is a curator and lecturer working on exhibitions, publications, theatre and film productions in close collaboration with the artists and other collaborators involved. Since 2007 she runs Les Complices*, a self-organised space and production office located in Zurich. Les Complices*’ ongoing activities also include a dense programme of diverse events that aim to create a continuous space for critical exchange on cultural, social and political issues and possible interventions into normative discourses.
