Lola Ariasis a multifaceted artist whobrings together people from different backgrounds – war veterans, former communists, migrant children and others – in theatre, film, literature, music and visual art projects.Her recent plays includeMinefield (Royal Court), which brought together British and Argentine veterans of the Falklands/Malvinas War; What They Want to Hear (MünchnerKammerspiele, Munich), a reconstruction of the case of a Syrian archaeologist trapped in German bureaucracy without legal status; and Futureland (Maxim-Gorki Theatre, Berlin), featuring unaccompanied minors who escaped war, poverty and violence and travelled to Germany on their own.
Jessica El Mal is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator who addresses global structures of power through critical research, participatory projects and speculative future imaginaries. Often centred around collaboration, co-curation and collective knowledge, her projects usually include research, workshops and artworks designed to have a lasting effect past the point of production. Grounds for Concern, a work challenging the authority of man-made borders at a time of ecological crisis, is currently at MAMA Rotterdam. She has previously created projects with and forMIF, Journeys Festival International and Signal Film & Media, and collaborated with non-arts organisations such as the Collegium for Language in a Changing Society and Let’s Keep Growing.
