Heimo Zobernig, Untitled, Acrylic on linen canvas, 2007
Much of Zobernig’s work critically engages with abstraction, constructivism, minimalism and conceptual art. He questions the principles and conditions which underpin them; challenging and reinterpreting them with a lightness of touch and an economy of material that is at times playful, dry, witty, unsettling and disarming.
Frank Richter is an artist and researcher currently based in Berlin. He seeks to amalgamate the historic precedents of computer graphics and science, involving research in spatial perception, complex dynamical systems and emergence. His works range from sculpture to graphic including animation, video and spatial art-installation.
Stefan Brüggemann was born in Mexico City in 1975. He is part of a young group of artists working in Mexico today that has attracted much recent international attention for their irreverent, radical, and often collaborative approaches to art production. He works with and through established systems of institutional critique and conceptual art, but alters their canonical approaches to art production to allow ambiguity, irony, and play to enter the works. Using all media, Brüggemann’s works often consist of small gestures, additions, or alterations to a given space, medium, or genre.

In 1959 she created the "Machine imaginaire" to carry out algorithmic calculations at a time when computers did not even exist and concentrated early on the aesthetic possibilities of Digital Art.
Vera Molnar was born in Budapest in 1924 and worked since 1947 in France (Paris and Normandy) . After an academic art school training (Beaux Arts) she makes non-figurative images.
Static 7, acrylic, magnetic tape, polyester, aluminium frame, 200 x 260 cm2005
Carsten Nicolai is part of an artist generation who works intensively in the transitional area between art and science. He seeks to overcome the separation of the sensual perceptions of man by making scientific phenomenons like sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears. Many of the works seem generative, creating beauty from chaos.
Further aspects of his works consider the integration of chance as well as the inspection of the interchanging relations of micro and macro structures. Special interest he also puts on so-called self-organizing processes, for example the growing of snow crystals.
