Cüneyt Çakirlar is Lecturer in Communication, Culture and Media at Nottingham Trent University.
(b. 1977, Istanbul) is a Turkish/Kurdish artist who lives and works between Vienna and Istanbul. In her practice, Güreş explores female identity, the role of women, the relations between women and their homes, and public spaces, as well as relationships between women. She also focuses on the image of Muslim women in Europe, racism and what it means to be a migrant. Her works include collages, videos, performances, photographs and objects.
Roberto Kulpa is an independent researcher, currently teaching at the Plymouth University. Recently he has worked on the critical epistemological investigation of the hegemonic geo-temporal knowledge situations in queer studies, and in addition the concept of the ‘cultural translation’ and the possibility of using decolonial and post-colonial theories and methodologies in the study of post-communist Europe.
Adnan Yildiz is a curator based in Berlin.
