Kate Cooper

Propedeuse Tutor

In her video and photographic work, Kate Cooper explores the position of the female body in the history of digital image technology, and the labour and politics inherent within its commercial reproduction. By using how computer-generated images she destabilizes the division between subject and object, reflecting on how images always occupy a liminal realm between fiction and reality. Kate runs the course of Digital Practices in BEAR 1.

Karin van Dam

Propedeuse Tutor

Karin van Dam's monumental installations, sculptures and drawings can often be traced back to constructions and patterns hidden behind cities, architecture and nature. They seem like utopias in which you can wander, which take you on an imaginary journey and allow you to see the world around you differently. Van Dam is also a traveler. By coincidence she comes across her building materials: pipes, tubes, construction plastic, wells, ponds, wool and slabs of rubber. They form a pallet for temporary installations that she realizes in special places, in museums, but also on the roofs of buildings or the corner of a street.
