Ben Clement & Sebastian de la Cour are part of the artistic duo that is ben&sebastian. They will be working on a project that entwines with the work that our Think Tank Programme Leads produce. ‘ben&sebastian’s work questions how gaps in knowledge shape identity and how particular absences, for example in the form of lost objects, incomplete artefacts, or excluded narratives, act upon the imagination.”
STINE MARIE JACOBSEN
Stine is a conceptual artist working to decode violence and law both individually and collectively through participatory means. She lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin, graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts with an MFA, and holds a BFA from the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles, USA. Stine’s research builds on her art project Law Shifters (2016 -), an interdisciplinary project where artistic experimentation and imagination are key to developing legislative civic engagement. Stine’s work explores how citizens can engage with the laws that govern them and how a constitution can be made more flexible to best lobby their interests.
