Anna-Nicole Ziesche has a BA and MA Fashion from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London. Her shift towards film and performance began in the last year of her MA Fashion when she made a film to be shown at the Truman Brewery, UK (2000). Early films were formal investigations of dress, and composition using film’s freedom to manipulate, magnify, and repeat both decorative details but also the body that they enfolded. Anna-Nicole Ziesche works as a visual artist, Associate Lecturer on the BA (hons) Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (since 2003) and a Research Fellow in Design for Performance at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London (since 2009).
Margret Wibmer is a visual artist born in Austria. She studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, lived in New York City for many years and is currently based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Margret Wibmer works systematically on the border between art and fashion, employing different media such as performance, new media, photography, video and sculpture. From an interest in dance, music and fashion she started to develop interactive performances from 1998 onward. Her work has been performed and exhibited in group and solo exhibitions at galleries and museums worldwide.
