Barbara Meyer is the director of the Culture Centre S27—Art and Education in Berlin Kreuzberg. She grew up in Switzerland and studied Fine Arts at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, later Art in Context at the HDK in Berlin. In 2006, she organized on behalf of the RAT FÜR DIE KÜNSTE the campaign OFFENSIVE KULTURELLE BILDUNG. Until 2009, she managed the Berlin Fund for Cultural Education. In 2020, she launched the Berlin Initiative Urban Practice with a group of artists and architects. Barbara Meyer is a member of Berlin Refugee Council.
Berlin born and based artist Mischa Leinkauf (*1977 in Berlin, Germany) deals with the hidden possibilities of urban environments and various kinds of limitations of spaces through borders, rules, architecture and barriers. By intervening in quasi—natural systems of order, he provokes situations that create temporary irritation and open up spaces for recoding. In particular, the border areas between public and restricted—access or non—public spaces serve Leinkauf as an extension of his artistic scope of action. His cross-media artistic practice includes performative interventions, video installations, films and photographs. His works are shown worldwide at film festivals, museums, art spaces and galleries such as: Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Kunstmuseum Bonn, ZKM Karlsruhe, Manifesta 11, Moderna Museet Stockholm or Helsinki Art Museum.
