Dr. Michelle Provoost is an architectural historian specialized in urban planning history, postwar architecture, and contemporary urban development. She co-founded the office of Crimson Architectural Historians in 1994, which has subsequently been engaged in a large number of research and design projects in the fields of urban planning, architecture, and art. Since 2008, Dr. Provoost has served as Director of the International New Town Institute (INTI) in Almere, the Netherlands. Dr. Provoost teaches at various universities in the Netherlands and abroad and continues to be in great demand as a public speaker. She regularly lectures throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and the United States, and has been involved in many municipal, national, and private committees and juries.
Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung was born in 1977 in Yaoundé, Cameroon, and is an independent art curator and biotechnologist. He has been living on and off in Berlin since 1997, where he studied Food Biotechnology in the University of Technology Berlin, did a doctorate in Medical Biotechnology in the Heinrich Heine University Dusseldorf/TU Berlin and a post-doctorate in Biophysics in Montpellier. He is the founder and artistic director of the non-profit art space SAVVY Contemporary Berlin—a laboratory for conceptual, intellectual, artistic production and exchange that takes up the challenge of investigating the »threshold« between, as well as critically reflecting on and questioning discourses around the »West« and the »non-West.«
