Adetoun Küp­pers-Ade­bisi is pres­i­dent of AFROTAK TV cyber­Nomads, author, pub­li­cist, cura­tor and has been repeat­ed­ly award­ed nation­al­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly as a media and cul­tur­al activist. She has been design­ing var­i­ous for­mats of cul­tur­al edu­ca­tion and knowl­edge trans­fer plat­forms since 2002. Since 2005, she has lec­tured on cul­tur­al diver­si­ty, lit­er­a­ture, and media from an inter­sec­tion­al Black fem­i­nist per­spec­tive. In 2011, she was the Cul­ture and Media Coor­di­na­tor of the State Action Plan against Racism and Eth­nic Dis­crim­i­na­tion. Since 2012, she has curat­ed the Black Berlin Bien­nale for Con­tem­po­rary Art & Decolo­nial Dis­course, which has been an offi­cial project of the UN Decade for Peo­ple of African Descent since 2016. Since 2019 she is spokesper­son of the Coun­cil for Diver­si­ty and Social Inclu­sion (RDSI) of the devel­op­ment pol­i­cy cen­ter Berlin Glob­al Vil­lage in Neukölln.

Gueril­la Archi­tects is a mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary artist col­lec­tive based in Berlin. By focus­ing their work on spa­tial inter­ven­tions and socio-crit­i­cal art projects, they approach urban devel­op­ment by being »gueril­la«. This means that great val­ue is not nec­es­sar­i­ly only cre­at­ed by build­ing on a grand scale. On the con­trary, by work­ing with exist­ing struc­tures, it often only requires min­i­mal­ly inva­sive inter­ven­tions in order to give new mean­ing to for­mer invis­i­ble spaces. Gueril­la Archi­tects draw on the untapped poten­tial of polit­i­cal, legal und spa­tial grey zones as well as the free resources which are avail­able due to the abun­dance and over­pro­duc­tion of urban society.
