Donna Metzlar

Donna Metzlar (1969) has a varied background. The one aspect which remains constant is her commitment to social change. Over the past 7 years she has actively been involved in the Genderchangers, a group of women enamoured with technology, especially free software, open source hardware and the universal interoperability of systems. She takes a lead role in the annual event the Eclectic Tech Carnival (/ETC) and the Systerserver. This server is run by women only, hosts feminist websites and offers women interested in gaining system administration skills a work experience space. Together with Melanie Rieback she initiated the Girl Geek Dinner social network in Amsterdam and is board member of the WAITS Foundation.

Elise Kermani


Based in New York City and Delmar, NY, Elise continues her work in sound design and experimental theater. Her films combine dance, music, and video performances into a form she calls "Sonic Performance".



Born in Paris, I'm a VJ now based in Lille, North of France, with eclectic musical tastes that reflect in the diversity of live video acts I bring to gigs, parties and festivals across France and Europe.

My main project right now is Strap-on dildoS, with the UrbanPorn crew : an activist collective made of visual artists, musicians, performers, dancers and "sex workers for free" ! Sharing the same critical views on culturally-established habits, the "Strapettes" aim at deconstructing normative discourses about gender, sexual practices and identities, by means of porn workshops and performances in the public space.

Evelin Stermitz

Evelin Stermitz M.A., M.Phil.
1972 / Austria
Working on media and new media art projects by using different media like photography, video and net, including installations and conceptual works.
The focus of art work is on gender based female and socio-cultural topics. The issues of projects are about gender, role models and the gap between man and woman referring to the theory of Jacques Lacan in terms of "the Other" and the performativity of the body by Judith Butler. An important task is the female body and the outgoing connection to created symbolic meanings of gender in history and nowadays. A main emphasis is on performative works.
