Jon Rafman
Artist
Jon Rafman is internationally recognized as one of the leading artists working with and responding to online found footage and the impact of tech on our psyche; he is a key figure in so-called post-Internet art. Rafman explores the Web, the primary technology of the information age, as it exerts its ever-more pervasive influence on individuals, society, economy, and artistic creation.
Gianni Jetzer
Curator-at-Large @Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Gianni Jetzer is Curator-at-large at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. He has realized numerous exhibitions with artists in his positions as curator at Migros Museum in Zurich (1998–2001), Director of Kunsthalle St. Gallen (2001–2006), and Director of Swiss Institute in New York (2006–2013). Since 2013 he works as an independent curator and critic based in New York where he has realized shows for various institutions internationally. For his most recent Hirshhorn exhibition, Brand New: Art & Commodity in the 1980s (2018), Jetzer presents a fresh and focused history of the decade when artwork became a commodity and the artist, a brand. Other exhibitions include What Absence Is Made Of (2017) and Suspended Animation (2016).
