Artists

IKU

Johanna Odersky a.k.a IKU is a Frankfurt-based artist whose interests and music is circulated around the aesthetic form of recursion. Currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule, she uses this approach as a loose structure for creating, as well as erasing, mood and meaning. Recontextualization and self-reference are used to bring to mind different time frames and an alternative space to our linear histories and understanding of being.

Lilium Kobayashi

Lilium Kobayashi is an artist who lives in Tokyo, and is part of the Pink Queendom collective.

DJWWWW

DJWWWW’s unique style has been often described as the sound of the internet. Raised in Yamaguchi, he is co-founder of the blog SIM and the label Wasabi Tapes. His album “U.S.M!” released in 2015 has been cited as the best work of the year from The Wire.
