Katarina Becic has moved to Berlin over a year ago, after 11 years living in London following her passion for music, technology and communications. She managed to merge all of these in her job as Head of Social Channels at Ableton, leading software and hardware manufacturer for music production. Prior to this she worked at Google in London and San Francisco. During Conversas she will discuss the general lack of female representation in Music Production, a project she started at Ableton to understand why this is the case and develop programs that will support and attract women on their journey to become music producers.

Yorgos Sapountzis studied Fine Art at Berlin University of the Arts and University Conservation of Antiquities and Works of Art at Athens School of Fine Art. In the making of all of Sapountzis' works handcraft is a distinctive factor. Sapountzis applies material that he can work, install and transport himself. In Sapountzis’ works the technique the medium is often constitutive of the form: e.g. in the use of serveillance or web cameras for the recording of his performances at night, in the construction of projection screens for the videos, in the electronic music that accompanies his films (and performances).
