For many years Siebers worked for Royal Dutch Shell developing communication practices and technologies, human resources management and global future scenarios. He is invited by the Blue House to explore future scenarios and concrete utopias for IJburg as a mirror and focal point of Europe. Dr. Peter Thompson has been teaching at the University of Sheffield since 1990, when he was appointed to build up the provision of politics and history options within the Department of Germanic Studies. His interests have always been in the post-war history of the GDR and German unification, but his main area of research at present is in the field of Ernst Bloch studies. encompassing the philosophical impact of his theories of Hope, Utopia and his view of the central role of faith in social transformation. He has established The Centre for Ernst Bloch Studies at Sheffield. Since 1990 Dr. Thompson has published articles on the history of ideas, political developments in the GDR and post-unification Germany, Brecht, ecology and philosophy. In 2005 he published The Crisis of the German Left and is one of the founding editors of the journal DEBATTE that deals with German and wider Central European Affairs. Future projects include a monograph on the `Privatisation of Hope´ - focusing on the relevance of Bloch´s ideas in the context of the globalisation of the economy but also of the atomisation of communal values. Dr. Volker Schneider research interest is focused on Theory of the State, Organizational Studies, Evolution of political Institutions and Network Analysis. Julie Kitchener Dr. Isis Brook is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy with research interests in 'place'. She has published on ideas such as the 'Spirit of Place' and the use of phenomenology and Goethean observation to sense and come to know places. She is currently researching the role that participatory green spaces in urban environments have in counteracting the problem of what is sometimes called 'nature deficit disorder' and positively building healthy human/nature and individual/community relationships. Her web page is: http://www.uclan.ac.uk/iscri/isis_brook.php Maaike Engelen INSTANT URBANISM STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Dzokic and Marc Neelen) is a practice based between Rotterdam and Belgrade. STEALTH shape opportunities where various fields of investigation meet and where thinking about possible future(s) of the city are mobilized. They consider space both a tool and an agency, and focus on innovative aspects of sometimes hidden, temporary or unplanned urban practices that challenge ways in which to create physical aspects of the city and of its culture. In this, shifts of perspectives – from visual culture, urban research, spatial intervention, to cultural activism - are a key element. STEALTH produce test conditions to probe the shared authoring of urban space and culture. Their projects deal with the complexity and inconsistency of the contemporary city, like Wild City (Belgrade), Urban Catalyst (Amsterdam), Challenging the Conservative Brain (Kunstverein Munich), Cut for Purpose (Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam), Lost Highway Expedition (Western Balkans). In 2008 STEALTH co-curated the Dutch Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, while currently they curate the first contribution to the Tirana International Contemporary Art Biannual dedicated to urban issues. http://www.stealth.ultd.net/ International Festival (Tor Lindstrand and Marten Spangberg) began collaborating as “International Festival” in 2004 but have worked together on and off since the early 1990s, moving fluidly among performance, video, and architecture, academic theorizing and pure entertainment. Mårten Spångberg works and lives in Brussels and Stockholm. His work starts from choreography but branches out into different forms of expression. He initiated the Panacea Festivals in Stockholm (1996 - 2001) and co-curated the Body Currency, Wiener Festwochen (1998), Read My Lips, Oslo (1997), the Fourth International Summer Academy, Frankfurt (2002), and CAPITALS Acarte, Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon, (2002-2003). He is a frequent essayist and has worked as an opera and dance critic for daily newspapers, such as Aftonbladet (1991-93) and Dagens Nyheter (1993-97). Tor Lindstrand (Stockholm) is an architect active in his own office Larsson, Lindstrand and Palme. He is senior lecturer at the Royal School of Architecture in Stockholm specialised in digitial interfaces for architectural production. He is a pioneer in respect of creative platforms issued for emerging 3D environments. He is the initiator of LOL architects the first large scale online 3D architectural office. Tor Lindstrand has worked as an artist often together with Mårten Spångberg creating works for both visual and performance art contexts. He is also an editor of Merge Magazine, a magazine on visual culture published in English since 1996. Dubravka Sekulic, born 1980, is an architect-researcher, considering architecture as cultural practice that can motivate and guide changes in future. Since 2003 she is working at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade with teacher Ivan Kucina, as a teaching assistant on various programs, most of them cooperative projects with different architecture schools. Since 2007 she is the executive editor of Anchor, newly established school magazine. Recent research projects include a consultancy study "New spatial strategy for city of Zagreb" (2007) in collaboration with Platforma 9.81; a catalogue of Belgrade informal architecture co-authored with Ivan Kucina. Currently, she is a researcher in the design department at the Jan van Eyck Academy working on a project about transformation of department stores in former Yugoslavia. Emiliano Gandolfi is an architect and curator with specific interests in art and architecture. He was the curator of the Experimental Architecture section of the Italian Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, 11th International Architecture Exhibition. Santiago Cirugeda, born 1971, has produced architectural projects, written articles and participated in different educational and cultural contexts (master classes, seminars, conferences, workshops, exhibitions, debates, etc.). For the last decade Santiago Cirugeda has been developing subversive projects in different areas of urban reality which help him to tolerate our complicated social life. His projects range from systematic occupations of public spaces with containers to prosthetics specially built for façades, courtyards, roofs and even vacant lots. And all this happening somewhere between the legality and illegality which reminds us of the huge control we are constantly under. For that purpose, he has generated protocols of action appearing in several mass-media, websites and publications. The author only warns us as follows: “All urban recipes are for public use, and any citizen wishing to, can use them for their strategic and legal development. A comprehensive study of the different locations and urban situations citizens wish to intervene in is strongly recommended. Any physical or intellectual risk as a result of using such recipes is the responsibility of the citizen.” Manuela Zechner is a cultural worker and researcher living between the UK and Austria. Her main projects include the future archive www.futurearchive.org, vocabulaboratories www.vocabulaboratories.net as well as collective work related to contemporary subjectivity and ways of thinking change. Anja Kanngieser is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She has been working on examining the intersections between aesthetics and activism, specifically German activist groups that use aesthetic techniques as a means of articulating their dissent. She is also involved in the future archives project, and works with installation and radio. Eva de Klerk is a project booster, concept developer, network amplifier, fundraiser and the key motivator behind new creative and urban developments in Amsterdam. Eva is one of the initiators of the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam North. She has a passion for projects, which previously had no direction but are both raw and monumental. These can initially appear unsuitable for development and where a traditional economic approach may not provide the solution. It is these arenas, those where development appears to be impossible that excite Eva. ACCELERATED HISTORY Dr. Paul O’ Neill is a curator, artist, and writer, based in Bristol.
