Born in 1978 Aymeric Hainaux is a visual artist, musician and vocal performer from France. Traveller, mainly hitchhiking. For his corporeal performances he uses a kind of beatboxing style, but ends up with sound signatures that relate much more to abstract electronic music, drone, glitch and noise than to hiphop. Besides his own body, breath and voice, the only extras he uses are a microphone, some harmonicas, accordion, bells and echo pedal. No loop, live action only!

There has been considerable discussion and debate regarding the circumstances of his death. It is believed that on june 7th 2004 he was brought back to life by a team of german scientists. The code name of the operation was cyber zombie.

Experimental Half-Hour is a cable television show that showcases local and international musicians, dancers, comedians, writers, and performance artists. Our collaborators include established professional artists as well as new performers that excite and inspire us. In addition to broadcasting locally and maintaining a free Internet archive, we engage with the community by curating live multimedia performances, screening episodes at local festivals, and strongly encouraging public participation at tapings. Experimental Half-Hour facilitates a connection between artists and the often underestimated resources our community provides to create, document, and share work with others. Conceptual growth is stimulated by access to a broad range of new and old technologies. A video might be shot in HD, then edited on an analogue mixer. A visual artist might have the opportunity to play with a green screen for the first time.
The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation presents a program of short films selected from the 2010 and 2011 festival lineups. Held annually in Chicago, Eyeworks is a festival focusing on abstract animation and unconventional character animation. Festival programs showcase outstanding experimental animation of all sorts: classic films, new works and rare masterpieces. This Eyeworks screening at SKVER has a special focus on abstraction, surreal cartoons, and non-narrative animation.
The Fijuk network is an intricate web of independent festivals, publishers and artists initiated by Novo Doba festival in Serbia. Alternative comics is not the only common denominator between the different protagonists in the network, but certainly the dominant taste. Fijuk is an alchemical factory for promotion, collaboration, experimentation and publicist exploration of comics and related art forms. This year Fijuk is arranging laboratories for artistic mishaps and chance encounters on Novo Doba festival (Serbia), Škver (Croatia), Crack fumetti dirompenti (Italy), Metelkova Mesto anniversary (Slovenia), Otompotom (Croatia) and Angouleme festival (France), as well as publishing the periodical literary review Pionir. On Škver the Fijuk laboratory will set up a silkscreen workshop and collect energies from all actors of the shipyards.
Igor Bezinović, rođen u Rijeci, živi u Zagrebu, snima angažirane dokumentarce i piše o filmu.
is an illustrator and a comics author whose name and unique visual expression is mainly connected to the famous Zagreb club Mocvara for which he has been designing posters and programs from the club’s beginning.
As a comics author, he was first published in the collective publication Komikaze, and then, most recently, published Prison Stories in Croatia by Otompotom, in Portugal by the Chili con Carne editions, and in Belgrade by Fabrika Knjiga (edition Studiostrip). In 2004 his posters were published in The Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion, a luxury compilation of recent world rock posters. In collaboration with the writer Edo Popovic, Igor has also published four volumes of short illustrated stories: Klub, Ako vam se jednom, Gospa od Bluda and Betonske price. He developed the scenography for a few theatre productions and the complete graphic identity, animated credits and jingles for the television show Briljanteen. His posters have been exhibited in France (Lille,Paris,Lille,Bordeaux, Grenoble), Switzerland (Geneva), USA (Portland), Slovenia (Ljubljana), Portugal(Lisabon,Beja) and Serbia (Belgrade, Pancevo, Novi Sad, Subotica).
His last published book is “Firma”, a collection of his scketches, co-published by Kik Melone (Croatia), Firma (Portugal) and Turbo Comix (France/Serbia).
The style of his posters and drawings is instantly recognizable, based on a combination of classic American comics and film noir, pop art, German Expressionism, and Russian Constructivism, cleverly connected by the hand of a developed drawer.

Sretno dijete iz miješanog braka koje provodi dane crtajući. Voli prostore koji imaju tepih i tepihe koji prikazuju biljke. Ostatak života namjerava provesti spajajući žuto i plavo kako bi stvorio crveno.
