Harald den Breejen was resident artist at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (09-10), and studied Philosophy at Birkbeck College (MA) and King’s College London (currently as PGR student). His work takes a research-based and collaborative approach that combines making with social and curatorial practice. He lives and works in Amsterdam, and has exhibited internationally.
He is co-director of the Centre for Philosophy and Visual Arts (CPVA) at King’s College London. In this role he has curated several interdisciplinary exhibitions, and has set up and runs an artist’s residency hosted by the Philosophy department.
My practice is concerned with the romantic as the individual who revels in the feeling of mystery and remoteness from everyday life. Loosely based on real people or events, my works restage the inner worlds of my subjects and offer fleeting encounters with their idiosyncrasies.
I was Artist in Residence at Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts, Kings College London and Kunsthuis SYB, Netherlands in 2017, and previously was Artist in Residence at De Ateliers, Amsterdam. Selected exhibitions include; ‘Repetition’ Monster Truck Gallery, Dublin; ‘New Wight Biennial LA’ UCLA New Wight
Gallery, Los Angeles; ‘Lost and Found’ Smart Project Space, Amsterdam; and I had a solo show at Triskel Arts Centre, Cork. I received a Degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art and Design, Masters in Fine Art from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London and PhD Fine Art from Middlesex University,
Big Band is an elastic group of experimental musicians, living in different parts of the world, who - either simultaneously or asynchronously - come together, this spring, to make music in Bedroom 2 of
Taking Johann Sebastian Bach’s Invention No.8 in F Major, BWV 779, as it’s primary cue, Big Band invites young and less young experimental musicians to listen to, reflect upon and offer their own unique interpretations and responses to this piece using a variety of toy-musical-instruments, classical instruments and improvised, non-traditional instruments while having plenty of fun in the process, of course!
Laura Little is a Senior Lecturer in Publishing at Bath Spa University. A practicing book artist, she founded the Pink Parrot Press in 2012.

An Archivist is a member of The Dollhouse staff who divides her time (unequally) between laundry, vaccuum-cleaning, administration, art-making, child-rearing, critical-writing, press & communications and stuff.
General budget constraints mean that she has been recruited this season to also work in the attic. Her
archival skills are novice, so she is learning on the job, but enjoying the challenge of trying to find new ways to think about sustainable storage solutions and environmentally friendly methods of documenting a
contemporary art history.
