Christoph is the managing director of the Bioimaging center for Microscopy and Image Analysis at University of Geneva. He leads a team of specialists who offer guidance for each step of imaging projects and who have an extensive know-how in image acquisition through a strictly scientific perspective.


Emilie is a research collaborator at Musée de l’Elysée, which she joined in 2015 after her studies in art history at the École du Louvre. She assisted and co-curated several exhibitions, among which reGeneration3, Slides: The History of Projected Photography, and Jan Groover: Laboratory of Forms. She is a contributing author for several publications dedicated to photography.


In parallel with her activity as a laboratory technician at the Institute of Biochemistry at UNIL, Christine has been a visual artist for more than 20 years. She explores painting and photography through an experimental approach, employing a fusion between the two disciplines. Passionate about mountains, freedom, and wide open spaces, she discovered that nature in all its splendor and virginity is what gives meaning to her work during two trips to Patagonia. These visits to the Southern Lands marked her deeply and allowed her to express in a very personal way the symbiosis between art and the world.


Lydia is an assistant curator at Musée de l’Elysée, which she joined in 2012. There she curated and co-curated several major exhibitions, among which regeneration, Paolo Woods - State, and Martin Kollar - Provisional Arrangement. She is a contributing author for several publications dedicated to photography. She was a member of the pioneering [Figure 1A] jury team in 2017 and 2018.
