About the speakers
Jennifer Higgie is an Australian, London-based writer and editorial director of frieze. She is currently working on a book about women’s self-portraits, titled The Mirror & the Palette. She is also the author of the novel Bedlam; a children’s book, There’s Not One; and is the editor of a book on art and humour, The Artist’s Joke. She also writes film scripts.
Mareike Dittmer is director of Art Stations Foundation CH, a foundation sustaining and developing Muzeum Susch and its extended activities.

Before moving to Susch, Mareike was the associate publisher of frieze magazine in Berlin. Trained in arts and cultural studies and communication science at UDK Berlin, Mareike started working with frieze in 1999 and founded, together with Jörg Heiser, the frieze Berlin office. Since 2011 she is also part of the editorial team of mono.kultur, a Berlin based interview magazine.
Chloe Julius is a PhD candidate in the History of Art department at UCL. Chloe’s research looks at the ways in which Jewishness was engaged by artists in Britain and the United States in the 1990s, and how those various explorations engaged a wider discourse on identity. Prior to joining UCL, Chloe worked as the Research Coordinator in the curatorial department at Tate Modern, focussing on research into modern and contemporary Asian art.
