  13. "Jessika Khazrik (b. 1991 between Beirut and Baghdad; lives and works in Beirut and Paris) is indisciplinary. Her practice in art, science, literature, and urban research explores the influence of the aesthetics of knowledge on spatial politics. For the past four years, she has been enmeshed in investigations related to scatology, ecotoxicology, and the influence of militarization on knowledge, technology, and the everyday."
