Claire Li Yingxue is an art lover who is studying for a master degree in journalism at the University of Hong Kong. Her interests include visual art, design, drama, films and books.

Daniel Suen is an undergraduate student of journalism at the University of Hong Kong.

His fascination with fine art and the culture behind it has encouraged him to investigate the field through his words.

Violet Sun sees similarities between the social context in Hong Kong and that of her native Beijing.  She sees the cultural values of both cities becoming increasingly vague and mysterious as they are manipulated by different authority groups. She finds experiencing art fascinating, and enjoys writing about it, an experience she says enlightens her retrospectively.

Sabrina Gaisbauer is an editorial trainee from Germany, where she predominantly works at the youth magazine ”fluter” which focuses on political and social issues and is published by the Federal Agency for Civic Education. She is fascinated by art’s potential to touch and move people, making them reconsider their environment and eventually participating politically.
