Inge Hoonte (1979, NL) works across writing, performance, video, sound and public projects, to orchestrate and document how privacy, identity, and behavioral routines shape the tension between reaching out and keeping one's distance in interpersonal communication and physicality.

Her writing has been featured by Mute Magazine, Requited Journal, Curbside Quotidian, Armchair/Shotgun, Polvo Magazine, and Meeting at the Crossroads Conference.
