Metahaven was founded by Daniel van der Velden and Vinca Kruk in 2007. Originally experimental graphic designers, Metahaven turned to art and moving image as a natural progression of their research into aesthetics and politics after the internet. They worked with organizations like WikiLeaks and Independent Diplomat, and produce music videos with the progressive EDM superstar Holly Herndon. Metahaven’s books include Uncorporate Identity (2010), Can Jokes Bring Down Governments? (2013), and Black Transparency (2015). Together, Kruk and Van der Velden teach at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Their work has been exhibited at MoMA PS1, the Victoria & Albert MuseumYerba Buena Center for the Arts, Artists Space, and the Museum of Modern Art Warsaw, among others.
