I am an independent curator, researcher and writer from the Netherlands, based in Berlin. I have a background in Cultural & Literary Studies, with a Research Master’s Degree in Arts & Visual Culture from Radboud University in Nijmegen. I completed parts of my studies at University of Amsterdam, Leiden University, and Humboldt University in Berlin, and specialized in the fields of museology and curatorial studies, socially engaged art and art in public space, as well as sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. In 2019 I joined B_Tour, a nomadic curatorial platform for artistic guided tours and urban interventions founded by Yael Sherill, as co-curator of the exhibition Tracks in a Box: when artists make guided tours. Since 2017 I have been working with ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics as curator, cultural manager and writer-editor-translator. There I curated Fussballaballa, an alternative public viewing format for football matches, for the Women’s World Cup in 2019, and led the artistic research project ART as/is SOCIAL on engagement in cultural theory & practice in 2017, among other projects. My work has been published in various contexts, including the volumes ARTECITYA: 9 approaches to urban challenges (2019) and I can’t work like this: A reader on recent boycotts and contemporary art (2017). As of last year I am a regular writer for the Dutch platform Modemuze.

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS
for participation in FuturePerfectLand, an artistic funfair for immersive speculative future scenarios shaped by the climate crisis
Monopol Berlin, September 9th – 26th, 2021
DEADLINE: April 30th, 2021, 23:59 CET
FuturePerfectLand is looking for artists!
This collaborative experimental art project by the Curatorial Collective for Public Art (CCPA) playfully appropriates the format of an open-air travelling funfair as a provocative curatorial framework in which the artworks become the “rides”. They stage speculative future scenarios influenced by the escalation of environmental change. It proposes a temporary, spectacular and immersive “playground” that disrupts the linearity of time, so that the range of intense emotions revolving around the climate catastrophe can be experienced in a controlled environment.
Visit the CCPA website for more information about the Open Call and how to apply.
