If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
a radical phenomenologist, a subjective terrorist, material actionist and situationist.
2009 - 2011 MFA, Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
2002 - 2007 BA, Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague, Netherlands
About my artwork
Trained as a visual artist I am available as lecturer, researcher, adviser, for presentations and always searching for new collaborations.
All my activities generate insights for my ongoing research after the public sphere. All experience based projects provide knowledge over our shared and supported idea of reality. I want to stimulate people's involvement in the way our idea of reality is designed. My interventions are trajectories rather than destinations, they try to improve the level of transparency in power structures and innovate the democratic process. I organize collective laboratories by liberating institutionalized knowledge and resources. Together we form effective opposition to existing forms of crowd control and develop alternatives.
Thank you for your interest. Don't hesitate to contact me.
