Your Background

Your Biography

I am an art historian, philosopher and media specialist. After a career as lecturer and assistant professor at the art history and media studies departments at the University of Amsterdam, I currently hold the position of head of collections and research at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. I have written extensively on contemporary art and theory, (co)edited several edited volumes (for example Now is the Time: Art and Theory in the 21st Century (2009) en Vincent Everywhere: Van Gogh’s (Inter) National Identities (2010)) and I am a curator of discursive events and public programs. The past years new media have been high on my agenda resulting in a.o. the ARtours project; the creation of an augmented reality platform for smartphones which can be used by museums to present their collection in innovative and interactive ways both inside and outside the museum.

I am interested in mobile technology, augmented reality, online practices and all its curatorial, cultural, philosphical and technological implications for the museum.
