Plan B

Besides working in my own studio I initiate, organise and curate exhibitions and presentations. As exhibition maker of Plan B I am independently working with different artists and organisations.

Plan B is an independent artist run platform I inititiated together with Tomas Adolfs.
I started Plan B in my studio in 2006, after years of a nomadic practice we have a steady place again since 2016 at Hamerstraat 22 in Amsterdam Noord.
Our new location is a collaboration between Mertens Frames and Plan B, Mertens Frames project space by Plan B.

Plan B aims to connect various practices and audiences and wants to create a quality alternative to more established models of presentation by focusing on the artists’ perspective. Experiment, the process of making and relating to specific contexts are of importance. Plan B has been working on projects and presentations ranging from solo/group exhibitions, festivals, screenings, lectures, to performances, residencies and releases of artist publications.

Since 2009 we initiate and organise Rietveld Uncut for de Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

Previously I worked as curator at Nieuwe Vide in Haarlem, as commission member at Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, and am part of publication collective The Session.
