Who We Are
Strijd ∞ curators (from left to right):
Ezra Benus, Astrid Kerchman, Jeroen de Smalen, Frederike Sperling, Tamara Breugelmans, Dr. Prof. Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes, and Sepp Eckenhaussen.
The Strijd ∞ curatorial team consists of a group of (former) students and a professor from the Art History Department at the University of Amsterdam. The group first met during the tense and uncertain time in which the protests began. They came up with the idea to participate, propagate, and proliferate the ideology of the protest by adding their voice through a curatorial practice. The vision of that first meeting is seen through the showing of Strijd ∞ at numerous locations, previously at the UvA's Maagdenhuis, Freie Universität Berlin, and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. As an investigation it can be continued through space and time.
A special thanks to all who helped curate the show in the more remote venues, and to those who gave their ideas, art, and time to the exhibition. This includes but is not limited to: Demelza van der Maas, Janna Adriaanse, Ahmet Ögüt, Janneke van Loon, Susan Legene, Emily Rhodes, and Cristina Buta.
