We are happy to announce that Alina Lupu has joined our programming committee.
The committee now consists of her and Anika Mariam Ahmed.
Alina Lupu, born 1985 in Romania, is a post-conceptual artist and writer. She has a background in psychology, photography and an incomplete education in fine arts – that last one courtesy of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Throughout the last few years, she was alternately employed and contracted by Deliveroo, Helpling, Foodora, Uber, Hanze Groningen, Willem de Kooning Rotterdam, de Taart van m´n Tante, and Poké Perfect Amsterdam. Her work has infiltrated: W139, Amsterdam; Onomatopee, Eindhoven; Drugo More, Rijeka; Rheum Room, Basel; European Lab, Lyon and Diskurs, Giessen, among others. And she has also been nominated for the 8th Sybren Hellinga Art Prize, in 2019. Her pension will eventually total a bit over 2 Euros per month. In 2020 she became temporarily unemployed and also, for the first time since relocating to the Netherlands, a full-time artist. To be continued.
