students to become familiar with a broad range of high-profile contemporary art practitioners.

Job Koelewijn is currently participating in a group show “Days push off into nights” at Spring Workshop (P.11) and during the talk he will share some insights on his practice. After the talk, he will be engaging the audience in a reading performance, Spinoza Reading Performance which has been realised in eighteen cities so far.
About the speaker
Job Koelewijn (b. 1962, Netherlands) works with photography, film and video. Koelewijn’s conceptual and tactile works are deeply influenced by text and poetry, particularly Samuel Beckett and Dante, and literary references make material appearances in his installations as pages or book covers. He studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam from 1987 to 1992 and spent a further year at the Sandberg Institute. In 1996 he spent a year in New York as an artist in residence at PS1. Koelewijn has shown his work at numerous exhibitions both in the Netherlands and abroad: the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum De Paviljoens, Almere; De Pont, Tilburg; the Henry Moore Foundation, Leeds, UK; Chisenhale Gallery, London; the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, New York; Istanbul Biennial; Muhka, Antwerp; SMAK, Gent, Belgium, among others. In 2006, he received the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art. Koelewijn’s work is currently on view at Spring Workshop, Hong Kong in the group exhibition “Days push off into nights” and his public project The Real Fiction Cinema is touring China and has recently premiered in Dongguan.
