Brigitte van der Sande
Brigitte van der Sande is an art historian and independent curator based in the Netherlands. In the early 90’s she started a continuing research into the representation of the daily reality of war in art, resulting in exhibitions like Soft Target. War as a Daily, First-Hand Reality in 2005 in Basis Actuele Kunst (BAK) in Utrecht and War Zone Amsterdam (2007–2009), as well as many lectures, workshops and essays on the subject within the Netherlands and abroad. Her war research led to her current online and offline platform Other Futures, with work of makers and thinkers from all over the world who use speculative fiction to envision and build other futures. The first edition kicked off with an exhibition, a storytelling event on climate action and a three-day multidisciplinary festival in 2018 in Amsterdam. The programme CT Curated by Other Futures – A Multispecies Experiment in 2019 was a sneak peek of the second edition of Other Futures, that will take place in 2021.
Brigitte van der Sande is speaker at the FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency.
