Joost Rekveld

Joost Rekveld is an artist and researcher who wonders what humans can learn from a dialogue with the machines they have constructed. In a form of media archeology he investigates modes of material engagement with devices from forgotten corners in the history of science and technology. The outcomes of these investigations often take the shape of abstract films that function like alien phenomenologies. In their sensuality they are an attempt to reach an intimate and embodied understanding of our technological world.
Rekveld’s films have been shown world-wide in a wide range of venues and he has a history of collaborative projects with composers, theatre groups and different kinds of laboratories. Since 1996 he has been teaching interdisciplinary art on the intersection with the exact sciences. He is finishing his PhD at the Ghent University of the Arts and he is currently a guest teacher at the Université Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris and the Theaterschool in Amsterdam.

Joost is speaker at the Vrijplaats 2023 Creating the Experience.
