Ronit Eden – Art as an Agent of Memory

Date: 17/05/2023

Time: 17:00-19:00

Location: H401

Ronit Eden is an independent curator living and working in Amsterdam. She holds a degree in design and architecture. As of the last fifteen years, she has been curating and producing exhibitions about contemporary art in and around the Netherlands. 

She is especially interested in art that incorporates historical and cultural events that shape political identity. She also curates exhibitions that integrate discussions on the museum’s role in preserving memory; exhibitions that question the museum’s role in creating personal identity and community affiliation.

In addition, she prepared and guided research trips into the art scene of Israel/Palestinian society with more than 65 professionals from the Dutch art scene.
