Maarten Brijker

Maarten Brijker (b. 1993, NL) makes artworks dealing with dreams, anxiety and constructed identity. These themes are explored by the use of various mediums such as dance performances, installations, video-works, DJ performances, social media accounts, club nights and music releases. Maarten holds a MA in ArtScience obtained at the Royal Academy of Art, the Hague, and a BA in Economics from the University of Amsterdam. During the Alternative Education programme Maarten will research the mechanics behind his music label Devorm – a platform for collaboration that challenges the form of music releases. His research will be an active one and question how a label can be more than just a curator or distributor, but also a framework for creation and a producer of art.
