Saskia van Stein

Curator Saskia van Stein is currently leading The Critical Inquiry Lab master’s programme at Design Academy Eindhoven. She was previously the artistic director of Bureau Europa, Platform for Architecture and Design in Maastricht, and curator at the Netherlands Architecture Institute. Her practice is characterised by a transdisciplinary approach in which contemporary social issues give rise to questions about analysis, imagination and representation, and how these manifest themselves in the designed environment. From her deep-rooted interest in the “politics of curating” and curating exhibitions, Van Stein explores the possibilities of different exhibition formats and methods of knowledge production, in which the performativity of cultural production is central.

Her work has been exhibited in De Koepel in Haarlem (2018) and Foam in Amsterdam (2020). Her book “[read: quotation mark] was presented at Foam Editions.
