Christel Vesters

She is a Dutch curator, art critic and researcher based in Amsterdam. She currently works on two longer-term curatorial research projects: Touch/Trace: Researching histories through textiles, which unravels the intricate connections between textile, history, and society from a contemporary art perspective. Vesters also initiated “Unfinished Systems of Non—Knowledge.” A long-term research project that started in 2014. The project finds its starting point in the premise that art produces its own form of knowledge; a mode of thinking and knowing that in part bypasses the intellect and passes through the experiential, the associative, the speculative and the imaginary. Vesters regularly contributes essays and reviews to various international art publications.
