Jeanne van Heeswijk

Studio Jeanneworks, Freehouse, Qanat, Urban Front, Homebaked

Jeanne van Heeswijk is an artist who facilitates the creation of dynamic and diversified public spaces in order to “radicalize the local.” Her long-term, community-embedded projects question art’s autonomy by combining performative actions, discussions, and other forms of organizing and pedagogy in order to assist communities to take control of their futures. Her work has been featured in numerous books and publications worldwide, as well as at internationally renowned biennials, such as Liverpool, Shanghai, and Venice. She held a fellowship position at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht in 2018/2019, and was the 2014/2015 Keith Haring Fellow in Art and Activism at Bard College, Annandale-On-Hudson, NY. She received the Curry Stone Prize for Social Design Pioneers, 2012 and the Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change, 2011.
