Kathrin Jentjens

Mediator, Rhineland

"Two core convictions drive me: that art is a mode of expression that can have a creative and aesthetic impact and that should be open to as many people as possible; and that it’s important to understand and respond to the particular social ties in a group, local community, a region, the sources of people’s sense of belonging."

Kathrin Jentjens completed the curatorial training at De Appel in Amsterdam, worked at the Julia Stoschek Collection Düsseldorf and directed the artist grant Just as well as the Kölnischer Kunstverein together with Anja Dorn from 2007-2011. In 2012 she was guest curator at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
