MARJOLEIN VAN DER LOO INITIATES CURATORIAL AND PEDAGOGICAL PROJECTS FACILITATING MULTIPLE WAYS OF LEARNING BY EMPLOYING THE SENSES THROUGH A COMBINATION OF PRACTICAL AND DISCURSIVE COLLABORATION. HER PROJECTS ENGAGE WITH ISSUES RELATED TO ECOLOGY, FEMINISM, AGRICULTURE, DECOLONIZING, PEDAGOGY, STORYTELLING, ALTERNATIVE KNOWLEDGE, CAPITALOCENE, AND LANGUAGE.

MARJOLEIN CONNECTS ARTISTS, EXPERTS, AND ORGANIZATIONS IN INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATIONS TO INVITE CRITICAL REFLECTION AND PRODUCTION WITHIN A SOCIOPOLITICAL CONTEXT RELATED TO MIGRATION AND ECOLOGY. AS A CURATOR FOR STORYTELLING FESTIVAL MAASTRICHT (2019-2020), KIASMA STUDENT DAY (2019), LUNAR CALENDAR (2018), AND THE SELF-INITIATED PROJECT PARALLEL (2016-2017), MARJOLEIN DEVELOPED PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS THAT REFLECT VALUES OF COMMUNITY, EQUITY, EMPATHY, AND WELLBEING IN VARIOUS OUTPUTS. SHARING AND COLLECTIVE LEARNING DURING THE PROCESS IS EQUALLY SIGNIFICANT AS THE PROJECTS’ FINAL OUTCOMES.
SHE USES A RANGE OF METHODS INCLUDING WORKSHOPS, TOURS, WRITING, LECTURES, SCREENINGS, EXHIBITIONS, STUDIO VISITS, CALENDARS, PERFORMANCES, PUBLICATIONS, DINNERS, AND EXPERIMENTAL FORMS OF LEARNING AND SHARING.
