Ingrid Vranken

Ingrid Vranken (1987) completed a Masters in Theatre Studies at the University of Antwerp and Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin and a Masters in the Arts at DAS theatre in Amsterdam. From 2012 until 2017, she was the coordinator of the artist-run platform SPIN in Brussels, where she focused on curatorial projects in which our experiences of time and productivity are questioned. During her time at SPIN she worked to create knowledge for and about artist-run organisations and fair practices in the arts, which she put to work as a consultant on the charter for fair practices, Juist is juist, for the flemish artfield. The collaborative project Common Wallet has shaped her daily life since 2018, a life-experiment sharing finances with nine other people, as a way to rethink individual ownership, the commons, precarity and affective relations to money. Currently, Ingrid works as an independent dramaturg, curator and artist, and is a member of FoAM, a transdisciplinary laboratory at the interstices of art, science, nature and everyday life. Her curatorial and artistic practice focuses on enabling a systemic eco-feminist transition in the arts, through engaging with the knowledge and labor of other-than-human beings, and in particular plants. For this, she creates collaborative curatorial frameworks and speculative lecture performances under the umbrella of Rooted Hauntology Lab. Since the spring of 2020, she is part of the multi-voiced curatorial team of wpZimmer, a space for artistic development in Antwerp.
