Aldje van Meer

Aldje van Meer currently works as senior lecturer, at the Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. In this position, she is teaching, researching, and exploring technical innovations relevant to artistic professions. She advises, inspires, and implements the use of technology in the curricula of the Willem de Kooning Academy.

Aldje van Meer (1971) holds an MFA in digital media design (Mohr Institute – FMI, Groningen). After she graduated in 1999, she worked as a cross-media artist/designer. Within her art practice, she developed several interactive multi-media installations and exhibited her work. In addition, she worked on commissioned work for a wide variety of clients.

In 2001 she started working in higher art education, as a part-time interactive media teacher at the Willem de Kooning Academy. Since 2007 she embraced art-education as her main practice.

 

In 2012, Aldje founded the stations; within the station, technologies are questioned, new technologies are being explored, and old technologies are being reinvented. The stations play a fundamental role in supervising, supporting, instructing, and advising students and tutors about making processes and (make) research at the Willem de Kooning Academy. Currently Aldje is coordinating professional development and supervising research through making within the stations.
