Vincent Vulsma (Born in 1982, Zaandam, Netherlands)


The work of Vincent Vulsma explores the tensions between autonomous art and the sociopolitical relations underlying its production. Important starting points for his investigations are the history and economy of cultural appropriation. An underlying theme here is the relation between work and artwork. By playing various production technologies off against one another Vulsma interrogates the hierarchic division of immaterial and material labour in an era that is dominated by digital forms of production.

Vulsma studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (2002-2006) and was a participant at De Ateliers in Amsterdam (2006-2008). His recent solo exhibitions include A Sign of Autumn at Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (2011) and ARS NOVA E5305-B at Galerie Cinzia Friedlaender (Berlin, 2009). Vulsma took part in group exhibitions at Museum Abteiberg (Mönchengladbach, 2013), Musée d'Art Moderne (Paris, 2013), De Vleeshal (Middelburg, 2013), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, 2012), Kunstverein Düsseldorf (2012) and the 6th Berlin Biennale (2010).
