Anouk Kruithof  (1981)  

Born in Dordrecht. Anouk Kruithof is a Dutch artist who lives and works in Berlin. She studied photography at st. Joost Academy, Breda from 1999-2003 In 2008/2009 she attended the artist in residences Künstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin and Meetfactory Prague. Kruithof is fascinated by the emotional and mental condition of people and how this is manifested in behaviour and act in society and time in which she lives. The starting point is her personal experience or fascination with a subject and in her project based work she combines the conceptual thinking with aesthetics. In the last 6 years she examined the limitations of the medium photography. Photography it is her main medium, but since 2008 she started to work with installation, video and performative actions. Her recent work shows how she determines the borders of this media. Anouk Kruithof is very much interested in the printed book as a form to show her final projects in. She published 3 artistbooks: Playing borders (2009), Becoming Blue (2009) and the Black Hole (2006) in collaboration with Jaap Scheeren. Her work has shown internationally and has been published in Capricious, Identity Matters, Foam magazine, Livraison, Eyemazing among many others.
