<br /> '''Renée Turner'''  is an American artist and writer living in the Netherlands. She has an MFA from the University of Arizona and was an artist in residence at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. She also has a Laureate in Theory from the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.  In 2006 she was awarded a scholarship from the Institute of Creative Technology and received a second MA in Creative Writing and New Media from De Montfort University in 2008. She collaborates with Riek Sijbring and Femke Snelting under the collective name, De Geuzen: a foundation for multi-visual research.  Their projects have showcased in Manifesta, Rhizome and Mute.  Whether writing digital narratives or working collaboratively, Turner’s work often engages with feminist issues and online media ecologies.  Education has always been an integral part of her practice. She has taught at the Willem de Kooning Academy, the Piet Zwart Institute, St. Joost Academy and Bergen National Academy of the Arts.

Since 1996, I have collaborated with Riek Sijbring and Femke Snelting under the name De Geuzen: a foundation for multi-visual research. Next to national and international exhibitions, our projects have been featured in Rhizome, Mute and Thames and Hudson’s Internet Art. Parallel to my collective practice, I have also produced text-driven pieces for the web that engage in the idiosyncrasies of networked culture. Whether working individually or collaboratively, my projects often employ tactical media to explore female identity, narratives of the archive and online media ecologies.

My educational background is perhaps best described as hybrid. After receiving my MFA from the University of Arizona, I came to the Netherlands where I was an artist resident at the Rijksakademie for two years, which was then followed by two years as a researcher in the Theory Department at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. In 2007, I was fortunate to receive a scholarship from the Institute of Creative Technology to pursue a second Master’s degree in Creative Writing and New Media from De Montfort University (Leicester, GB).

Over the past years I have taught art, design and theory at the BA and MA level at different institutions, such as the Bergen National Academy of the Arts (Bergen, NO), Piet Zwart: Fine Art (Rotterdam, NL), St. Joost Academy (Breda, NL) and the Willem de Kooning Academy (Rotterdam, NL). No matter what department or programme I have taught in, I operate from the firm belief that while it is important to specialise, it is imperative to promote interdisciplinary exchanges in order to playfully and critically explore the social, political, psychological and poetic dimensions of our world.
