Maaike Gouwenberg and Joris Lindhout are the founders of the Deltaworkers artist-in-residency programme in New Orleans.
Maaike Gouwenberg is a curator and producer working between Europe and the US, where she is part of the Performa team in New York. Focused on performative practices, and through long-term collaborations with artists and curators, she specializes in the intersection between theater and the visual arts. In 2010, Gouwenberg initiated A.P.E. (art projects era) with artist Keren Cytter. A.P.E develops projects that cannot be realized within traditional institutional formats or frameworks. She is a board member of de Appel Arts Center, Project Space 1646, and musical theatre group Touki Delphine.
Joris Lindhout studied Interaction Design and holds an MA in Fine Arts. He is an alumnus of the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht (NL) where he investigated the social implications of fantastic literature in the Low Countries. In 2017 and 2018 he’ll go back to University and will explore the idea of ‘Digital Anxiety’ at Tulane University’s graduate Digital Media program.
