Mathilde ter Heijne

Mathilde ter Heijne is a Dutch video, conceptual, and installation artist and university lecturer. She studied at the Stadsacademie in Maastricht from 1988 to 1992 and at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam from 1992 to 1994. In her current practice, she deals with the processing of oral traditions as an opportunity to preserve and pass on the knowledge of social minorities. In these contexts she examines the potential of rituals, participation, and performance. Her works have been exhibited at the Berlinische Galerie, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Ter Heijne is professor for visual art, performance and installation at the Kunsthochschule Kassel. She lives and works in Berlin.
